[On the Economy]

 Bearish 

To "Cherish"

(Words and Music by Terry Kirkman)

Parody Lyrics by Marcy Shaffer

Arranged by Greg Hilfman

BEARISH IS THE WORD I USE TO DEFINE: 
ALL THE FEELING I’VE INCURRED 
FROM EACH ECONOMIC SIGN. 
THE MASS OF ILLIQUID ASSET OVERVALUATION. 
THE CHANCE THAT THE SYCOPHANTS 
FINANCE US TO STAGFLATION. 
THE HIT FROM THE DEFICIT 
THAT'S TICKING DECIMATION 
TO THIS NATION.  
I'M SO BEARISH. 
YOU COULD CALL ME BOO BOO.  
OR POOH. 
 
PRAYERISH AND ABSURD I CHARACTERIZE. 
EVERY TOOL OF A BULL TOO COOL TO ANALYZE: 
THE IMPLICATIONS OF AN OIL PRICE THAT'S DOUBLE. 
THE GENERATIONS OF THE LABOR FORCE IN TROUBLE. 
THE DEVASTATIONS OF A HOUSING MARKET BUBBLE 
BURST TO RUBBLE.  
I'VE A BEARISH 
NOT LAISSEZ FAIRE-ISH VIEW. 
 
OH, IT IS ALL BUT CLICHÉD:  
THIS BED IS ONE WE MADE. 
BY BINGEING ON MONEY SO CHEAP. 
THAT WE COULD LEVER UP WHATEVER. 
KEEP THE WHOLE HEAP. 
BUT WITH RATES THAT LEAP. 
WE'RE IN DEEP. 
WITH WHAT WE'VE SOWN 
SHOULD HAVE KNOWN WHAT WE'D REAP. 
 
FEDS IN THE RED TO CHINA. 
A VERY SCARY THOUGHT. 
NOT BENIGN, A 
CONTRARY MONETARY SHOT. 
TO REDESIGN A 
NEW WORLD IN WHICH BEIJING'S BOUGHT 
THE SWAY TO SAY OUR RULES OF PLAY 
MAY BE FOR NAUGHT.  
AND ONE DAY WILL BE FOUGHT. 
 
BEARISH IS THE WORD I USE TO DEFINE: 
ALL THE FEELING I’VE INCURRED 
FROM EACH ECONOMIC SIGN. 
LIKE THE MANIC PANIC SCREAMS 
OF CORPORATE INDISCRETION. 
THE NOW VOLCANIC STEAMS 
OF MIDDLE EAST AGGRESSION.  
THE MESSIANIC EXTREMES 
WITH DREAMS OF A REFRESHIN' 
GREAT DEPRESSION. 
I AM BEARISH.  
AND YOU SHOULD BE BEARISH TOO. 
 
THAT'S MY TRUE BEARISH VIEW. 
THAT'S MY BLUE BEARISH VIEW. 
 
BEARISH IS THE WORD…
