The Lyrics

limited audience for this one unless you pay attention to the financial world
White Profit (D. Allman, March 2004)

One hike makes it larger
And one hike makes it small,
And the ones Bernanke gives you
Don't do anything at all.
Go ask Alan
When he's 6 feet tall.

And if you go chasing profits
And you know you're going to fall,
Tell 'em open market operations
Have given you the call.
Call Alan
When he's got the ball.

When the men in the boardroom
Get up and tell you where to go
And the deficit is starting to mushroom
And the economy is moving slow.
Go ask Alan
If you think he'll know.

When logic and proportion
Have fallen softly dead,
And the White House is talking backwards
And Red China keeps taunting the Head.
Remember what Paul Volcker said:
"Heed your Fed. Heed your Fed. Heed your Fed."

Worthy of fives simply for the one line "Heed your Fed. Heed your Fed. Heed your Fed."

While I don't understand all of the references, the concept itself and the right-on pacing makes it a straight-shooter 5. Good work!
