Do You Have the Debt Ceiling Blues? (Song)

Sunday, September 22nd, 2013


I can think of no more boring debate than the debt ceiling. So just to spruce it up a little bit I wrote the words to a song. I put them to the tune of “Heartbreak Hotel.” Tell me what you think.

Well, It started with George Washington
And now we sing Barack.
The government always overspends
but who of us is shocked?

We got debt ceiling blues baby,
Debt ceiling blues are here again.

When congress meets there’ll be some heat.
They’ll spin on every show.
The Dems will say let’spend some mo’,
Ted Cruz will shout, “hell no!”

We got debt ceiling blues baby,
Debt ceiling blues are here again.

So who will win this ugly fight
As the government spends and spends?
We the people will be left out
but we’ll vote ’em all back again.

We got debt ceiling blues baby,
Debt ceiling blues are here again.
Debt ceiling blues are here to stay.
