The Ballad of Wall Street (We're screwed!)

If this were'nt so dire...it would be hilarious! Heaven help us now!

 The Ballad of Wall Street

(We’re Screwed!)

 

All the king’s horses

And all the king's men

Can't put Wall Street

Together again!

So greedy were they

Those big fat cats

Now scurrying around

Like drowning rats

They took your money

Without a thought

Though you couldn't afford

The house you bought

They said "don't worry

You'll be fine,

Just sign your name

On the dotted line!"

Now they are crying

And singing the blues

Cause the time has come

For paying their dues

 

Now greedy bankers

Are asking US

To bail them out

Without a fuss!

This gang of thieves

Is really shrewed

So Joe the taxpayer

Once again is SCREWED!

Nice. My favorite line(s)?

They took your money
Without a thought
Though you couldn't afford
The house you bought
They said "don't worry
You'll be fine,
Just sign your name
On the dotted line!"

Excellent.
