The Lyrics


An old man turned retirement age
wond'ring why he lost his 401k
it's a shredded file in your attache'
it's updated financials submitted too late
and isn't it Enron-ic - don't you think


It's no gain in your stock one day
It's a free ride while your shareholders pay
It's inside advice that you just shouldn't take
but who could resist six figures?


Mr. CEO never claimed he lied
He packed his briefcase with reports to hide
He spent the whole damn time saying things were all right
And as the shares crashed down he prayed they wouldn't indict
and isn't it Enron-ic - don't you think


It's no gain in your stock one day
It's a free ride while your shareholders pay
It's inside advice that you just shouldn't take
but who could resist six figures?


Yeah, truth has a funny way of sneaking up on you
when you think everything's OK
and everything's been denied
And the feds have a funny way of bailing you out
when a white-collar crime's gone wrong
and charges are thrown up in your face


A profit scam, and the market's irate
Another CPA finds that you have to restate
It's like ten-million shares that go to seed overnight
It's blowing the job of your dreams but your pension's still good for life
and isn't it Enron-ic - don't you think
a little too Enron-ic - yeah, i really do think


It's no gain in your stock one day
It's a free ride while your shareholders pay
It's inside advice that you just shouldn't take
but who could resist six figures?
Lyrics (c) 2002 Roy C. Smalley
