The Lyrics

They wash it here they wash it there
From the BVI to Gibraltar
They don't care where you got it or who you are it's quite okay
Cos they are dedicated launderers of mammon

From Notting Hill to old Belair
All bankers love a billionaire
From the days when Al Capone's accountant taught them how to play
They're all such educated launderers of mammon

Oh yes they are (oh yes they are) oh yes they (oh yes they are)
You can find them getting pissed in Vanuatu
And when they're on that FATF blacklist well it really makes their day
Those quite inebriated launderers of mammon

Oh yes they are (oh yes they are) oh yes they are (oh yes they are)
They're always so discreet and understanding
They know you hate the taxman - just relax cos so do they
Those cool and calculated launderers of mammon

They wash it here they wash it there
From The Isle of Man to Grenada
With a classic Swiss franc loan back they will wash your sins away
They're such sophisticated launderers of mammon

Oh yes they are (oh yes they are) oh yes they are (oh yes they are)
Why don't you say you made it trading futures
August financial institutions always look the other way
Those very elevated launderers of mammon

Oh yes they are (oh yes they are) oh yes they are (oh yes they are)
They'll just forget to send that STR* to NCIS*
These days compliance is expensive how else could they afford to pay?
Those over regulated launderers of mammon
*suspicious transaction report/ national criminal intelligence service

It's got a few "Kinks" in it, but you get 5s for a very clever parody. Very cool song to parody.

If I were voting on the title alone, you'd get a 7.

(ABC) The Kinks are hilarious....good job here! I posted a parody of The Kinks' song "Apeman", called "Wetware".....Ray Davies is just too much!

Clever idea, very good parody. I liked the rhyming variety in the launderer adjectives.

Clever parody to an excellent song. Agri, do yourself a favour and find it, it is great. If you can't find it, contact me on the board....

DKTOS, and some of the references sailed over my head, but the title is great and the lyrics stand up on their own. I like it. (And I'm a mammon fan.)
