  1. Money Back

From the album Be Yourself

Lyrics

MONEY BACK
It’s the greatest story that’s ever been told
How the banks robbed the people and then they fold
Default swaps and sub-primed loans, I feel it in my bones
Its man behind the wheel who takes the road

We want our money back
Seven hundred thousand million, to be exact

They say the fundamentals of the economy are strong
We need a bailout they’re too big to fail so come along
We’ll shore up the economy till it’s all gone
We had Ed McMahon melting down his gold we knew something’s wrong

We want our money back,
Fourteen hundred thousand million, to be exact

Bernie Madoff, Henry Paulson, and old Ken Lay
They all got greedy like the CEO of Chevrolet
Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, now it’s us who’ll have to pay
From Enron to AIG, and the games they play.

We want our money back,
They say its 100 dollar bills in a stack, to the moon and back

It’s the greatest story that’s ever been told
How the banks robbed the people and then they sold
Default swaps, sub-primed loans, now I feel it in my bones
It’s the man behind the wheel who takes the road

We want our money back,
At seven hundred billion at a time, well I’ve lost track
