The Lyrics

Inspired by the near collapse and buy out of the hedge fund Long Term Capital Management
You took my GKOs
and then you came on down
to sign my Master Repo
How was I to know
as the champagne flowed
that Russia was about to deal
her devastating blow?


We're never gonna trade again.
Your balance sheet had so much hidden
It's so easy to pretend
You took me for a fool
I should've known better than to trust a friend
And waste the chance that I'd been given
No we're never gonna trade again
the way we used to do

Time can never mend
the careless credit offered to a good friend
High on power and greed
I was driven by the need
to believe your fiendish arbitrage
would beat the market trend


But as all hell was breaking loose
Ol Greenspan said
'They're home to roost
Believe me .. it's better this way
you better bail them out you're gonna need a fix'
We could have been so good together
cutting sexy deals forever
but now whose gonna trade with you?
We're through

Just spotted an error in the last chorus line 5 should read "if you don't bail them out there'll be no game to play" alternatiuveley the previous line could read "you guys are mainlinin systemic risk"
