Words ought to be a little wild, for they are the assault of thoughts on the unthinking

Perishtroika - Mario's song


And I would do anything for EU, I'd run right into BuBa and back
I would do anything for EU, I'll never listen to Jens and that's a fact
But I'll never forget the way you voted right now, oh no, no way
And I would do anything for EU, but I won't do that, I won't do that


Anything for EU, oh I would do anything for EU
I would do anything for EU, but I won't do that, no I won't do that


Some days markets don't seem pleased, and some days they sell off hard
Some days bounces don't come at all, and these are the days that never end
Some nights you're saving Ire, and some nights you're rolling dice
Some nights you're like “nothing I've done before matters or will again”


Maybe I'm crazy, but it's crazy and it's true
I know I can save you, no one else can save you now but me
As long as the investors are turning, as long as the banks are burning
As long as your fears are coming true, you better believe it


But I'll never forgive myself if I don’t force you to go my way tonight
And I would do anything for EU, oh I would do anything for EU
Oh I would do anything for EU, but I won't do that, no I won't do that


I would do anything for EU, QE you've been dreaming of 
But I just won't do that
 
Some days I pray for reform, and some days I pray you’d acquiesce
Some days I just pray to Ben and roll the dice


Maybe I'm a banker and that's all I'm qualified to be
There's just one and only, the one and only central banker you need
As long as the investors are turning, as long as the banks are burning
As long as your fears are coming true, you better believe it


That I would do anything for EU, and you know it's OMT and that's a fact
I would do anything for EU, with renegotiation there'll never be no turning back


But I'll never monetise better than I do your debt, so long, so long
And I would do anything for EU, oh I would do anything for EU 
I would do anything for EU, but I won't do that, no no no I won't do that


I would do anything for EU, QE you've been dreaming of
But I just won't do that


Will you raise the T-bill ceiling, will you take collateral down?
Will you get me out of debt without a frown?
Will you make it all a little less stringent?
I can do that, I can do that


Will you cater to every fantasy I got?
Will ya hose me down with QE, if yields get too hot?
Will you take monetisation places I've never known?
I can do that, oh oh now, I can do that


I know the territory, I've been around
It'll all turn to dust and we'll all fall down
And sooner or later, you'll be advocating austerity all around

I won't do that, no I won't do that

 
Anything for EU, oh I would do anything for EU
I would do anything for EU, but I won't do that
