​Obama Budget Plan

This song is by Ray Stevens and appears on the album Spirit of '76 (2011).

Original video
Well I told my wife we had to get control
Of the finances in our household
We had to sit down and make a budget we could live by.

I said we'll list our incomes and all our bills,
So get the bills, honey, if you will,
She got 'em and stacked 'em on the table three piles high.

Now, I work two jobs and the wife cleans homes,
Our daughter babysits, our son mows lawns,
But that budget wouldn't balance no matter how we tried.

So I said, let's do what the government does
It works for them it might work for us,
So I forgot my morals and ethics and swallowed my pride.

We took out every credit card we could get
And loaded them up with the maximum debt
Borrowed from friends and family, even took out loans overseas.

I borrowed at work, took credit at the store
Till folks just wouldn't give us credit any more,
And I said, 'Honey, the next step is clear to me'

Now we got money
Obama money
Yeah we're printin' it in the basement just as fast as we can.
We're makin' money
Obama money
Yeah we're livin' the Obama budget plan.

Well, we didn't use the money to reduce our debt
There was a whole bunch of thing we still wanted to get,
Now that we had more money than ever before.
So we built a deck and a patio, put in a pool, bought a second home,
Took all of our friends on vacation to Costa del Sol.

Now we got money
Obama money
Yeah we're printin' it in the basement just as fast as we can.
We're makin' money
Obama money
Yeah we're livin' the Obama budget plan.

Budget ceiling, credit score
Don't worry 'bout that I'll just print more of that money ...

Now we got money
Obama money
Yeah we're printin' it in the basement just as fast as we can.
We're makin' money
Obama money
Yeah we're livin' the Obama budget plan.
