The Lyrics

Hey! Foreclosures, Foreclosures, Foreclosures,
A fam'ly heartbreak, as bad as it can be..
It's a shame, now!
Foreclosures, Foreclosures, Foreclosures,
Dey boilin' over and ruinin' de country!

New homes, folks, so anxious to buy,
Sometimes, dey take mortgage loan too high..

And then, Foreclosures,
Dey boilin' over and ruinin' de country!
Everybody!
(Foreclosures,) Sing out the sorrow,
(Foreclosures,) Pity now, the people,
Foreclosures, a fam'ly heartbreak, as bad as it can be
Where's de answer?
(Foreclosures,) System goin' bad now,
(Foreclosures,) Many in sorrow,
Foreclosures,
Dey boilin' over and ruinin' de country!

Save de money, go and buy dem house an' lan'
Losin' all was not part of plan,
So bad, now!
Foreclosures, a fam'ly heartache, as bad as it can be
Everybody!
Foreclosures, Foreclosures, Foreclosures,
Dey boilin' over and ruinin' de country!
Folks need help now!
(Foreclosures,)

I'd bet the house on this one! Brought back memories of Allan Sherman's parody of this too. Well done!

Sir, it's true !! The Pet shelters are full to the max! Mostly due to the fact that apartments here in norCAL won't accept pets. (of the 4-legged kind)
