EDITOR’S NOTE: Last month, we featured a week-long series of songs by our country crooning friend Merle Hazard about the Euro-debt crisis: Spain, Ireland, Italy and Germany, and an encore of the infamous Greek Debt song. We invited you to submit your own lyrics about countries facing economic woe. The promised prize was a rendition of the winning song by Mr. Hazard himself.
Without further ado, here’s Merle’s interpretation of the winning entry: “Feelin’ Lousy,” by Davidthewriter sung to the Simon and Garfunkel tune, “Feelin’ Groovy.”
We would also like to give an honorable mention to the “Cathedral” lyrics, submitted by slavador. You can view that submission here.
