The Lyrics

Because of these guys,
We have much pain,
We have much sorrow.
Their acts were unwise,
Which caused them to beg and to borrow.

AIG, wretched and wrong;
Now it never ends--
There’s still more swag to con.
Bad deeds list is long,
Still they’re gonna feed
On you and me. . .bleed on.

Thieves swallow our dimes,
And they will ask for more tomorrow,
Because we must fulfill all of their greed
So they can net mo’.

AIG, wretched and wrong;
In D.C. they’ve friends--
There’s still more swag to con.
Bad deeds list is long,
Still they’re gonna feed
While their cronies lead on.

They just call on their brother
Who helped with the scam:
Timothy, who helps them to thieve on. . .
Sat at the feet of Paulson, an even worse man,
The chief thief who helped all these creeps con.

Now there’s a load that we have to bear--
The numbers, scary--
For these loathsome toads
Who’ve made inroads
To the Treasury.

They just call on their brother
Who gypped the taxman:
Timothy, who helps them to thieve on
And had his beak up Paulson, an even worse scam,
The chief thief at whose feet Timmy fawned.

Now there’s a load that we have to bear--
The numbers, scary--
For these loathsome toads
Who’ve got their chodes
Up our cavity.

Awl me (and breech my back end). . . .

So true! You really summed it up well. Here's another 5.5.5 to lean on! Good job.

Congress is trying to get everyone riled up at the executive who got the bonuses. They figure that will make everyone forget that it was Congress who gave them hundreds of billions to play with. Unfortunately, that trick works every time.

Patrick: the way I see it, that money was given to help the company, its employees, its customers, and its investors--not to line the pockets of fat cats or to heap big rewards on bad behavior. It would be as if I used my food stamps to throw a party for the Mafia while I let my kids starve.

Excellent analogy, Melanie, although you insult the Mafia by comparing them to those f**cking AIG pigs.
