The Lyrics

My second attempt at a tv song parody...
Well we're movin’ on out,
Got the Foreclosure sign
Movin’ to a 2/2 crowded apartment, family of nine
Yep, movin’ on out
Bank’s movin’ on in, we’re outta time
Lost both our jobs, so it’s now the Unemployment line

Couldn’t survive this recession
Just couldn‘t keep up with them bills
But we kept on tryin'
To get help from Capital Hill
Now we're like the rest of America
The economy’s turnin’ to shit
How are we gonna live, how do I feed my family?
Obama brought change alright, but DAMN- this is it???

Well we're movin’ on out,
Got the Foreclosure sign
Movin’ to a 2/2 crowded apartment, family of nine
Yep, movin’ on out
Bank’s movin’ on in, we’re outta time
Lost both our jobs, suddenly, we’ve reached the end of the line…

Great take on downward mobility. Americans won't start getting their jobs back until a lot of politicians and bureaucrats lose theirs.
