On  Bailout Occupy Wall Street song lyrics: $700 Billion Chump Change. Wall Street lending greed. Live MICK TERRY video YouTube,  performed  LIVE  by  MICK TERRY



It would have been nice:
ivy'd Tudor trimmed in stucco and brown.
A little high priced,
but the agent kept the payments down.
And he said he could help us swing it
with some mortgage better than a balloon.
He didn't care we could barely wing it,
and then Jeanette lost her job too soon.

It would have been nice:
sculpted pool and fountain tiled in dark blue.
Who gave us advice?
Was he more concerned with you-know-who?
Just as long as he got his commissions
paid upfront with all the other fees.
Who ever said it would be his mission
to watch out for our family?

    SEVEN HUNDRED BILLION
    MAY BE CHUMP CHANGE,
    but it's more than I make in a week.
    SEVEN HUNDRED BILLION
    MAY BE CHUMP CHANGE.
    Will a bailout fix a gushing leak?

It would have been nice:
weeping willows shading manicured lawns.
We'd gotten enticed to have
ventured where we shouldn't have gone.
Lending money's a risky business.
Our whole country's on a windless tack.
Will seven hundred bail us out of this mess,
fluff our sails & bring our confidence back?

    CHORUS

        Whose ship is sinking?
        Is it mine? Is it ours? Is it theirs?
        Something is stinking!
        Should I fret? Should I worry? Should I care?
        Fat cat on a window ledge,
        tiny insects far below.
        One step and it's off the edge.
        Will his broker ever even know?

It would have been nice:
American dream without the picket fence.
We'd sailed into ice.
Were we blind or corrupted or dense?
Once again, do we bail out all the fat cats,
those who put us right here with their greed?
Once again, do we listen to the plutocrats?
Are they list'ning to the Wall or Main Street?
Once again, do we bail out all the fat cats?
Did they even think of bailing out me?

    CHORUS
