Tennessee Ernie Ford, Rewritten by Obozo

I haven't quite figured out how to re-write the lyrics, but "Sixteen Tons" is a good start.

Sixteen tons, wha' d' ya get?
Another day older and deeper in debt
St Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't go
I owe my soul to the Company Store.

Sixteen Trillion doesn't scan well.  And Tennessee Ernie didn't mention that his chilluns, their chilluns, and THEIR chilluns would also 'owe their souls' to......whomever.

Ryan's Roadmap for America balances the 2064. Finally we'll be able to start paying off the debt.

Can'cha see we need a trillion, shore?
We're government, gov'ment...and gov'ment needs more.
Take your freedom liberties and stick 'em onna shelf,
...'comin' to take your stuff to enrich'en myself.
