The Lyrics

Another day of Fiscal Cliff talks and another chance for a parody, since nothing was done. The OS is at:
Every day, cliff's a gettin' closer
Woe, disaster, 'cept to spoofin' poster
Bluff, psyche, Floor shill purrs with dumb delay
A -hey, a - betray

Levy pay, it's a little nasty
Government says go and spend and tax here
Stuff bites poor, they truly stun, dismay
A - hey, a - decay

Heavy daze, dreams are brittle, gone here
Pending haze, flubs, I'm going bonkers
Some replay, do you give a darn for
Spew, fluff, debris

Gone astray, I'm a gettin' dose, smear
Posing bastards, stand to crow and boast here
Puff like bores, they sorely numb their prey
A -hey, a - today

Musical break

Deadly fray, screams and spittle grow fear
Dread we weigh, we will have to pawn beer
Shun ballet, who knew we were goners
Screwed up by thee

Every day, cliff's a gettin' closer
Woe, disaster, 'cept to spoofin' poster
Bluff, psyche, Floor shill purrs with dumb delay
A -hey, a - betray

I always liked this Buddy Holly song. The line about puffing bastards numbing their prey is quite appropriate. If they manage to avert an immediate diaster, Congress and the President will expect us all to be appropriately grateful for fixing the mess they created by abdicating their responsibilities in the first place.

There's a few govern-mental agencys I'd like to throw off a cliff

Should have some old singers like, Cliffie Stone, or Cliff Edwards to sing this..but I imagine they're over the cliff, too, by now.

Nice light take on a so-heavy topic. Makes that cute music box intro sound so ominous. I love the way you milked Holly's 'hiccupping' vocal for extra effect. 555

Thanks Patrick, Dave, AFW and LL. AFW, this one didn't take as long because I used "Cliff" notes. LL, the music in the OS is so light and airy; I like the very basic solo in the middle too.

Love the juxtapostion of the twinkly OS with the razor-sharp satire of the lyrics - very singable. Loads of clever lines, a perfect job. 555
