Mixed Doubles


Two who once shared a harmony,
Now together
Sharing grief!

It's the mix of trouble.
Because of the economy.

Who thought a bottom would fall out,
From under two with a future.
Who thought things from them would be removed
After having fantasies approved.
With a signing on a dotted line!
Good credit with timely payments
IF payments made were done on time.

Mixed doubles befuddled in economic trouble.
On a field playing with others.
Sharing grief with hopes of getting financial relief.

Two who once shared a harmony,
Now together
Sharing grief!

It's the mix of trouble.
Because of the economy.

Mixed doubles befuddled in economic trouble.
On a field playing with others.
Sharing grief with hopes of getting financial relief.

Who thought a bottom would fall out,
From under two with a future.
Who thought things from them would be removed
After having fantasies approved.

Mixed doubles befuddled in economic trouble.
With a signing on a dotted line!
Good credit with timely payments
IF payments made were done on time.
