The Lyrics

on the t.v. in front of me
don't mean nothin. I really don't mind
insider trades on the market
I can't say nothing, but this chick offends me
can't believe just how far she'd gone
how far she's gone, we've all been slimed
like a movie by oliver stone
at the grand jury she gave them a line

martha's stock isn't rising
not comin up, now she's doin time
martha's stock isn't rising
insider trading in imclone aint right

left us all stock losing
cell phone call went through the air
imclone executive calling
"the drug's not approved, get your cash out of there"

martha's stock isn't rising
not comin up, now she's doin time
martha's stock isn't rising
insider trading in imclone aint right

lie lie lie lie lie lie lie lie lie lie

there's bad stock decisions behind me
stocks that went bad, some burning bright
may the f.b.i. fine me
lord, put this bitch away tonight


lie lie lie lie lie lie lie lie lie lie


I see you martha in the garden
your garden can't help you disguise
an example for our children
a good thing it's not every night
may you feel the cuffs around you
as you feel the law win this time
your greedy life proves to me
insider trading has cost you this time

time of blackness and sorrow
take the loss. take the years
now your life has some sadness
lord have mercy, Martha's here
your stock is now a shadow
your smugness just fills my heart with spite
a cell is home, hope there's loneliness
I lost imclone, I hope you get life..

martha's stock isn't rising
not comin up, now she's doin time
martha's stock isn't rising
insider trading in imclone aint right

lie lie lie lie lie lie lie lie lie lie
