Cash for stimulus? This isn't funny.

A billion here, a billion there

We're talking about real money

For an economy that might be beyond repair.

Who knows? It might all go wrong

Because they're making it up as they go along.

Cash to bail out our failing banks

A trillion here, a trillion there.

Geithner was just shooting blanks

Which just raised a lot of hot air.

The chances for success are not that strong

Because they're making it up as they go along.

If it doesn't work it's easy to see

We'll find ourselves in deep kim chee.
