Debt bomb, debt bomb!

Satyryczny występ Dominica Frisby pt. "Debt Bomb" będącym przeróbką przeboju Toma Jonesa "Sex Bomb" jest kolejną już próbą przedstawienia sytuacji ekonomicznej za pomocą żartobliwych teledysków. Tym razem ten satyryk i publicysta ekonomiczny  równocześnie przypomina nam o grożącej nam wielkiej deficytowej bombie.







 Tekst utworu

Debt Bomb
(Lyrics by Dominic Frisby)

Aw, aw baby, yeah, ooh yeah, huh, listen to this
Mortgages, cars, consumer shite
Government spending all through the night
Pensions and healthcare and welfare rights
Education , wars to fight
Ooh, I love a good war to fight
Run up a deficit, ignore the facts
Blame someone else, put up tax
I can’t deny we had a crack
But now we gotta pay it back



Debt bomb, debt bomb, you’re a debt bomb uh hu
The addiction to credit just goes on and on and on – give it to me
Debt bomb, debt bomb, you’re a debt bomb
A bail-out ooh you’re turn me on
You know what you’re doing to me don’t you. ha ha,
I know you do
If you can’t afford it don’t be ill at ease – no
Spend it anyway, you’ve got voters to appease
Take the prudent savers and just give them a squeeze
That’s the economics of Keynes
Quantitative easing, zero interest rates
Steal from the future, hide the bad mistakes
We gotta keep those asset prices high
Don’t matter if the credit’s dry

Debt bomb, debt bomb, you’re a debt bomb uh hu
Try to pay the debt off with inflation
Debt bomb, debt bomb, you’re a debt bomb
Malinvestment ooh you’re turn me on
A boom brought about by credit will always bust
You’ve then got two choices, decide you must
Abandon the addiction, the credit lust
Or the currency collapses , it just turns to worthless dust

Debt bomb, debt bomb, you’re a debt bomb uh hu
Destroy the country’s money, anything to carry on
Debt bomb, debt bomb, you’re a debt bomb
Bubbles ooh you’re turn me on
