External Policy – a song

Posted by shartley13 on August 26, 2010

The lyrics below are to be sung to The Pussycat Dolls’ song Don’t Cha.

Oh, foreign investors

I know you like me (I know you like me)
I know you do (I know you do)
That’s why whenever you invest you look at me
And I know you want me (I know you want me)
To be sustainable (To be sustainable)
And in the back of your mind
You are watching me so carefully

[Chorus]
Dont cha wish you had external stability
Dont cha wish your economy was fit like me
Dont cha, dont cha
Dont cha wish your economy was stabilized like me
Dont cha wish your foreign liabilities were serviced like me
Dont cha, dont cha

Oh government,
you have to control me (you have to control me)
never Leave me alone (never leave me alone)
Cause if it responsible
It just ain’t enough to leave me alone
Let’s keep me sustainable (Let’s keep me sustainable)
to keep the FDI (to keep the FDI)
See, I know you care
you don’t want depreciation

[Chorus]
Dont cha wish you had external stability
Dont cha wish your economy was fit like me
Dont cha, dont cha
Dont cha wish your economy was stabilized like me
Dont cha wish your foreign liabilities were serviced like me
Dont cha, dont cha

I  know foreign liabilities
they need to be serviced
keep them low and
sustained
And it will be fine
I aint lying
As long as its sustained [2x]

See, I know you love her (See, I know you love her)
I understand (I understand)
But you need to control the size of the CAD
If you were my own man
Maybe next lifetime (maybe next lifetime)
Possibly (possibly)
Until then, you need to keep it low

[Chorus]
Dont cha wish you had external stability
Dont cha wish your economy was fit like me
Dont cha, dont cha
Dont cha wish your economy was stabilised like me
Dont cha wish your foreign libilities were serviced like me
Dont cha, dont cha
