Crash Dance 

[On the Debt Ceiling & the Crisis]

To "Flashdance... What a Feeling"

(Words by Keith Forsey and Irene Cara

Music by Giorgio Moroder)

Parody Lyrics by Marcy Shaffer

Arranged by Greg Hilfman

IT'S BEEN A KILLER.
HOW THE U.S. RESPONDS.
TO THE SHAMBLES 
OF GAMBLES
THAT CAN'T BE SOLD.
WITH THE CHILL OF CASE-SHILLER.
AND THE BONDS OF OUR BONDS.
IN A JAM.
FACING SCRAMBLES TO GOLD.
 
FOR THIS THREAT, THEY ARE BETTING.
THERE'S A NET THEY CAN SET.
IT'S THEIR PET TOURNIQUET.
IT IS:
DEBT!
 
WHAT A CEILING!
MERCANTILING.
NOW SENDS EVERY RISK
TO THE U.S. FISC. 
WE LEARN.
AFTER TRILLIONS.
ARE THERE ZILLIONS?
SINCE WE MAKE NO GOODS.
COULD A BRETTON WOODS
RETURN?
 
EVERY CLEVER ENDEAVOR.
THAT THE STREET DID BEGET.
CAN'T DE-LEVER IT YET. 
WITHOUT:
DEBT!
 
WHAT A CEILING!
WHEN YOU'RE DEALING
WITH RECAPPING BANKS.
WHO ARE CLAPPING: "THANKS, THAT'S NICE."
SPIKE THE PANIC.
LIKE THE TITANIC.
ONCE YOU'VE STRUCK THE ICE.
YOU ARE STUCK TO PAY THE PRICE.
 
WHAT A CEILING!
 
WHAT A CEILING!
(WHAT SCHMUCK WOULD BE SHOPPING HERE?)
WHEN YOU'RE KNEELING.
(THE BUCK MAY BE STOPPING HERE.)
ONCE A SUPERPOWER, 
A SUPER KOWTOWER NOW.
NOT APPEALING.
(WE TRIED TO HAVE IT ALL.)
AND REVEALING.
(ANOTHER PREDATOR'S BALL.)
HARK, IT'S MARKETS SEIZE LIKE THE JAPANESE, 
OH WOW…

WHAT A CEILING!
