Hey Buddy can you spare a dime…..

Economist’s, the unwritten Brain Trust’s of the World.

Most are inept, all are un-experienced as opposed to inexperienced…

They make the rules, we play the games…

Obama, Bush, Clinton, Bush, …does it matter…

They listen to the Economist’s, they play their games…

Wall Street, The Banker’s, The Investor’s, Giants all deferring to the Economist’s…

Our Congress, our Senate… starry eyed and mouths open…

Hey Buddy can you spare a dime….

Why do Economists use a decimal point in thier predictions?

To prove that they have a sense of humor!

Most of thier predictions are only 10% correct!

The original song was "Hey Buddy, Can You Spare A Dime?" and was sung by, surprisingly enough, Bing Crosby. It came out in the '30s, of course and I have it on a cassette tape titled "Songs From The Depression".

I think the title was "Hey Brother Can You Spare a Dime" I have a 78 with Bing singing the song and an LP with either Pete Seeger or Woodie Guthrie singing the song.

"They used to tell me I was building a dream, and so I followed the mob,

"When there was earth to plow, or guns to bear, I was always there right on the job.

"They used to tell me I was building a dream, with peace and glory ahead,

"Why should I be standing in line, just waiting for bread?

"Once I built a railroad, I made it run, made it race against time.

"Once I built a railroad; now it's done. Brother, can you spare a dime?

"Once I built a tower, up to the sun, brick and rivet and lime;

"Once I built a tower, now it's done. Brother, can you spare a dime?

"Once in khaki suits, gee we looked swell,

"Full of that Yankee Doodly Dum,

"Half a million boots went slogging through Hell,

"And I was the kid with the drum!

"Say, don't you remember, they called me Al; it was Al all the time.

"Why don't you remember, I'm your pal? Buddy, can you spare a dime?"
