The Lyrics

TARP (the "Troubled Asset Relief Program" or "Troubled Assets Relief Plan") is a program that has been proposed by the US government to purchase assets of troubled financial institutions in order to protect the global financial system ) Goldman Sachs which raised bn from Mr Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway plus a further bn from institutional investors, will use the money to buy assets either from the US government's planned 0bn bail-out fund or from banks directly.
When you really had it all
When fear has killed your pride and
You are bound to fall
We’re on your side
Oh when times get rough
And credit can’t be found
Here’s relief for your troubled assets
We will buy you out
Here’s relief for your troubled assets
We will buy you out

When you’re down and out,
On old Wall Street
When the market falls so hard
We will rescue you
We’ll take your debt.
When buyers can’t be found
Andd pain is all around,
Here’s relief for your troubled assets
We will buy you out
Here’s relief for your troubled assets
We will buy you out

Sail on Goldman Sachs
Sail on by
Your time has come to shine.
All your dreams are on their way.
See how they shine.
If you need a friend
I’m sailing right behind.
You’ll take your pick of the troubled assets
It will be so fine
With that cash from old Warren Buffet
It’s a real goldmine
