Track Name: Fiscal Cliff
Fiscal Cliff you know the time has come
And it won't be sparing anyone,
You'll see .... You'll see ...
Congress argues over every dime
You know those boys are running out of time
It's true ... It's true ...

So vote again, both sides want to fight
The left can't stand the right
I hope they see the light

Will the left and right negotiate
Or will they leave it to the head of state
To say ... You'll pay ...
Fiscal cliff, now don't you play with fire
Should they let the Bush tax cuts expire
I say ... no way ...

So vote again, it's all over the news
The reds against the blues
We need more revenue
So vote again, both sides want to fight
The left can't stand the right
I hope they see the light

Fiscal Cliff you know the time has come
The First of January won't be fun,
You'll see .... You'll see ...
Track Name: Debt Limit Ceiling
Baby, we owe billions to the Chinese
Got us on our knees
And baby, our debt is like a fire
It's growing higher and higher

And when we hit that ceiling, that ol' debt-limit ceiling
Debt limit ceiling, baby
We're running out of time, soon we can't cross that line
Debt limit ceiling baby, is coming up
Debt limit ceiling is something that's bad for us

And when our deficit is multiplyin'
And when our borrowing ability is leavin' us
Well it's a fiscal drug you're dealing
When you say that we can surely raise that debt limit ceiling

Get up, get up, get up - won't be bouncin' checks
Stand up, stand up, stand up - it's better than sex

Baby, we can't stop our spending And it ain't ending
Baby, we might be capsizin' And our debt's risin' and risin'

So we'll just raise that ceiling, that ol' debt-limit ceiling
Debt limit ceiling is good for us
Makes us all feel fine, and it's such a rush
Buys us all more time, and it's good for us
Debt limit ceiling, baby ...
