Fiscal Cliff Persuasion (December 3, 2012)

I can’t solve this Fiscal Cliff problem.  What I can do, though, is write a song parody about it.  This one is to the tune of Tommy James and the Shondells’ classic “Crystal Blue Persuasion”….I call it “Fiscal Cliff Persuasion.”

Look over yonder
Crunch time for our nation…
Tax breaks expiring
And sequestration….

But a new day is coming (ooo ooo)
Repubs are a’ changing
Nordquist’s a’ runnin’ (ooo ooo)
Fiscal cliff persuasion

Better get ready
For gives from the right
Revenue is the answer (ooo ooo)
And that’s all right

So don't you give up now (ooh ooh)
So easy to find
Raise rates and close loopholes
Just open your mind

Fiscal cliff persuasion (mmm, mmm)
It’s ne-go-ti-a-tion
Fiscal cliff persuasion
Fiscal cliff persuasion

Maybe tomorrow
Our budget will balance
Far less to borrow
Entitlements less like France

They’ll be…
Strong defense
A wide safety net
Fiscal cliff persuasion, yeah
Fiscal cliff persuasion, aha
Fiscal cliff persuasion, aha
Fiscal cliff persuasion, aha
