Parody Song Title:

"My name is Mr. Lay"

Parody Written by:

James L

The Lyrics

This song is about the collapse of Enron with Kenneth Lay as the lying CEO
Hi! My name is... (what?) My name is... (who?)
My name is... (scratches) Mr. Lay
Hi! My name is... (huh?) My name is... (what?)
My name is... (scratches) Mr. Lay

Ahem.. excuse me!
Can I have the attention of the court
for one second?

Hi Kids! Do you like Business? (Yeah yeah yeah!)
Wanna see me turn this empire into a huge mess?
Wanna try something corrupted like I did? (Yeah yeah!)
Try fraud and get messed worse than my life is? (Huh?)
I'm not headstrong, I'm tryin hard to go long
but I can't figure to whom I wanna do wrong
My advisor said "Mr. Lay, man you're crooked"
Uh-Uh! "Then why the rude look, man you're books cooked
Well since day one, I've had the urge to run
Cause with my severance package I wanted to have fun.
Got bored stiff and cheated some more hoods
hit them and said "I didn't know the projects paid this good.
I'm bout to lash out and snap and fondle the brass
faster than the Marsalis who arrived too fast
C'mere money! (Mr. Lay, that's my cash sir!)
I don't give a damn, and please stop the wimper!

Hi! My name is... (what?) My name is... (who?)
My name is... (scratches) Mr. Lay
Hi! My name is... (huh?) My name is... (what?)
My name is... (scratches) Mr. Lay

My Ethics teacher wanted to funk me freshman year
Thanks a lot, now I'll never get out of here
I whispered in his ear something funny, threw him some money, and made my name with a company (ka-ching)
Walked in the courtroom, had the urge to lunge
Flipped the bailiff, and sneered at the judge
My attorney, running after the ambulance, flashing his license, while shouting: I'm just freelance"
Ninety-nine percent of my life I did the lying
and I just found out I could do the firing
I told them I'd grow up to be the CEO
But that dream, didn't last, didn't flow (damn)
You know you blew it, when employees come to your home
Screaming their complaints with a giant megaphone
And my attorney once asked for my signature
So I signed it: 'Dear Tom, thanks for the support, for sure'

Hi! My name is... (what?) My name is... (who?)
My name is... (scratches) Mr. Lay
Hi! My name is... (huh?) My name is... (what?)
My name is... (scratches) Mr. Lay

Stop the press he shouldn't be in the jury booth!
Fastow, don't just stand there, hide the truth!
I'm not ready to fry, my fortune is way too high (Wo-whooo!)
I guess I'll have to settle for solitary confine
Do I get the low tide the courts just can't decide
I just drank a fifth of coffee -- dare me to hide? (Go ahead)
All my life I was very surprised
I hadn't told the truth in years, and soon Enron fried
Figures down, like an insane drunk clown
I lie, on the fly, In the pool of lies I drown
When I was younger I would get so angry I would just gibe
How you gonna decide all this judge, isn't this diatribe
I lay awake and walk into the cell
In the minimum security, and told them to go to hell
And I'm a greedy man
Oh and if you see Mr. Anderson? (Yeah?)
Tell him that I hope he winds up in state pen.

Hi! My name is... (what?) My name is... (who?)
My name is... (scratches) Mr. Lay
Hi! My name is... (huh?) My name is... (what?)
My name is... (scratches) Mr. Lay

I thought you song was soo dope! I mean like hello who ever thought white boys could be so corrupt! I thought it was hilarious how you mentioned a teacher that you disliked in the past. Please keep writing more white collar crime songs. It keeps me away from my husband!
