Fiscal Cliff Talk

Fiscal Cliff Talk

Tune of Little Boxes

Fis- cal cliff talk as the globe warms,
Fis- cal cliff talk as they dil- ly dal- ly,
Fis- cal cliff talk on the bube tube,
Fis- cal cliff talk is a scam.
There’s the wild fires and the dust bowl,
And the heat waves and the hur- ri- canes,
And the pols seem but to dil- ly dal- ly,
And they all want just the same.

Fis- cal cliff talk on the bube tube,
Fis- cal cliff talk but to dil- ly dal- ly,
Fis- cal cliff talk, fis- cal cliff talk,
Fis- cal cliff talk is a scam.
There’s the Blue Dogs and the Red Dogs,
And the Dem talk and the Re- pub talk,
And they all seem but to dil- ly dal- ly,
And they all want just the same.

See the peo- ple on the bube tube
Car- ry wa- ter for the ru- ling class –,
Me- di- care cuts, Me- di- caid cuts,
Pay- offs for gi- gan- tic greed.
And there’s home loans and there’s stu- dent loans,
And the debt col- lec- tors a- gen- cies,
‘Cuz the rich need their en- ti- tle- ments –.
Let the com- mon good be damned!

With aus- te- ri- ty and with deep cuts,
They shall tear up so- cial safe- ty nets –.
For all dra- ma ’bout pos- te- ri- ty,
Fis- cal cliff talk is a scam.
With their pipe- lines and their tar sands,
They will sell off the en- vi- ron- ment,
But they don’t care ’bout pos- ter- i- ty –,
As they buy and sell the Earth.
