Greek Debt Crisis: ♪ Let's call the whole thing off ♫

The swashbuckling bravado that the new far-left Greek government has so far exhibited in Brussels does not seem to be working in its favor. Both the new Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and the finance minister Yiannis Varoufakis have swaggered into meetings with an insistence on semantics rather and red lines rather than substance and a willingness for compromise, singing this ditty:

You say bailout and I say way out You say troika and I say perestroika Bailout, way out, Troika, Perestroika Let's call the whole thing off. You like austerity and I like prosperity You like etiology and I like ideology Austerity, prosperity, Etiology, ideology. Let's call the whole thing off.

But oh, if we call the whole thing off then we must part And oh, if we ever part, then that might break my bank.

I say refinance, you stare askance I say haircut, you say "that's bare smut"

Refinance, askance, Haircut, bare smut Let's call the whole thing off. You'd like an extension, I a suspension

You a "mnimonium", I'd rather drink conium Extension, suspension, mnimonium, conium Let's call the whole thing off.

But oh, if we call the whole thing off then we must part And oh, if we ever part, then that might break my bank.
