The Lyrics

In the spirit of bipartisanship, mixed metaphors.
Downtown’s got its hustlers,
Near Bowery are those bums.
Down on old Wall Street, griftin’ Tim Geithner
Feeds on stools of Henry Paulson.
Henry big-head bum; to the trough he’d come
And he gobbled while we took the loss. . .
One of the bad folks caused the economic blight,
He helped to make that pig, Tim, boss. . .no coin toss
And today. . .

Finance thug and student of snake. . .
The shits who caused the mess win,
And if you pull the mask off, the chrome-dome loans ’rranger
Pulls the strings on the mess-up Tim.

Well, they went South, pair o’ scammers, Hank and his butt boy.
Hank’s holdin’ hands with his disciple, Tim,
Who’s a stool-chewin’ boy;
Hank’s got his willie deployed
In Tim’s posterior “quim.”
Hank is movin’ from position of king of Wall Street;
He’s droppin’ lots o’ cash snatched by banks—
These creeps takin’ all that money.
Hank makes sure his honey
Will not make ’em give the money back,
And the taxpayers get jacked. . .blown, their dough.

The Goldman skunk, his student a snake,
These two shits ensure Street wins.
To gull us all, their task, these ho’ “loan” ’rrangers—
Pullin’ strings first is Hank, then Tim.

They got slush funds for all the fools who
Caused huge losses on Wall and Main Street.
And when their sluttin’ was done
And we had parted with our money,
The aholes got a great big treat.
Most of the money went to the wrong places,
Such as the pockets of caused-loss whores.
And you’d better believe
That it’ll be the same old story
Because crooks run the stores. And we pay.

Who’s the next skunk to screw us and take
All our bills, sawbucks and fins?. . .
All you have to ask, ’cause these loan arrangers
Mess the country up, and then win.

Now, pig Tim and fat cats
Riflin’ all the cash
While they’re hustlin’ people—me and you.
Because they are accustomed to fleecing—it just what they do.

Right now the skunk is student of snake
These two ripped all but the skin
Off our pummeled asses; these troll loan ’rrangers:
Hank and his water-fetcher, Tim.

The Goldman skunk, his super[ior] a snake;
We got ripped off, and they win
When Hank’s term had passed came the new loan ’rranger. . .
A huge dough mess from downtown Tim.

Yes and many in Congress are trying to jump on the "we hate Tim G" bandwagon, but only for shilling votes - they don't seem to do anything about it. I never understood the concept of "only the guys that got you into this mess can get you out of it"

There is a lot of blame to go around for the financial mess, but this parody does a great job of skewering two of the biggest contributors. I particularly like the last verse.
