The Lyrics

Just around the corner
half a mile from here
I used to be a broker
what a glittering career

those days are gone
baby I'm all washed up

disintermediation sucks

Any fool could see it comin
The writing was on the wall
We can't compete with those ECNs
Pretty soon we'll lose it all

Don't you see
That' s a trend you just can't buck

Disintermediation sucks

I moved on to corporate finance
I tried floatin IPOs
but they've floated off to cyberspace
that's how the story goes

I'm tellin you now
baby I've run out of luck

Disintermediation sucks

a tecchie now is all they need
it's futile to resist
my reputational capital
is off their shopping list

its all over now
god I'm feeling so rough

disintermediation sucks

The Internet is everywhere
It's doin in my head
It hoovers up commissions
And narrows all my spreads

Hear me baby now
I've really had enough

Disintermediation sucks
