Buddy, Can You Spare a Dime?

September 19th, 2008

(click to start)

Once I had a mortgage, an ARM
The rate was just below prime
Once I had a mortgage, that was then
Buddy can you spare a dime?

Once I had a broker, Merrill Lynch
Lehman Brothers, what a time!
Once there was a Bear Sterns and AIG
Buddy can you spare a dime?

Once I had investments, a 401(k)
They were just doing so swell
Once I had a pension, but it went away
Retirement’s gonna be hell

Say, don’t you remember, they said “invest!”
They said “invest” all the time
Now there is recession it’s such a mess
Say buddy, can you spare a dime?

They used to tell me to go buy a house
I didn’t need that much down
That’s when the market was good and high
But now I feel,  like I’ll drown

They used to tell me to I was building some wealth
Invest and you’ll get ahead
Why should I feel so broke
I’d be better off dead

Once I had a Beemer, and an SUV
Guzzled gas all the time
Now it’s just the bus and a bike for me
Can you spare a dime?

Once I had some coffee, Starbuck’s best
The taste was just so sublime
Now I use the cup to beg hard-pressed
Can you spare a dime?

Once I had investments, a 401(k)
They were just doing so swell
Once I had a pension, but it went away
Retirement’s gonna be hell

Say, don`t you remember, they said “invest!”
your money will grow all the time
Now my money’s worthless, I am so depressed
Say buddy, can you spare a dime?
