The Lyrics

The original song is here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4WeuX7eZs3k
Oh well, I might swipe and try to be clever, smuggle bonds
With money orders, cards well, I’ll show that I confound
My Swiss account I’m stuffing, pause to freely change my name
The bugs will make me queasy as some smurfing (1) is my game

They call me the launderer
Money launderer
It moves around, around, around . . .

Oh well, cash flows from some theft and I’m wary of the plight
Arranging for a deal, well, it’s like an overwrite
And then I’m gutsy, I run to set up trust
I dare again divert, I propose the shell’s a must

‘Cause I’m the launderer
Money launderer
It moves around, around, around . . .

Oh well, I round trip pounds inbound
I dole out bribes, don’t doubt my flair
And I’m so scrappy, won’t back down
With my client lists, I’m lyin’, with the feds unaware

I might skype and buy and strike a deal unsound
Endeavor to erase, a loan that I mark down
And then unwind some pelf, hauling in some pearls
No cop can undo that large design, with pride my plan’s unfurled

Yeah, I’m the launderer
Money launderer
It moves around, around, around . . .

Oh yeah, I will hype, deny, I fight to hone my crown
I buffer and misplace, I stow the pounds in ground
And then I hide on shelf, big haul of dough from Earl
I sop up all of that cash I find, connive a round trip deal

Yeah, ‘cause I’m the launderer
Money launderer
It moves around, around, around . . .

‘Cause I’m the launderer
Money launderer
It moves around, around, around . . .

‘Cause I’m the launderer
Yeah, a launderer
(1) Smurfing is another term used for money launderers who break up large amounts of cash into smaller transactions. Curiously, there are other definitions I found and not just acting like those blue cartoon people. From the urban dictionary, I saw a definition for gamers that meant going on your server under a different name to see what was going on without being recognized, buying up maximum amounts of pseudoephedrine at several locations in order to make crystal meth and strangely, the act of hitting someone across the face with one's penis. http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=smurfing

That last definition sounds like it would hurt. When I saw the title, I visualised a giant washing machine. You actually explain the process fairly well, so that someone such as myself, who is not familiar with the topic, can begin to understand it.

Very original idea and well matched with the OS! Ever since I realized that money laundering was a serious crime, I've been extra careful to empty out the pockets before putting my trousers in the washer.

A clever title swap! 555!

if you're a Smurf "Smurfing" can also have a number of different meanings some of which aren't exactly G-rated 5's

Leough, when you empty out your pockets, make sure you break large chunks of cash into smaller piles to avoid the feds. Jonathan - funny comment on Smurf's - I wonder what it would be like to watch the shows with that definition in mind.
