Backstop! For a desperate institution
Backstop! A little national insurance
Backstop! It's not a test of our endurance

And if things go wrong

Backstop! Let's tear up this old agreement
Backstop! It’s such a dubious achievement
Backstop! A problem of our own creation

Can’t we get along?
Let’s make-believe this love affair

So do you have to be so haughty?
Backstop! Well, it’s not gonna last forever
Backstop! But if it does,
