My Favourite Greek Things

Fresh from the resounding success of "How do we solve a problem like Mario", lyricist-extraordinaire Brian Lucey has a new song for the delectation of those interested in all matters Greek.
Mario's Favourite Things

Haircuts on Greek bonds and ELA exploding,
LTROs and OMTs, liquidity flowing,
Wondering which of the lefties will win,
These are a few of my favourite things.

Deposits eroding and capital oozing,
Taxes evading and cronies a-schmoozing,
Yanis going cheap via German wings,
These are a few of my favourite things.

13-month salaries and no privatisation,
Structural reforms that are stuck at the station,
Coming the Troika - what will it bring?
These are a few of my favourite things.

When The Dawn comes,
When Putin rings,
When I'm feeling sad,
I simply remember my favourite things
And then I don't feel so bad. 
But of course, this is a song.... so it has to be sung, doesn't it? Fortunately yours truly has the wherewithal....

Here is my rendition. Enjoy.


  1. Bravo! Bravo! More! More!
    More sung economics from our Diva, please

  2. Great performance. Bravo!

  3. It's a hit - come down to Poco Loco and perform it tonight !!

  4. Most accomplished. It should be the Band Aid of our times.

  5. Standing ovation! :)
