The Lyrics

Stock prices fall and bubbles burst, panic spreads on Wall Street
Like a California congressman's intern, money starts to slip away
No Republicans with dignity nor Democrats with a brain
To stop a national catastrophe and the Federal Reserve was its name

Now all you traders should take a look just before you make the leap
You'll too soon be retired, and you wanna know where the profits have gone
But don't you worry at all, everything is OK
They have everything under control; the Fed has come to save the day

Growth? No good! Expansion? That's bad! Growth? No good! Expansion? That's bad!

Microsoft and antitrust
The Dot Coms are all about to bust
One quarter left to turn it around
Before we hit financial meltdown

Growth? No good! Expansion? That's bad! Growth? No good! Expansion? That's bad!

Socialists and ignorance
Bureaucratic malfeasance
The Welfare State we have to blame
And Keynesian doublethink
From the man who once was an Objectivist
From the man who once was once was once was an Objectivist

Stock prices fall and bubbles burst, panic spreads on Wall Street
Economists and CEOs clamor for news from the Federal Reserve
It's the end of our recovery and the beginning of decline
Because the Fed has foolishly decided to choke the money supply!

Growth? No good! Expansion? That's bad! Growth? No good! Expansion? That's bad!

Call me Alan Greenspan!
Bringer of strife!
These ugly shades of mine
Conceal my beady eyes
Don't forget twenty-eight the same mismanagement from the Fed!

Growth? No good! Expansion? That's bad! Growth? No good! Expansion? That's bad!

Economy! Depression! Economy! Depression! Economy! Depression! Economy! Depression!
