The Lyrics

I wasn't gonna submit this one because it's a little dated, but I noticed nobody else had the same title, so I said, "What the heck". And no, I'm not really the subject of the song, but someone I know is.
Almost bankrupt, credit trauma
Debts are mounting; nothing’s left to give ya
Checks are bouncing higher than the trees
Repo men are calling, not to shoot the breeze

Countrywide, take my home
I can’t pay. What went wrong?
Guess I’m off to live with Momma
Take my home, Countrywide

Sub-prime lending, mortgage brokers
Kind of shady, loans with no disclosure
Credit tightening, reset A. R. M.
Even Alan Greenscam never saw the trend

Countrywide, take my home
I can’t pay. What went wrong?
Guess I’m off to live with Momma
Take my home, Countrywide

Plaster’s crumbling, pipes are creaking
Paint is peeling, water heater’s leaking
In foreclosure, not my problem now
Time to be a-leaving, I’ll get by somehow

Countrywide, take my home
I can’t pay. What went wrong?
Guess I’m off to live with Momma
Take my home, Countrywide

I hear a voice, as I shut the door, it calls to me
The telephone reminds me of my debts left unpaid
And driving down the road I get a feeling
That I should have sold out yesterday, yesterday

Countrywide, take my home
I can’t pay. What went wrong?
Guess I’m off to live with Momma
Take my home, Countrywide
