The Lyrics

I'm Henery the snake I am,
Henery the snake I am, I am.
I got billions, although I was a whore
For Goldman Sachs--that's part of the corps
Of thugs who drove us to penury--
Stole truckloads, then stuck it to Uncle Sam.
I'm an pate-honed man, I'm Henery,
Henery the ape I am.

Second round--half a trill' down.

I'm Henery the fake I am,
Henery the snakeoil man, I am.
I got bullion, although I was a whore
For the Wall Street bunch who made us poor,
And now they suck dry the Treasury
Of billions, they've stuck it to Uncle Sam.
I'm a take-gold man, I'm Henery,
Henery the snake I am.

H-E-N-R-Y.
Henery, Henery,
Henery the snake I am, I am,
Treasury I rape--my scam.

While TOS is called "I'm Henry the Eighth, I Am" (you left out some words in the title), I think this is a well-put-together parody which shall be awarded with 5 5 5.
