Greek Debt Song #NoJusticeGr

Μας πήραν χαμπάρι. Τέλος.



Oh yes, the Greeks gave us Pythagoras, and Euclid, and Plato, and other wondrous stuff
But balancing their national 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 Germany, and Germany, and Germany, to get a bailout loan

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"

The budget problem of the Greeks, of the Greeks, of the Greeks, are a European pain
I 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

Let’s hear a little bouzouki!
[Instrumental]

And when the markets, get into a funk
They won't buy your paper, if it's rated "junk"

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

From Merle Hazard, to listeners in Greece: I am a very sincere admirer of the Greek nation. I envy the richness of your cultural tradition, and am an admirer of Plato, Aristotle, Euclid, Pythagoras and, especially now, Aristophanes. My song about the Greek debt issue is directed only at financial matters. It is not directed at the people or culture of Greece or Crete. Everything in the song, and the introduction, is a satire; do not take at face value.

Special message from Merle Hazard to the Greek audience. Μήνυμα του Merle Hazard για το ελληνικό κοινό: Το βίντεο αυτό είναι χιουμοριστικό. ‘Εχω γράψει παρόμοια κείμενα για τα οικονομικά προβλήματα της χώρας μου, των ΗΠΑ. Μπορείτε να βρείτε περισσότερες πληροφορίες στα ελληνικά για τη μουσική και τις καλλιτεχνικές μου προθέσεις στο λινκ κάτω από το βίντεο.
