With A Little Help From The Fed

What would you do if I told you a tale,
Would you work up a Bail-Out for me?
Lend me some cash, a few billion or so,
To Fort Knox you should give me the key.

Oh, I get by with a little help from the Fed,
Profits stay high with a little help from the Fed,
Bonuses fly with a little help from the Fed.

What do I do when profits go away.
(Does it worry you to be so broke)
How such stupid investments go awry
(And capitalism becomes a joke)

When I get by with a little help from the Fed,
Bonuses fly with a little help from the Fed,
Sal'ries stay high with a little help from the Fed.

Do you need any money?
I need a new Ferrari,
Just tell us how much money,
An eighty foot yacht for me.

Oh, I get by with a little help from the Fed,
Continue to lie with a little help from the Fed
Gold parachutes fly with a little help from the Fed.

Do you know we will save you?
Yes of course 'cause I'm too big to fail.
What do you do if we turn out the lights?
I take all the cash and then I bail.

Oh I get by with a little help from the Fed,
Profits stay high with a little help from the Fed,
Taxpayers cry 'cause of that help from the Fed.

Do you need any money?
A new McMansion for me.
With more taxpayer money,
One for my wife too, you see.

Yes, I got by with a little help from the Fed,
Sal'ries stayed high with a little help from the Fed,
Taxpayers cried 'cause of the help from the Fed,
Yes I got by with a little help from the Fed,
With a little help from the Fe-ee-ee-ee-eeeed!
