Insanity in General – Bankers

INSANITY IN GENERAL

(Bright Banter From Bumptious Bankers)
(Sung to the tune of I am the Very Model of a Modern Major-General)

We are the very model of insanity in general
We’ve information financial, domestic and commercial
We know the ins and outs of law and quote interest rates fiducial
From the lowest to the highest, backed by the facts irreducible

We’re very well appointed too with money making strategies
Though more for us and less for you without a thought of quandaries
About your wealth on paper we’re teeming with a lot o’ news
With many cheery facts, although there will be none of use to you

With many cheery facts, although there will be none of use to you
With many cheery facts, although there will be none of use to you
With many cheery facts, although there will be none of use to you

We’re very good at interest, compounded and miraculous
We know the corporate names of those who should be backing us
In short, in matters financial, domestic and commercial
We are the very model of insanity in general

In short, in matters financial, domestic and commercial
We are the very model of insanity in general

We spout our mythic theories, so you can’t understand us
We answer hard accusers in ways they can’t remand us
We quote the rates and options, urge you to take big risks
When it all falls apart in days we shake our heads and tsk

We can tell undoubted marks as they walk right through our door
We mock the soaking that you’ll take when markets fall right through the floor
We will sing a song of sympathy, great tears and hearty sighs
And whistle as we count our loot away from prying eyes

And whistle as we count our loot away from prying eyes
And whistle as we count our loot away from prying eyes
And whistle as we count our loot away from prying eyes

Then we cry too big to fail and get bailed out instantly
And tell you how are halos shine and why we’re heavenly
In short, in matters financial, domestic and commercial
We are the very model of insanity in general

In short, in matters financial, domestic and commercial
We are the very model of insanity in general

In fact we know what’s meant by usury and bankruptcy
And tell ourselves we rue the sight of other people’s poverty
When such affairs hit here at home and bankers grow quite fat
Will you ever hope to know how we get away with that?

When we have earned big bonuses for failing miserably
We’ll slip away upon our yachts hoping for obscurity
In short without a smattering of chagrin or chivalry
We will do it all again as our model of insanity

For our financial knowledge, callous and a mockery
Has never been involved at all with people or humanity
So still, in matters financial, domestic and commercial
We are the very model of insanity in general

So still, in matters financial, domestic and commercial
We are the very model of insanity in general
