Somebody’s Cookin’ Them Books

       © 2012. Edward D. Phillips

 The stock market’s up 100 percent
Somebody’s cookin’ them books.
Unemployment’s fallin’ in a big descent
Somebody’s cookin’ them books.
Our wealth is up 11 trillion bucks
Somebody’s cookin’ them books.
Grandpa’s wearin’ a brand new tux
Somebody’s cookin’ them books.
 
[Chorus] 
Yippie-i-o-ki-yippie-i-a
Obama’s here to save the day.
Yippie-i-o-ki-yippie-i-a
He’s gonna cook them books away..
 
30 million new folks on the health care rolls
Somebody’s cookin’ them books.
Bin Laden’s deader'n ol' King Cole
Somebody’s cookin’ them books.
Waterboardin’s out, the Iraq war’s history
Somebody’s cookin’ them books.
Gaddafi’s gone an’ that’s no mystery
Somebody’s cookin’ them books.
 
[Chorus]
 
The cars are rollin’ from Detroit City
Somebody’s cookin’ them books.
The Tea Party’s cryin’ and that’s a pity
Somebody’s cookin’ them books.
Mitt Romney’s movin’ more cash offshore
Somebody’s cookin’ them books.
Obama’s dancin' on the ballroom floor
Somebody’s cookin’ them books.

 [Chorus]

This is good for a chuckle. Very creative.

I'm singing right along with you! While we're talking about cooking books. The last Romney 1040, greatly delayed, was conveniently doctored by his tax attorneys to show that he paid only 14% in taxes, less than his secretary and the average middle-class taxpayer. I reason that the reason it was so late was that he had to file a 1040X to erase the 10% he actually paid, create a deduction for charitable contribution (that he can easily afford) to arrive at the magic number that he wants the public to see (the capital gains tax). How convenient.

By the way, government jobs are real jobs that are needed. These jobs require a good education, pay more than and have better benefits than the low to no skill service jobs with little or no benefits being created by venture capitalists seeking to reduce labor cost and thereby increase profits.
