The Lyrics

Uh!
Oh yeah!
Ah-huh!

Have bucks, wanna hide 'em
Taxman comes, need a haven?
Hot money, in the need of laundering
Model citizen, though a psychopath?

Don't ya know we have perfect solution
You'll hide your wealth for good -
We''ll get there!

Panama, Panama!
Panama, Panama!

Ain't nothin' like it, to outpace the taxman
Set up bogus company, keep off society's hand
Hot money, in the need of laundering
If you're a criminal, we'll welcome your funds -

Don't ya know we have perfect reputation
You'll hide your wealth for good -
We''ll get there!

Panama, Panama
ow!
Panama, Panama
oh-oh-oh-oh
Woo!

[Guitar Solo]

Yeah, we're runnin' a little bit hot tonight
we can hide your dirty bucks from the tax office now
know what I'm saying -?
uhh, we can make an offer you find hard to refuse

Money hiding, they're lying
Right before the inquiry jury now
Get to fizzling, and embezzling
Tax evading, money laundering now

Panama, Panama
Panama, Panama
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Panama, Panama
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Panama

I've been kinda expecting someone to do this theme over this VH song, but then again media in Sweden says that the whole story is hushed in big US media (hard to believe) and if so I'm not surprised it's coming from one of us over on this side of the pond. Did you catch that Iceland's president had to resign already? (Not to mention that GBs Cameron is in trouble, I'd expect Philbo to give us his brittish take any day now).

Yes. Let's say this has created somewhat a tempest in Finland, and it is expected that heads will fall. The Icelanders drew their own conclusions and sacked their president. I strongly suggest we should sack our Prime Minister as well. Our current cabinet is one of the worst post-WWII governments.

Rich people, especially those in charge of governments, have a different set of laws which apply to them and not to us. We expect them to hide their ill-gotten wealth. No big surprise or scandal. And Americans assume all foreign governments are even more corrupt than ours.
