the easiest way to not let investment bankers and financiers destroy our economy is to not give them all of our money in the first place.

lyrics

my daddy sat me right down on his knee
said little man now you're old enough to see
there's people in this world
don't always care about your trouble
i know it's hard to hear
don't mean to burst your baby bubble
so do you're best and don't feel bad
about the hands they're dealing
but keep in mind there is a way
to keep them jerks from really winning
and he said if ya
can't beat 'em, annoy 'em
and if ya
can't beat 'em, annoy 'em
and if ya
can't beat 'em, annoy 'em
and if ya
can't beat 'em, annoy 'em
well i grew up and i got me a good job
a wife and kids i weren't no dead-end slob
split-level house with an air-conditioned two-car garage
pumpin' straight through the heart of the American mirage
and then one day my 401K said
hey where'd all our money go to?
i see the faces of the bankers, brokers, bureaucrats
and my father's words told me what to do
and he said if ya
can't beat 'em, annoy 'em
and if ya
can't beat 'em, annoy 'em
and if ya
can't beat 'em, annoy 'em
and if ya
can't beat 'em, annoy 'em
so i did what i could to get outta that racket
and i took my hand up outta that man's pocket
living simply and there ain't no shame
because nothing annoys 'em more
than not playing their game
and now i say if ya
can't beat 'em, annoy 'em
and if ya
can't beat 'em, annoy 'em
and if ya
can't beat 'em, annoy 'em
and if ya
can't beat 'em, annoy 'em, i said
can't beat 'em, can't beat 'em, can't beat 'em
annoy 'em
can't beat 'em, can't beat 'em, can't beat 'em
annoy 'em
can't beat 'em, can't beat 'em, can't beat 'em, can't beat 'em, can't beat 'em, can't beat 'em, can't beat 'em
can't
beat 'em
annoy 'em
