Europe to the left of me, China to the right….

[Original song above — I lack the talent and mad skillz to do a parody recording myself]

Well I don’t know how I’ll keep my career
I got the feeling that I’m out on my rear
I’m so scared that my pension is gone
And my furniture is out on the lawn
Europe to the left of me, China to the right
Here I am, stuck in the middle with you.

Yes I’m stuck in the middle with you
And I’m wondering what the hell is you do
Flyin’ Air Force One all over the place
Raisin’ money for your 20-12 race
Teleprompters to the left of you,
‘Prompters to the right
Here I am, stuck in the middle with you. 

Well you started out with nothing
And you’re proud that you’re a self-made man
And your lobbyists come callin’
Slap you on the back and say ‘Please, please.’ 

Well, the US dollar’s gone in the tank
Doesn’t matter, we’ve got none at the bank
Greece is pulling Europe over the falls
And Beijing’s ’bout to hit their own walls
Europe to the left of us, China to the right
Here we are, stuck in the middle with you. 

Well you won in 20-08
And you’ve made a real mess of things since
Now the voters will come callin’
Look you in the face and say ‘Leave, please.’ 

Well, our country now is trillions in hock
It gets worse with every tick of the clock
The economy is set to collapse
And you’re mulliganing out on the grass
Europe to the left of us, China to the right
Here we are, stuck in the middle with you. 
(Yes we’re) stuck in the middle with you
Stuck in the middle with you
(Here we are) stuck in the middle with you.

(with apologies to the late, great Gerry Rafferty)
