Chasin’ Down that Global Slide

The financial whiz-kids went wild

“Down a back road
Long, hot summer
A couple kids runnin’ loose and wild
He kissed her
She said mister,
Take an inch and I’ll give you a mile”

There were some attempts to rein them in, but they responded forcefully:

“I ain’t here to do anything half-way
Don’t give a damn what anyone might say
I just wanna free fall for a while”

It was like a bunch of kids riding around on a Saturday night.  But then the G-20 met.

“That rebel moon is shinin’
Those stars burn like diamonds
Hell bent on chasin’ down that crazy slide

It was a good showing for the O-man in his first performance as President on the global stage, and the meeting itself had a decent result.  The Cowboy is most excited about the recommitment to the Doha round.  The markets responded:

“I’ll follow you where you’re leading
To the first sweet taste of freedom
You got me runnin’ baby,
Wild at heart”

Okay, so it’s a bit of a stretch.  But hey, the Cowboy is a sucker for a pretty girl with a mandolin.
