The Lyrics

Hey Henry Paulson here's to you!
Hey Henry Paulson,
What’s it like in New York City?
Heard that AIG was coming down,
But now they’re sitting pretty.
Thanks to you.
Man, I could use a bailout too,
I swear it’s true.

Hey Henry Paulson,
Don’t you worry ‘bout explaining,
We’ll just borrow from our grandchildren,
I don’t hear them complaining.
Sleight of hand,
Just in case you need a back up plan-
Invade Iran.

Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
What you do to me.

Hey Henry Paulson,
I know times are getting hard,
And when the housing prices fell
Your friends were hoist by their petard.
Oh, what a swerve.
That we should get what they deserve.
It seems absurd.

Hey Henry Paulson,
I’ve got so much more to say,
But all the banks I couldn’t pay my debt to
Took my words away,

Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me

A trillion bucks seems pretty large,
To put into a great big barge,
Then close our eyes and just give you the key.

You’ll come back in a ragged raft,
With remnants of their criminal acts,
And sell us what they couldn’t dump for free.

Henry I can promise you,
That by the time that you get through,
The USA will never be the same,
And you’re to blame.

Hey Congress People,
Just be good and don’t you listen.
Two months and he’ll be outta here
And you just might be with him, if you do.
You know it all comes down to you.
You can vote however you want to.
Hey Henry Paulson here’s to you,
This one’s for you.

Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
What you do to me.

He's Hen-ery the knave, he is. Worthy target well-skewered.
