written at the height of the financial crisis, blah blah blah... just listen to it. it's fun without getting all paul krugman on yer ass. because nobody wants that - thanks!

lyrics

i was livin' the high life, American dream like,
I had mountains of money to spend.
i made my promotions with deals over the oceans,
i knew that good times would never end.
poor me, poor me
can't you see that my life's over
poor me, poor me
can't you see the well's run dry
poor me, poor me
i ain't got nuthin' to show for
the good times have done passed me by
it was so easy, we floated on a breeze,
we took ev'rything that weren't nailed down.
the money came so quickly but computers can be tricky
nobody saw the end come around.
poor me, poor me
can't you see that my life's over
poor me, poor me
can't you see the well's run dry
poor me, poor me
i ain't got nuthin' to show for
the good time have done passed me by
then one sunny summer day, i over heard the tv say
the deals i made were all going bad
i put two and two together, the scheme had come untethered
ev'rything was sinkin' down real fast
poor me, poor me
can't you see that my life's over
poor me, poor me
can't you see the well's run dry
poor me, poor me
i ain't got nuthin' to show for
the good times have done passed me by
the margin calls were steep, oh! my bently's now in repo
my wife's coat is fur second-hand.
it was fun while it lasted, then suddenly they passed it
thank god for the market bailout plan
poor you, poor you
can't you see that you've been swindled?
poor you, poor you
can't you see that you been screwed?
poor you, poor you'
obama ain't gonna save you
the good times were never meant for you
