The Lyrics

Fitch and Moodys are credit rating agencies CDOs are collateralised debt obligations Footsie - The Financial Times Stock Exchange Index ( like the Dow Jones in the UK) Liar's Poker ..book about the beginnings of the mortgage derivatives market
I think I’m done it’s all over
I think I’m done with it all
I think I’m done with those Fitch and Moody’s ratings
It’s all downside
In the sub prime
I should have got out just before it crashed
Too much downside
Blame the sub prime
They took me to the cleaners my stock’s been trashed

and my broker he said don’t you worry
About the things they’re saying ye eh
But I got no friends in high places
And that market game I know
Wasn’t worth playin

It’s all downside
In the sub prime
I should have got out just before it crashed
Too much downside
Blame the sub prime
They took me to the cleaners my stock’s been trashed

And yes I feel bad
Doctor will you do for me what you can
Because I think about it all the time
Twenty four seven


They said you want it you got it
They never said you’ll lose it no no
And now they’ve repossessed my home
There’s nothing more
nothing more
nothing more
wo ooh wo ooh wo ooh wo

It started with Liar’s Poker
But now it’s into free fall
Those CDOs with those treble A Fitch ratings
It’s all downside
In the sub prime
I should have got out just before it crashed
Too much downside
Blame the sub prime
They took me to the cleaners my stock’s been trashed

And yes I’ve been had
Doctor will you do for me what you can
Because I think about it all the time
It’s drivin’ me crazy

They said you want it you got it
They never said you’ll lose it no no
And now they’ve repossessed my home
There’s nothing more nothing more nothing more


Its all downside
Another bonfire of the vanities baby

When the footsie’s high
And the markets’s jumpin
Come on
just keep on punting
Keep on punting

Subprime loans made a lot of sense because real estate prices never go down, right? Wrong. Great title and very well expressed, Martha.

My teenage offspring knows better (I hope) than use text abbreviations on anything I may read... Am I really that bad? Yes, I guess so. Just make sure your next book isn't full of 'em...

It was at least briefer than my response to your remarks on O Darlin...the Northern Rock number!!
