The Lyrics

Fathers’ drunk beyond belief. Mother had another kid, the letter comes with the welfare. The bankers call with their spread sheets. “We have got some cash to keep, you can’t stay around.”

Our house, was foreclosed upon this week.
Our house, was foreclosed upon.

The market has a frown. There’s something major going on, and it’s got to be profound. Our home was once renowned. Nothing slowed the market down and a drop was not allowed.

Our house, was foreclosed upon this week.
Our house, was foreclosed upon.
Our house, was subprime beyond belief.
Our house, was foreclosed upon. (Newsmen tell you you’ve got to get away)

Lehman chopped up our mortgage. Sold it to investors, got it backed by AIG. Sends it off with triple A. Now we’re the ones stuck to pay in lots of ways.

Our house, CDO sold at wall street.
Our house, was foreclosed upon.

Then they set up an exchange, derivates changed hands at Goldman Sachs and everyone such a very good time, had a fine time, a happy time. And I remember the decay, mortgages wouldn’t pay. Then they prayed nothing collapse beneath us, we’d flee bust.

Bear Stearns has met its day. Lehman died of price decay. Merrill bought by B of A. Goldman’s in really deep. Fannie and Freddie weren’t cheap. AIG is getting pound.

Our house, was foreclosed upon this week.
Our house, was subprime beyond belief.
Our house, it was a in a major REIT.
Our house, was in a
Our house, was backed by AIG, complete.
Our house, looked good on the sheets.
Our house, was really good on the street.
Our house, is worthless now, complete.
Our house, is now worth as much as Greece.
