The Lyrics

The saga of Wall Street corruption continues, with former WorldCom chairman Bernie Ebbers invoking his right to remain silent in front of a congressional committee this week. After President George W. Bush made a speech denouncing such acts of corporate malfeasance and calling for increased penalties and a stronger enforcement of current laws, could this mean that these modern-day robber barons are on the way to jail? We hope so.
Wall Street companies collapsing, what a sad, sad story
Can the market ever return to its former glory
When, oh when we'll see? Will they cop a plea?
We looked around, and then we found
The man to blame, you see
And now it's...

Jail time for barons, we hope we'll see
The feds will take them away
They're facing lots of court cases
Look out, here comes the big disgrace

Jail time for barons, we hope we'll see
Dubya has such a hard stance
Jail time for barons, we hope we'll see
Stop the lying, you there in finance

(Andersen accountants)
We got caught cooking the books, and now we're far from off the hook
Don't be stupid, be a smarty, don't behave so low and dirty

(Long instrumental break)

Jail time for barons, we hope we'll see
Summons are coming today
We hope these crooks won't strike again
Markets are on the rise again

Jail time for barons, we hope we'll see
Con men convicted once more (Well, talk about bad taste!)
Jail time for barons, we hope we'll see

Means that soon they'll be going
They've got to be going
You know they'll be going to jail!
