Wall Street Pirates

We're the Wall Street pirates.

We're the mad captains of finance.

Heave ho, me buccos, heave ho!

How we love to pillage

your entire global village!

Heave ho, me buccos, heave ho, heave ho!

We dig deep and keep digging

into the taxpayers' pockets.

Heave ho, bucks, you know you can do it!

We do the heavy lifting

of the dollars from the wallets.

Heave ho, bucks, put your backs into it, heave ho!

We're the Wall Street pirates.

We're the bad captains of finance.

Ahoy, me matees, ahoy!

X, it marks the spot where

we collected on forclosures.

Ahoy, me matees, ahoy, ahoy!

We've got a tropical island

where we hide our buried treasure.

Ahoy, mates, how your gold, it glitters!

The IRS can't find it

in our offshore tax shelter.

Ahoy, mates, they can't touch your silver, ahoy!

We're the Wall Street pirates.

We're the captains of mad finance.

Yo ho, me hearties, yo ho!

We might cut your throat

with a twenty-thousand dollar bank note!

Yo ho, me hearties, yo ho, yo ho!

This job, it take real talent,

it's not all hearts and flowers.

Yo ho, hearts, how you handle the hardships!

You might need a waste basket

that costs fourteen thousand dollars.

Yo ho, hearts, how you handle your garbage, yo ho!

We're the Wall Street pirates.

We're the captains of bad finance.

Drink up, salty dogs, drink up!

When we hoist our Jolly Rodger

we want seven hundred billion dollars!

Drink up, salty dogs, drink up, drink up!

That's high-class rum we're drinking

as we toast Bloody Hands Greenspan!

Drink up, dogs, and tell yourself you earned it!

If our corporate ship starts sinking

we'll hit the fools for one more bail-out.

Drink up, dogs, it's not your money you're burning, drink up!

We're the Wall Street pirates.

We're the mad captains of bad finance.

Ding dong, me laddies, ding dong!

Where was the Dow at the closing bell?

We don't care because we all did real well!

Ding dong, me laddies, ding dong, ding dong!
