What’s this we hear of credit crunch?The press? They are a lovely bunch.
When residential times are bad,
There is no reason to be sad.
Do not let your biz expire,
Commercial clients are what you require.

We’ll back you up and give you clout.
If the deal can be done,
It is to us that you must come.
