The Lyrics

A times 3, oh that’s what they gave to some smelly companies
Such as Lehman Brothers.
They’re greasy (they’re so sleazy),
Their ratings rancid, often crazy.

S&P (S&P) cadre of schmucks who blew it rating CDs*
(Rating CDs),
Blew it with countries too.
They’re sleazy (they’re so greasy),
Their ratings rancid, o’ersight lazy.

Gave 3’s to some really garbage junk;
Ratings 3 from some weasly guys.
Retards smarted when rates revealed as bunk—
To look tough now, they drop us from high.

They’re sleazy (they’re so weasly)
Their ratings rancid, ethics hazy.

What a putz-stuffed crew (and a schmuck-stuffed crew),
Judging the junk “sweet,” then—uh-oh!—’08 near drew
(Rates had been skewed),
Now, try to right it, but they’re weasly
(They’re so sleazy),
Their ratings rancid, triple-A spree.

A times 3, oh that’s what they gave to some real smelly CDs
(Smelly CDs). . .
Were really worthless junk,
A fleece spree. . . .

Remember, those bonds were backed by the intimidation power of the Waffen-IRSS. Safest bet on the planet.

JAB - And yet, we have people in Washington demanding MORE stimulus spending and more bail-out to Fannie and Freddie (thank you, Barney Frank!). ;D
