The Lyrics

Another "America in the dumper" song parody...
Hello world here's the blues that we're singing
This economy is Crappy
A whole less Govt. spendin’ is what we'll be needing
Better make it snappy

Strugglin’ along its the blues that we're singin'
This economy is Crappy
Extended Unemployment benefits is what we'll be needin’
To keep us all healthy
To keep us all healthy

We had a dream we'd go on livin' together
Losing jobs and home in the recession, we keep moving on
Something always happens whenever Congress gets together
We’ll get a better feeling when they stop slashing funds

Trav'lin' along, it's the blues that we're singing
This economy is Crappy
A whole lotta economic prosperity is what we'll be needin’
To keep us happy (from becoming homeless)
Better make it snappy

A nice update to the 1930's "Happy Days Are Here Again".
