GREEK DEBT SONG

GREEK DEBT SONG
Lyric by Merle Hazard 
Sing to “Never on Sunday” by Manos Hadjidakis

Verse 1

Oh, yes, the Greeks gave us Pythagoras, and Euclid, and Plato, and other wondrous stuff
But balancing their nation'l budget, their budget, their budget, apparently is tough
They used derivatives from Goldman, from Goldman, from Goldman, expenses to postpone
And had to go to France and Germn'y, and Germ'ny, and Germ'ny, to get a bailout loan


Chorus 1

They borrowed short, at a lower rate
Like the Wall Street brokers, we have grown to hate
And when the markets, get into a funk
They won't buy your paper, if it's rated "junk"


Verse 2

The budget problem of the Greeks, of the Greeks, of the Greeks, are a European pain
We hope it doesn't spread to Portugal, Portugal, Portugal, Italy or Spain
The ECB and IMF, IMF, IMF have applied their expertise
To keep the European Union, from crumbling, from crumbling, just like feta cheese


Verse 3

Some say that Greece may drop the Euro, the Euro, the Euro so their products can compete
And if it still not enough, not enough, not enough, maybe they can sell off Crete
And if it still not enough, not enough, not enough, maybe they can sell off Crete!
