Recession Bells of Christmas [Sung to tune of “Carol of the Bells”]
Written by Derek W. Logue

Money’s all spent, How could we let
Our government, Put us in debt?
Health care is broke, that ain’t no joke
Young and the old, out in the cold
Interest rates up, getting fed up
STILL in Iraq, why aren’t we back?
And those Chinese, jobs overseas
Cheap lead-filled toys, to girls and boys
O How they pound, raising their sound
Capitol Hill, lies to us still!

They bailed out banks, GM says thanks
What’s that about? Where’s MY bailout?!?
Do you have some change that you can spare?
Do you have some change that you can spare?

Black Friday Blues, Credit card dues
Bleeding us dry, I wanna cry!
All my stocks sank, Can’t fill my tank
Damn SUV, please help me!
401-K, all went away
Got my Pink Slip, Welfare’s a trip
Can’t make ends meet, Now I people greet
At a Wal-Mart, Hey it’s a start!
Recession’s away, that’s what they say
But I can’t tell, stuck in this hell
O How they pound, raising their sound
Capitol Hill, lies to us still!

Last dime was spent, Buying this tent
White-Collar dude, Will work for food
Do you have some change that you can spare?
Do you have some change that you can spare?

Debts of Today, Our grandkids pay
Put off today, that’s the American way!
