The Lyrics

Perhaps the dictionary should exchange "Thain" as a replacement for "vain". Could the OS have been more of a set up for a parody of Thain?
You stalked in with a chart it's like you were thinking they don't know squat,
Big cat strategically skipped the woe, you lie,
They barf as you hope they bought,
You had run dry on old Merrill as B-O-A tied the knot,
And all the world dreamed that they'd be your partner, they'd be your partner, and . . .

You're so Thain, you probably think they're wrong as they doubt you,
You're John Thain, jet set will drink along as they tout you,
Shout "you", tout you.

Your big fee, all your peers should know or they should come to perceive,
Well, you're bred to upgrade your office with flair,
And that we should just believe,
But you gave away the bonuses from TARP funds that were free,
I heard some screams, they were loud for your big spree, loud for your big spree, and . . .

You're so Thain, you probably think they're wrong as they doubt you,
You're John Thain, jet set will drink along as they tout you,
Shout "you", tout you.

Well I hear you spent much and went all ga-ga, no remorse to spoil your fun,
Then you spewed your bad debt as you strove to snow them,
To be the crowing new ship's number one,
Well, you're where you should be, crawl in grime,
You think you're hot, you're myth,
Dumb, plundering guy, you're just rife as you defend, life as you descend, and . . .

You're so Thain, you probably think they're wrong as they doubt you,
You're John Thain, jet set will drink along as they tout you,
Shout "you", tout you.

Don't who Thain is, but it gives me an idea for a similarly-named parody with a completely differnt topic...

Ag: John Thain was the head of Merrill Lynch. He brokered Merrill to Bank of America and felt he deserved a 10 million bonus for it, paid bonuses early to get around TARP rules and spent about a million to redecorate his office - a fine example of greed and excess. If you want to know more, you can google him and they actually have a write up on Wikepedia. Alvin - thanks, it was meant to be vicious as he deserved it - spending taxpayer dollars for his extravagence.

When it comes to wasting taxpayer dollars, it is rare that business people do it as extravagantly as politicians. As this parody clevely points out, Mr. Thain is the exception.
