Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Could be set in the UK or the US (or any other wealthy country)
The bankers ought to get the chop
They’re greedy an’ they know no shame
They’ve ruined this country we love
Their bonus is the same

They’ve got it…no maybe, they’ve got it
Well, it’s their bonus…my life dire but they’ll retire
Well, they will bone us…they’ve got prior, I’m in the mire

Their plunders cause us to despise
Takin’ all that we had
Pat on the back and cigar
For a job done so bad

They’ve got it…no maybe, they’ve got it
Well, it’s their bonus…my life dire but they’ll retire
Well, they will bone us…they’ve got prior, I’m in the mire

They’ve got it…no maybe, they’ve got it
Well, it’s their bonus…my life dire but they’ll retire
Well, the will bone us…they’ve got prior, I’m in the mire

Great banker bashing. And you're right. It fits either county! Bonus of 555 pounds or dollars to you...

Sad, but true. A well-deserved skewering, and beautiful pacing!

Good job on this. It's amazing how the very people who are running the businesses into the ground are walking away with all the money instead of going to jail.
