The Lyrics

Just when we thought corporate scandals were over, a new one blew up recently over the large perks being paid by General Electric to its retired CEO, Jack Welch. Also in the news was the indictment of the former CEO of Tyco for looting the company for his own profit. Are these guys overpaid? Perhaps.
These guys, paid like this
These guys, these guys, is something amiss?
They're paid like this
These guys, these guys, is something amiss?

Hey boy, whatcha payin' for
Have you paid for it all before
We're mad, and we will not let it be
You will see
How come you are the way you are
Drivin' your big fancy car
Watching the sports teams from up far, have you become

Somebody else, like everyone else
You're taking the flak, now you can't relax
We all just wanna puke, you look like a fool to me
Tell me

Why are you, all the rich fat cats so overpa-aid
We see the way you're acting and you're making us all so-oh frustrated
No shame this, you
Free tickets, to the Knicks, the Yankees
And that is what you get, and your firms turned into
Bankruptcy 'cause the world found out all your profits were fa-ake
No no no

Stocks plunge, losses unannounced
Jack Welch, he is somethin' else
Soon his divorce will be so nasty
A sight to see
Where is the cash that they stole
Paid for all their preppy clothes
We know they're not fooling anyone
'Cause we're not dumb

Somebody else, like everyone else
Taking the flak, now you can't relax
We just wanna puke, you look like a fool to me
Tell me

Why are you, all the rich fat cats so overpa-aid
We see the way you're acting and you're making us all so-oh frustrated
No shame this, you
Free tickets, to the Knicks, the Yankees
And that is what you get, and your firms turned into
Bankruptcy 'cause the world found out all your profits were fa-ake
No no no

Hey boy, whatcha payin' for
Have you paid for it all before
We're mad, and we will not let it be
You will see

Somebody else, like everyone else
You're taking the flak, now you can't relax
We all just wanna puke, you look like a fool to me
Tell me

Why are you, all the rich fat cats so overpa-aid
We see the way you're acting and you're making us all so-oh frustrated
No shame this, you
Free tickets, to the Knicks, the Yankees
And that is what you get, and your firms turned into
Bankruptcy 'cause the world found out all your profits were fa-ake
No no no

Why are you, all the rich fat cats so overpa-aid
We see the way you're acting and you're making us all so-oh frustrated
No shame this, you
Free tickets, to the Knicks, the Yankees
And that is what you get, and your firms turned into
Bankruptcy 'cause the world found out all your profits were fa-ake
No no no
