A parody of the Marvin Gaye song "Sexual Healing".
New lyrics by Greg Swartzentruber and Todd Chappelle


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 ...
