The Lyrics

There’s a team a Face-
book, an inept and slimy place
that just now schlepped out with Morgan Stanley
an IPO mendaciously—they kept
secrets from almost all.

It was just another day
of doing things the Facebook way:
your data they’re prepared to share,
but theirs they’re unlikely to bare. From sight
hide, hide. . . .

Fawnin’, they’re road-show fawnin’
while they are connin’. . .
jacked off again.

But their cover’s blown—
most buyers clipped; we should have known
Facebook would rip us off both left and right;
naught but a data-mining site to gyp. . .
steal, sell; steal, sell; steal, sell.

Connin’, they’re road-show connin’—
screwed, those who’ve gone in,
there’s no amends.

Bought in, millions have bought in,
but the ill-gotten
gains go to “friends.”

We’ve just seen from Face-
book an adeptly slimy place-
ment that ain’t leapt in price. . .a tankin’ spree—
with mendacious Morgan Stanley, they kept
secrets from almost all.

Connin’, for years they’re connin’
those who have gone in
to find their friends

Robbin’, data they’re robbin’
and for fees fobbin’
it off on “friends.”
