The Bank

THE BANK

                                                                       

Cho:  The bank, the bank, they keep me so busy     

The bank, the bank, and I’m getting dizzy               

 

Bridge:  Stand-in-line to deposit, I put money in        

Write a check, send it off, start all over again!          

The bank, the bank , the bank!                               

Chorus

 

Downtown all around, I look in the air                        

Banks are all over, there’s banks everywhere!             

Hun’dreds to choose from, it’s not very clear,              

So I save at the bank that says “Jesus Saves” here!        

Chorus

 

Now the Bank bailout’s billions of bucks

Or they’re going under and we’re sitting ducks

Is the whole US government going to bust?

Then I’m glad that our dollars say “In God We Trust”!

Chorus/Bridge

 

My IRA’s and Keogh’s do not make me much

My investments and savings are no interest ruts

It’s confusing!  All these huge foreclosures and notes

I’ll just get me a micro-loan, buy me some goats!

Chorus

 

Each time I go in, there’s new faces around

Turnover’s so fast, can my money be found?

Friedman’s Chicago School’s economics have crashed

And Bernie Madoff has made off with my cash!!

Chorus/Bridge

 

The bank, the bank, the bank, the bank, the bank   – (to fade out)
