The Lyrics

Devil? Scammer? Predatory Lender? Pretty much the same thing, at least in this parody.
Please allow me to introduce myself.
I'm some one who preys on poor.
Don't make loans at thirty six percent.
My customers pay ten times more.

I'll be around when desperate folks
Have their moment of fear and pain.
Make damn sure their poverty
Becomes my financial gain.

Pleased to meet you.
Hiding who I am.
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my scam.

I started up those payday loans.
Make the same loan again and again.
Took your title and then your car
While the debtors screamed in vain.

I broke the bank
While my ethics stank.
Watched the bubble burst
And my loans just sank.

Pleased to meet you.
Hiding who I am, oh yeah.
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my scam, oh yeah.
(woo woo, woo woo)

My fortunes waxed
While the laws relaxed.
In the name of greed
I did what I pleased.
(woo woo, woo woo)

I donated to
Those who make policy.
And after that
They passed laws for me.
(who who, who who)

Let me please introduce myself.
I'm some one who preys on poor.
And I lay traps for borrowers
Who are ruined before they leave my door.
(woo woo, who who)

Pleased to meet you.
Hiding who I am, oh yeah.
(who who)
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my scam, oh yeah, get down, baby.
(who who, who who)

Pleased to meet you.
Hiding who I am, oh yeah.
But what's confusing you.
Is the nature of my scam.
(woo woo, who who)

Just as Wall Street is full of criminals
And vice goes without complaint.
As times will change
Call me despicable.
Cause I'm in need of some restraint.
(who who, who who)

So if you meet me
Have no courtesy
Have no sympathy, feel no pain.
(woo woo)
Use all your legal weaponry
And take my ill-gotten gain, um yeah.
(woo woo, woo woo)

Pleased to meet you.
Hiding who I am, um yeah.
(who who)
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my scam, um mean it, get down.
(woo woo, woo woo)

Woo, who
Oh yeah, get on down.
Oh yeah.
Oh yeah!
(woo woo)

Tell me patsy, what's my scam.
Tell me sucker, can ya guess my scam.
Tell me patsy, what's my scam.
I'll tell you one time, it's a flim flam.

Oh, who.
Woo, woo.
Woo, who.
Woo, woo.
Woo, who, who.
Woo, who, who.
Oh, yeah.

What's my scam.
Tell me patsy, what's my scam.
Tell me sucker, what's my scam.

Woo, who, who.
Woo, who, who.
Woo, who, who.
Woo, who, who.
Woo, who, who.
Woo, who, who.
Oh, yeah.
Woo, woo.
Woo, woo.
