Investment Banker Blues

by Jon Wesick

EVERYBODY wants to know
why I sing the blues
I say everybody wants to know
why I sing the blues
'Cause the subprime mortgage crisis
is on the evening news

Bear Stearns, Fannie, Freddie
they said were too big to fail
With so many friends in Congress
none of them will ever go to jail
Well, everybody wants to know
why I sing the blues
The subprime mortgage crisis
is on the evening news

Stockholders' lawyers
said we'd all get sued
Man, those process servers
can be exceptionally rude
And everybody wants to know
why I sing the blues
The subprime mortgage crisis
is on the evening news

At my favorite country club
the management raised its rates
They had to hire extra guards
to keep reporters from the gates
I say everybody wants to know
why I sing the blues
The subprime mortgage crisis
is on the evening news

Alimony payments
are biting me in the rear
It's hard to make ends meet
on fifty million dollars a year
And everybody wants to know
why I sing the blues
The subprime mortgage meltdown
is on the evening news

That seven hundred billion bailout
it barely made a dent
'Cause I'm telling you darlin'
I only got ten percent
Everybody wants to know
why I sing the blues
The subprime mortgage crisis
is on the evening news
