Thought I'd write a somewhat humorous song on an unfunny topic. Luckily, I have my position as a paper-towel spokesman to fall back on.

overcast fall day
bare feet on cold concrete
need to start moving away
grab the paper off the street

the headlines, they all read
times are getting tough
it's a downward correction
seldom steady growth, it's either boom or bust

things have gotten stagnant from all the hot air
and everybody's asking just how it all got there
now we're left to recover from a case of, burst bubble blues

so I too join the ranks
an unemployment stat
but I've no mouths to feed
and I really don't care for any plans

free market vulturists (venturists) say regulation's communist
but don't mind bailouts from so-called socialists
as we're stuck in the midst of these, financial meltdown blues

I'm not claiming knowledge
but I've read history
know wealth must be created
not from leveraged borrowed speculation

many folks on Wall Street
don't want transparency
'cept for the market hand
with shrouded instruments to stab you in the back

things have gotten stagnant from all the hot air
and everybody's asking just how it all got there
now we're left to recover from a case of, burst bubble blues
