Buzz Ballad: It's Beginning to Look Like a Recession

---apologies to Meredith Wilson and "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas"

It's beginning to look like a recession

Everywhere you go

Take a good look at the home sales

Mortgage applicants fail

To qualify though interest rates are low

It's beginning to look like a recession

High-priced energy

But the best indicator you'll see

Is now living frugally

Off of your EBT

Your employer cut hours 'cause Obamacare lowers

And he'd rather pay the fine

You've cut luxuries like going to movies

Or taking the family to dine

And if you lose your job you can't find another

Though it's not for lack of tryin'

It's beginning to look like a recession

The Dow's begun to tank

But please spare me all your tears

If you voted for four more years

You've yourself to thank
