Raise The Debt Ceiling Rap - Debt Crisis Gets A Theme Song

Video - Read more here.  The lyrics are actually pretty decent.  Most of you will be pleasantly surprised.  A collaboration of libertarian Reason Magazine and Remy Munasifi.

"You're looking for some cash it's about to get heavy / I got some big ol' piles of money and guess what -- they shovel ready."  Complete lyrics inside.

Raise da debt ceiling!
Raise da debt ceiling!
Raise da debt ceiling!
Raise da debt ceiling!
14 trillion in debt
but yo we ain't got no qualms
droppin $100 bills
and million dollar bombs
spending money we don't have
that's the name of the game
they call me cumulo nimbus
because you KNOW I make it rain
bail out all kind of cars
got all kind of whips
ladies ask me how I get em
I tell em STIMULUS
Social Security surplus?
Oh, guess what? it's gone
I got my hands on everything
like Dominique Strauss Kahn
ain't got no Medicare trust fund
son, that's just absurd
spending every single penny that
we see, son, have you heard?
ain't got no moral objections
ain't got kind of complaints
ain't got no quantitative
statutory budget restraints

 

Yo, we up in the Fed
and we living in style
Spending lots of money
while we sipping crystal
still making it rain
and yeah it be so pleasing
wait, not making it rain--
we be "Quantitative Easing!"
QE1, QE2
QE4, QE3
Dropping IOU's
in every fund that I see
printing the cash
inflating the monies
callin up China
"a-yo we straight out of 20's!"
in the club
we be louding out
while to the market, yeah
we be crowding out
on the beach getting tan
and sipping Corona
we got a monetary plan--
and it involves a lot of toner...

 

 

So if you look at the chart
and examine the trend
we borrow 40 cents of every
single dollar we spend
and non-discretionary spending
increases every day
do you have a comment for Committee?
I MAKE IT RAIN
Mr. Speaker, Mr. Speaker
would you beam me up?
A Congressperson cutting spending?
Couldn't dream me up
We're gonna default
if we follow this road!
I should have thought of this
14 trillion dollars ago!
I'm the king of the links
I'm a menace at tennis
I'm sticking spinnaz on my rims
picking winnaz in business
if you're looking for some cash
it's about to get heavy
I got some big ol' piles of money
and guess what--they shovel ready
