The Lyrics

Here's the original: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KYDOWGlPDTU
This is so confusing
We don't know the cost
When the ones on top
Make us pay all their loss

Just because they're hurting
Doesn't mean alert
Doesn't mean they didn't get what they deserve
No cause to reimburse

But now their loss
Passed onto us as a public cost
Even though the Senate bill was blocked
Oh and we're... just filling up the bailout trough

If I had just one wish
And a magic wand
I'd send every one
Of these Wall Street scum
Into the sun

So they'd be lost
Wouldn't have to pay off all their costs
And then Congress would have no payoffs
Oh and we'll... just wait until the bailouts stop
Oh then... just maybe all the lies would stop...

Oh and we're... just filling up the bailout trough
Oh I'm... just waiting for the lies to stop

Thanks, LilCongress and Jason... Apparently, I was attacked with 1s from either a Wall Street banker or a Detroit fan.

Astute commentary, mac....the same crap's happening here in the UK, with banks being propped up by tax money. Well done! 555

Thanks, Kristof. I didn't know they were doing it over there too. Sorry to hear that... :(
