Great Parody Two Trillion Tons

There is a good parody of the song 16 Tons first recorded by Merle Travis and later by ‘Tennessee’ Ernie Ford. Thanks to Jenn Sierra for letting me know about the song and that Tex over at Fort Hard Knox had posted on it.

You can listen to the song here

Lyrics:

Obama got elected, now there is no end;
The Democrats wanna tax and spend,
Tax and spend us into bankruptcy,
With a tax-cheat runnin’ our Treasury.

You spend two trillion bucks, and what do you get?
No recovery but deeper in debt.
St. Peter better call me ‘fore it’s too late;
I owe my soul to the welfare state!

Obama is a leftist, as he can’t deny;
‘Govern from the center,’ was a great big lie.
Karl Marx Manifesto is his playbook,
And you and me soon will be on the hook.

You spend two trillion bucks, in unsecured cash;
Soon the dollar will be pure trash.
Our bond holders we have to appease;
We owe our soul to the Red Chinese.

Obama and his people are makin’ a mess,
Bernanke’s fired up the printing press,
Printin’ money that don’t exist,
No wonder America is gettin’ (peeved?)

You spend two trillion bucks,
They ain’t done yet!
Obama and Pelosi are pilin’ up the debt.
I work hard for the money, this I don’t deserve…
We owe our souls to the Federal Reserve!

The thing that makes parodies so great is that they are often quite true.

At least in this case….
