GEE THE GRAND BARGAIN’S SINKING

GEE THE GRAND BARGAIN’S SINKING
(To tune of “It’s a Grand Night for Singing,” by Rodgers and Hammerstein from the 1942 (remade in 1962) movie musical, State Fair)

Verses:
Gee the Grand Bargain’s sinking
The ship in going down
Say Bowles and Al Simpson
“No one we’re convincin”
And Boehner’s still wearing that frown

Gee the Grand Bargain’s sinking
No side will give half-way
They’ve caused quite a ruckus
Like chickens they’ll pluck us
Ben Bernanke’s hair’s turning gray
And we are the ones who’ll pay!

 Bridge:
Maybe if voters complain?
Maybe they’d locate a brain?
Maybe they’d start, acting like they were smart?
Or, are they deaf? That would explain

 Verse:
Gee the Grand Bargain’s sinking
Sequester: shout, “Hooray!”
The Tea Party’s cheering
As doomsday is nearing
While sanity’s growing passé
And we are the ones who’ll pay!
