The Lyrics

A parodiacal poke at that shyster Bernie Madoff.....I mean, come on.......with a name like Made-off how could anybody trust this crook

Ponzi Scheme Shyster
Dear Sir or Madam I'm a dirty crook
I couldn't make enough money going by the book
I'm Bernie Madoff and I'm so ashamed
Made off with 50 billion like it was a game
'Cause I'm a shyster......PONZI SCHEME SHYSTER

It's a dirty story of an evil plan
Took me years to cook up and now I'm in the can
Got the loot from Spielberg, Kevin Bacon too
Even stole some dough from good 'ole "Dr.Doom"
'Cause I'm a shyster......A PONZI SCHEME SHYSTER

If you'll only trust me and the timings right
I can steal a million from you overnight
If you call my office you won't catch me there
I will be in jail for a thousand years
'Cause I'm a shyster.......A PONZI SCHEME SHYSTER

An illegal pyramid is what I did
And when they found me out they really blew their lid
Got investors pissed and all the Judges too
I'm an evil dude and now I'm really screwed
'Cause I'm a shyster.......PONZI SCHEME SHYSTER
Ponzi Scheme Shyster

R. Clausnitzer/J. Kiernan

Funny poke at a'hole-y deserving target... love the shyster-writer homage... one nit pick... in the second to last stanza, should 'there' and 'years' be a rhyming couplet?

555 - there can never be enough Bernie tributes. I saw one article that said that some of the mafia had invested with him - he may to pay the price on that rip-off.
