Do you remember in September 08 when the whole thing came undone?
When Wallstreets chickens came home to roost and it looked like their race was run?
Enter stage right Uncle Ben and his merry men to save the day
They robbed from the poor and they gave to the rich
And they made sure their bonuses got paid
The game is set so give up hope
This rising tide will sink all boats
Romes on fire and theres no help for us
So grab your fiddles and join on the chorus
The sirens wail the tide is out
So grab your boards well paddle out
And ride this f****r in, all the way to hell
Lets party down its too late to stop
The other shoe is about to drop
So lets ride this f****r in
All the way back down, straight to hell
Recession? What recession? Its a goddamned depression
But they wont admit it yet
So theres still no work and its been four years
But look at the stock market!
How many bankers lost their jobs?
How many CEOs are out on the streets?
Congress dressed up as Rose of Sharon
And let them suckle at the government teat
Weve paid the banker and we paid the miser
Now theres no money left to pay the piper
Romes on fire and theres no hope for us
So grab your fiddle and join on the chorus
