The Lyrics

Found this parody with approx one third missing in my old sketch folder, decided to see if I could finish it. Originally it was meant for possible SOTM competition use but the highly unusual form of overlapping vocals made me opt for other ideas; for one the main lyrics in the first bridge (and it opens with a bridge, not a verse) are most consistently sung by the background dancers, not the main vocalist, it then continues pretty much the same way to and fro, hence even good internet transcripts of the original lyrics are a hassle to work with.

A YouTube version of the original song can currently be found here.
Wallet, it's so big, my wallet
Wallet, can you dig, my wallet
Wallet, it's so butch, my wallet
Wallet, you can't touch my wallet
Wallet, check it out, my wallet
Wallet, double sized old wallet
Wallet, talking 'bout my wallet
Wallet, fattened up old wallet

Every hobo wanna be a Wall Street, Wall Street man
Ever bigger profits, stacked up in his hand
Trading in the morning, high and low
Banking in the places fortunes grow
You are best prepared to be a Wall Street man
If you can take candy from a baby's hand

Buy! Buy! Buy! Buy! Buy!

Wall Street, Wall Street man
I've got some dough, a Wall Street man
Wall Street, Wall Street man
I get to tax a zero!

Wall Street, Wall Street man
I've got some dough, a Wall Street man
Wall Street, Wall Street man
I get to tax a zero!

Wallet, it's on spot, my wallet
Wallet, smoking hot, my wallet
Wallet, 'let you know, my wallet
Wallet, 'full of dough, my wallet
Wallet, and there's more, my wallet
Wallet, it has drawers, my wallet
Wallet, it's so good, my wallet
Wallet, I get wood, who wouldn't

And you know a rich man, he has a lot of clout
Investor funds and gov'rnments, always bails him out
Chunky is his wallet, cash is king
Wiping with a Gold Card, pissing bling
You should also strive at, be a Wall Street man
Be like an eager beaver, with diamond dick in hand

Buy! Buy! Buy! Buy! Buy!

Wall Street, Wall Street man
I've got some dough, a Wall Street man
Wall Street, Wall Street man
I get to tax a zero!

Wall Street, Wall Street man
I've got some dough, a Wall Street man
Wall Street, Wall Street man
I get to tax a zero!

Wallet, wallet, wallet, a big deal, my wallet
Wallet, wallet, wallet, can't conceal my wallet
Wallet, wallet, wallet, double knitted wallet
Wallet, wallet, wallet, it's the shit, my wallet

Every woman wanna get a Wall Street, Wall Street man
To gold-diggers they're gem stones, worth a million grand
Underneath the fake smiles, no big deal
A mess of cramps and moral sense, a fifth wheel
You can have a harem when you're a Wall Street man
Have a daily princess, in your own Disneyland

Fly! Fly! Fly! Fly! Fly!

Wall Street, Wall Street man
I've got some dough, a Wall Street man
Wall Street, Wall Street man
I get to tax a zero! (Don't you think that I'm blessed?)

Wall Street, Wall Street man (See my big golden stash!)
I've got some dough, a Wall Street man
Wall Street, Wall Street man
I get to tax a zero! (Big shareholder!)

Wall Street, Wall Street man (Not a hustler!)
I've got some dough, a Wall Street man
Wall Street, Wall Street man
I get to tax a zero!

Etc
