about

Song 23 of my (theoretically) weekly song project

lyrics

They're every thing you imagined that they would be
Oh and absolutely nothing more
They're out to make money obviously
Absolutely nothing more

How stupid would you have to be?

Oh down on wall street
there's this secret society
Where they dress up the neophytes in drag
And crack jokes about the bailouts

They've got an "exalted council"
They've got "swipes and grand swipes in waiting"
You really couldn't make this shit up
No one would believe you

But on Wall Street
Cliches never get old or tired
"Buy low sell high" "Greed is good"
I win, you lose your neighbourhood

How stupid would you have to be?

You know up on Wall street
They play by different rules
I know it's not a revelation
But we don't talk about it much

Like it's impolite or something
Like there's something in there teeth
A sleeping giant we don't want to wake
Oh just for once can't we have a nice dinner

They crashed the world economy
That's not even an exaggeration
Then they patted themselves on the back and took home
More money than you've ever seen

How stupid would you have to be?
