The Lyrics

I knew a man named Greenspan
He'd adjust the rates in designer shoes
With silver hair and starched white shirt
and tailored pants to something new

Stocks jumped so high
Stocks jumped so high
Could they lightly touch down?

[chorus]
O Doctor Greenspan
O Doctor Greenspan
Doctor Greenspan dance

I met him in a cube in a dot com
I was down and out
He looked at me to be the eyes of age
as he spoke right out

he talked of dough
talked of dough
he laughed slapped his leg a step

[chorus]
O Doctor Greenspan
O Doctor Greenspan
Doctor Greenspan dance

He said his name Doc Greenspan
then he danced his Fed. across the cube
He grabbed rates for a better fate, market
Jumped so high then it fell down

Then he let go a laugh
Let go a laugh
Shook back his rates all around

[chorus]
O Doctor Greenspan
O Doctor Greenspan
Doctor Greenspan dance

Words danced for those at committee hearings
Close to hear his mouth
He spoke with tears of eight long years
How the ecomomy moved on out moved on out

The ecomomy up and died
It up and died
and I fear he still grieves

[chorus]
O Doctor Greenspan
O Doctor Greenspan
Doctor Greenspan dance
