The Lyrics

In the latest chapter of the American corporate corruption scandal, former ImClone CEO Sam Waksal has been indicted by a federal court in relation to the insider trading scandal surrounding the biotech firm. Today is also the deadline for the CEOs of top American firms to personally certify that their books aren't cooked.
Stocks are under pressure, giving us no pleasure
Our money's history
Enemies within, and they're like a wrecking crew
Causing lots of misery
Now things are so awry, how can Wall Street survive,
C-E-Os in cuffs we see
Now jail time we demand, and we must take a stand
'gainst those guys full of deceit

Market's crazy - no, not a pretty sight to see
Market's crazy - no, there's no end to our worries
Market's crazy - bring 'em 'fore the courts of the land
Market's crazy - this trickery must be banned
Market's crazy - that is the cry across the land!
Market's crazy - we must go and catch every one
Market's crazy - bring 'em 'fore the courts of the land
Market's crazy, market's crazy

What to do? What to do? What to do, we're so confused!
What to do? What to do? What to do, we're so confused!

Waksal's now indicted, plea "not guilty" entered
And what did he do, they say?
Told friends, don't you wait, sell shares with no delay
'Fore it crashes like a lead weight.
But now he is in jail, that is where' he'll stay
And he ain't living like a king
And we're sure there will be more who'll face the jury
More guys in cuffs we'll see.

Market's crazy - no, not a pretty sight to see
Market's crazy - no, there's no end to our worries
Market's crazy - bring 'em 'fore the courts of the land
Market's crazy - this trickery must be banned
Market's crazy - that is the cry across the land!
Market's crazy - we must go and catch every one
Market's crazy - bring 'em 'fore the courts of the land
Market's crazy, market's crazy.

What to do? What to do? What to do, we're so confused!
What to do? What to do? What to do, we're so confused!

Market's crazy - no, not a pretty sight to see
Market's crazy - no, there's no end to our worries
Market's crazy - bring 'em 'fore the courts of the land
Market's crazy - this trickery must be banned
Market's crazy - that is the cry across the land!
Market's crazy - we must go and catch every one
Market's crazy - bring 'em 'fore the courts of the land
Market's crazy, market's crazy.
