The Lyrics

My mother said that I really should
Find me a job where the pay's really good
I shafted my company, but why should I fear
My pension is still half a million a year

And that's why
I'm a banker, I'm a banker.
I don't give a dang if that is rhyming slang
I'm a banker, I'm a banker
'Cause I'm only doing my thang

I am just fifty years old, but it's time to retire
My pension pot's eight million.. it needs to be higher
So they'll give me sixteen mil. although I'm the pits
Maybe that's what is meant by "Double or quits"

It's sky high...
I'm a banker, I'm a banker.
You're broke down there? Well, I don't fucking care
I'm a banker, I'm a banker
Just as long as I get my share

Oh, Mr Brown and your taxpayers' money
Thank you for paying me, and saving my behind
But one pain in the arse, all this coverage ain't funny
I'll fly off somewhere sunny, I don't like being maligned

Good win on the lottery, good win on the pools
Godwin out of RBS - who cares about rules?
I've lied to shareholders, I've lied to MPs
I've lied to the treas'ry Select Committee

What's a lie?
I'm a banker, I'm a banker.
I find numbers fun, and I'm number one
I'm a banker, I'm a banker
And I do like shooting my gun

Oh, Mr Brown and your chancellor Darling
Thank you for making me so glad to be a Brit
Now you want my cash back, but I won't give you a farthing
I don't want to start quarr'ling, so I'll leave you in the s**t

I'm a banker, (He's a wanker!)
I'm a banker. (He's a wanker!)
I don't give a dang (He doesn't give a damn!)
If that is rhyming slang
I'm a banker, (He's a wanker!)
I'm a banker. (He's a wanker!)
'Cause I'm only doing my thang (He doesn't give a damn!)

Wow, you sure are one greedy, crooked...and lucky banker! Of course, you don't give a damn, right? That's quite the true meaning of a banker. If I was a banker I would also be living the rich and famous life. I would buy a mansion with 10 bedrooms, multiple staff, like live-in butlers, maids, personal trainers, masseuses, and gardeners. My foyer would be grand and have a fountain. I have this friend who's father is a banker and they owned a mansion and everything. Funny song you wrote. Here take another $555 million and hire some live in butlers, masseuses, etc.

I don't knoe the OS, but it was a funny parody...

Coming from a country where Lagom is the norm, I have to say enough should be enough. 555k yearly income should suffice anyone.

I'm just a sucker for any parody that targets bankers - Great job!!! - 555

:-) Thanks, all

Mark - go and find the OS, it's brilliant. So is most of Ivor Biggun's stuff (if a teensy bit on the smutty side)
