The Lyrics

In anticipation of the next crash.
O tankin’ Dow, o tankin’ Dow,
Your Laffer curve we’re graphin’.
Thanks to Greenspan, you dip so low,
And Summers, Hank, guilty also.
O tankin’ Dow, o tankin’ Dow,
What Kool-Aid we were quaffing.

O tankin’ Dow, o tankin’ Dow,
You’re the most hated.
How often you give us a fright,
A blight that causes many plight.
O tankin’ Dow, o tankin’ Dow,
You’re way overrated.

O tankin’ Dow, o tankin’ Dow,
Old man Greenspan did teach me
To put hope in his policies,
Which soon decreased my jollity.
O tankin’ Dow, o tankin’ Dow,
I had greenbacks—you leeched me.
