Wrote this song yesterday after watching yet another TV news dominated by banking misfortunes, bonuses, bailouts, scandals and misdemeanours. The title is a sly nod in the direction of The Small Faces classic “Song Of A Baker”.

SONG OF A BANKER (LYRICS)

I will stitch you up so I can buy another car
Sell you a pup for a week in Lloret de Mar
Put you in Queer Street while I prop up the bar
Shred another balance sheet and light up a cigar
*
Short term, short term
We’re all in this together little worm
Major concern
I will live it large while you squirm
*
If you don’t like my style go tell the Ombudsman
Grab some Legal Aid and catch me if you can
I’ll seal a deal (and) when the shit hits the fan
I’ll walk away with a bonus in the can
*
Short term, short term
We’re all in this together little worm
Major concern
I caused a crash but I won’t burn
*
Short term, short term,
We’re all in this together little worm,
When will you learn?
I’m a dandy city buck, on the up and up, see what I earn!
*
