It’s Time for Bankruptcy Songs

Posted on Sunday (November 15, 2009) at 11:45 pm to Bankruptcy Humour

Bankruptcy Song Contest
 Written by Craig D. Robins, Esq.
 
My friend, Steven Horowitz, the originator of the Bankruptcy Bill and BAPCPA Man bankruptcy comic strips, recently announced a bankruptcy song contest.
 
Although practicing bankruptcy is usually serious business, it’s still fun to make light of its humorous aspects.
 
I’m considering entering the song contest.  In the meantime, I will post some already-written bankruptcy songs. 
 
Here is one by Michael Silverstein, who was previously a senior editor with Bloomberg Financial News.  He wrote this to make light of how consumers were hurrying to file their bankruptcy petitions before the law changed in 2005.
 

The Bankruptcy Song
(To be sung to the tune of
“My Bonnie Lies Over The Ocean”)

 
To bankruptcy court I am fleeing,
This cop out is calling to me,
I’ve spoken to Irv my accountant,
He says it’s my best strategy.
 
  Bankrupt, bankrupt,
There’s creditors at my front door,
My door;
Need a,
Court date,
Before Congress changes the law.
 
The stock market took down my savings,
It’s years since I got my last raise,
My bills keep on growing like fungus,
There’s just one way out of this maze.
 
Bankrupt, bankrupt,
There’s creditors at my front door,
My door;
Need a,
Court date,
Before Congress changes the law.
 
I’m woefully overextended,
When the phone rings I shake and I twitch,
The gap twixt my debts and my assets,
Makes the Grand Canyon look like a ditch.
 
Bankrupt, bankrupt,
There’s creditors at my front door,
My door;
Need a,
Court date,
Before Congress changes the law.
