The Lyrics

(instrumental intro)

They concealed billions in corporate expenses.
"They cooked their books!" is the public consensus.
Investor ruin is what their sleaze brings.
Victimized by CEO corporate stings.

Phony shell companies were golden fleeces.
Counted as profits were just long-term leases.
401K's bought their bosses gold rings.
Victimized by CEO corporate stings.

Perverse incentives to misled investors.
Workers were victims; finanacial scam testers.
CEO's robbed all their nest egg savings.
Victimized by CEO corporate stings.

SEC barks, but has no bite.
No, it never had.
"We should dismember these CEO kings!"
Say victims, they're so... damned mad!

Cooked their books just to report record earnings.
Scorched their own firms, but they survived the burnings.
Faith in our markets destroyed by these things.
Victimized by CEO corporate stings.

Enron, Quest, World.com, Harken, Halliburton.
Corporate malfeasance has employees hurtin'.
Lost enough money to bankrupt most kings.
Victimized by CEO corporate stings.

Consultant auditors, conflicts of interest.
Now Arthur Andersen's dead - read the inquest.
Blame the Republicans, who greased these things.
Victimized by CEO corporate stings.

SEC barks, but has no bite.
No, it never had.
"We should dismember these CEO kings!"
Say victims, they're so... damned mad!
