Let’s Sing Along! “Inflation’s Here To Stay”

In a recent interview with Yahoo! Finance Joe Biden’s U.S. Labor Secretary Marty Walsh, formerly the Mayor of Boston, said:

“Aside from inflation, we have a really strong economy.”

Which reminded me of that classic Abraham Lincoln joke:

“Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the play?”

On the same day Marty Walsh told MSNBC:

“I think for the short term inflation we’re here to see it stay.”

Which got me to thinking…let’s all sing a song about Inflation!

Inflation’s Here to Stay
(with apologies to George & Ira Gershwin, and “Love is Here to Stay”)

The more I learn of Liberals
The more I comprehend
Their world and all their capers
And how it all will end
Nothing seems to be lasting
That’s clearly plain to see
But we’ve got something permanent
In this new economy

It’s very clear
Inflation’s here to stay
Not for a year
But every single day
The internet and the cellphone
And the freedoms that we know
May just be passing fancies
And in time may go!

Biden and Rising Prices

But, oh it’s clear
Inflation’s here to stay
Together we’re
All going broke today
This time the dollar will tumble
The markets will crumble
And all our wealth decay
‘Cuz inflation’s here to stay

Which do You Prefer? Capitalism or Socialism?

FYI: “Love Is Here to Stay” was the last musical piece George Gershwin completed before his death on July 11, 1937 at the age of 38. George’s brother Ira Gershwin wrote the lyrics after George’s death as a tribute to his brother’s passing.

Added bonus: Hear the original version in two classic styles!

Frank Sinatra – 1956 Billie Holliday – 1957
