The Lyrics

The Stones rock! Thanks to Ken Lay and Martha for being heartless snobs!
Kevin Lay the C.E.O
Was an old and sinful man
Cheated investors out of millions
And then his fall began
I said yeah
I said yeah

Martha Stewart knew temptation
But she decorated for too long
And she began to just forget that
She was doing something wrong
I said yeah
I said yeah

I said yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
You never will subpoena me
Oh yeah, oh yeah
You never will subpoena me

And they had company-wide parties
Where they shredded 401k's
Can you decorate your jail cell
At the state penitentiary

And I do believe in trials
But I want to save my gold
Bein' head of corporate fraud
I'm gonna die here in the cold
I said yes, I said yeah

I said yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
You never will subpoena me
Oh yeah, oh yeah
You never will subpoena me
Oh yeah, oh yeah
You never will subpoena me
Oh yeah, oh yeah
You never will subpoena me

I thought I heard an investor cry
I thought I saw a teardrop falling from his eye

Martha was a decorator
And a pretty good cook too
But she put a little too much stuffing
In her bank from insider trading too

I said yes
I said yeah

I said yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
You never will subpoena me
Oh yeah, oh yeah
You never will subpoena me
Oh yeah, oh yeah
You never will subpoena me
Oh yeah, oh yeah
You never will subpoena me

I thought I heard an investor cry
I thought I saw a teardrop falling from his eye
I thought I saw an investor cry

You never will subpoena me
You never will subpoena me
You never will subpoena me

Some good lines in that one... but tell me: what kind of accent do you need to make "401k" rhyme with "penitentiary"? ;-)

Very nice take on a terrific, underrated Stones Classic! Great job, Aaron -CD
Aaron Dodson - October 30, 2003 - Report this comment
Phil: You make "401k" and "penitentiary" ryhme by pronouncing "penitentiary" as pen-it-ent-che-air-RAY
John Jenkins - October 30, 2003 - Report this comment
Are Kevin Lay (first line of parody) and Ken Lay (introduction) related?
Aaron Dodson - October 31, 2003 - Report this comment
John: They're the same person. No, scratch that; alien. Ken (or Kevin) Lay was the C.E.O. of Enron.
