Blown Budget
Instead of retiring some of the national debt, Paul O'Neill says we'll need to increase borrowing
(Sung to the tune of "Low Budget" by The Kinks)
Guest song parody by Daedalus


(As sung by Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neil)

(instrumental intro)

Cuts thought small, and now too steep.
But now finds the costs weren't cheap.
Circumstance has forced our hand.
Must now just cut programs in a blown budget land.
Times are hard, maybe you'll survive.
You just got to learn to economize.

We're on a blown budget.
We're on a blown budget.
Rich aren't hurt, you understand,
You're just a lowly peon in a blown budget land.

Excuse our numbers, they don't quite fit.
You see, made a miscalculation and hurts you a bit.
Spending designed for maximum pain.
Cashflow reduced this tax month but you shouldn't complain.
We'll force rates so high till you can't stand no more.
They're just under three now but soon quite a bit more.

We're on a blown budget. (What did you say?)
We're on a blown budget. (I thought you said that.)
We're on a blown budget.
You're just a lousy peon in a blown budget land.

You're shopping at Wal-Mart and low discount stores.
Dropping your standards, while we steal your drawers.
Fed spending costs, can't reign in our waste.
So you must give up all of your expensive tastes.
You'll soon sing for supper, all going skint.
Rich still smoke their cigars, while you suck polo mints

We're on a blown budget. (What did you say?)
We're on a blown budget (I thought you said that.)
We're on a blown budget.
You're just a poor taxpayer in a blown budget land.
We're on a blown budget.
Blown budget.
Blown budget.

War takes time, time is money.
Money's scarce and that ain't funny.
Millionaires, we'll give them your cash.
You're in blown budget bind where nothing can last.
Money is scarce, there's none to be found.
So don't think we're right if the debt just hangs around.

We're on a blown budget. (What did you say?)
We're on a blown budget. (I thought you said that)
We're on a blown budget.
You're just a poor taxpayer in a blown budget land.

We're on a blown budget.
(Say it again)
Blown budget.
(One more time)
Blown budget.
