The bank bailout song

[Sing this to Natasha Bedingfield’s "Pocketful of Sunshine"]

We got a bailout, buckets full of money
We got the last laugh and it’s so funny oh, oh, oh, oh
Say what you want but we got the bailout
Obama and the Fed gave us the payout oh, oh, oh ,oh


We got away, we’ll never pay
Just gotta say, "That’s banks today!"
Taxpayers say, "It’s just a shame!"
Whatever it takes, they’ll get their way


We got a bailout, buckets full of money
We got control and we’ll use it honey oh, oh, oh, oh
Think what you want but you’re never gonna beat us

mark to market sure didn’t stop us, oh, oh, oh, oh

All those senators we paid to help us
All those hedge funds bidding our stock up oh, oh, oh, oh
All those emails Kung Fu Pandit sent out
We own the United States and there’s no doubt oh, oh, oh, oh







We got away, we’ll never pay
Just gotta say, "That’s banks today!"
Taxpayers say, "It’s just a shame!"
Whatever it takes, they’ll get their way


There are places at Vegas we go, our homes away from home

where the money flows, and nobody knows
And we can tell "little lies" like "The Banks Are All Fine!"
And the market climbs, they’re all buying that line!


We got away, we’ll never pay
Just gotta say, "That’s banks today!"
Taxpayers say, "It’s just a shame!"
Whatever it takes, they’ll get their way


We got away, we’ll never pay
You have to say, "That’s banks today!"
Taxpayers say, "It’s just a shame!"
Whatever it takes, they’ll get their way


We got away
(We got a bailout, buckets full of money)
We’ll never pay
(We got the last laugh, and it’s so funny)
Just gotta say "That’s Banks Today!"
(We got a bailout, buckets full of money)
We got away, we’ll never pay
(We got the last laugh, and it’s so funny)






Just gotta say, "That’s Banks Today!"
The government’s on our side, we take them for a ride
The taxpayers smile and say, they know it’ll be ok
The markets are on our side, we take them for a ride
Investors smile and say, they know it’ll be ok
