Spanish Banks

When Mr. Kedrosky throws down a challenge, it must be accepted.

spanish banks tweet from pkedrosky

Here's my hastily-whipped-together response (apologies to The Clash):

SPANISH BANKS

Spanish banks have all been downgraded
Moody's rankings have them fit to be tied
Time to put your life savings elsewhere
Fasten your seatbelt you're going for a ride

Rajoy talks but the Germans don't listen
Unemployment's at a record-setting high
Spanish banks sing "Quédate Conmigo"
Baku's over and there's no place to hide

[Chorus]
Spanish banks, yo llevé a mi dinero
no lo voy a devolver
Spanish banks, yo llevé a mi dinero
no lo voy a devolver

Spanish bonds, they're in a heap of trouble
Tremors rocking all across the eurozone
Caveat emptor, argentaria
Mortgage lenders, your cover's been blown

A hundred billion might make a difference
Treat the symptoms, or treat the cause
Spanish banks begging on the streets
I don't have answer, I'm grasping at straws

[Chorus]
Spanish banks, yo llevé a mi dinero
no lo voy a devolver
Spanish banks, yo llevé a mi dinero
no lo voy a devolver

Madrid asks how much longer can this go on
Athens cuts in and says you think you got it bad?
King Juan Carlos greets the First Lady
The trip's cost made some in the public mad

Spanish banks slide into the seashore
Barcelona wants Joan Angel Roman
Spanish tweets are clogging up my cable
The ATM just ate my MasterCharge

[Chorus]
Spanish banks in Andalucia, Mandolina, oh mi corazon
Spanish banks in Granada, oh mi corazon
oh mi corazon x4

In case you're not familiar with the tune:
