I will regress

At first I was afraid
I was petrified
I kept thinking I could never write
With Baldwin by my side
But then I spent so many nights
Just looking at his famous wall
And I grew strong
And I learned Stolper-Samuelson

And so I'm back
To join the rats
I juts walk in to find them there
With Wyplosz' book around their tails
I should have learned that Dornbush model
I should have passed that open macro
If I had known that in the short run
Exchange rates do overshoot

Oh now go! Outside Rigot
Don't turn around now
You can't stand stata anymore
Weren't you the one who tried to estimate demands
with bad regressions
You'd think it all come out just fine

Oh no! All wrong!
XTABOND
As long as Jaya is around
I know I'll do just fine
I've got all my output saved
I've got all of Cuddy's notes
And I'll regress
I will regress

It took all the strength I had
Just not to fail his course
Kept trying hard to solve
Multiple equilibria
And Djajic Oh so many times
Just teaching Krugman to the class
Inspiration
Verdier and Tille are here for that
Big Push or Trap
And Central Banks
I'm not afraid of all that crap
You keep on feeding me
and so you feel like dropping out
and just expect to find a job
But now you're running out of money
You better finish that mémoire

Oh no! All wrong!
XTABOND
As long as Jaya is around
I know I'll do just fine
I've got all my output saved
I've got all of Cuddy's notes
And I'll regress
I will regress
