2013 just after i wrote it then promptly forgot it



song version (varies)

Dm                                                 C
the Bible tells us not to steal - it’s there in black and white

                                                       Dm     C                Dm
our laws are based upon it too: do not do wrong - do right

      Dm                                                                 C
yet somehow since these laws were writ we've seen the system fail

                                                                            Dm       C       Dm
but things will change for all the best when the bankers go to jail

                G                                                            Dm
when the bankers go to jail my friends, when the bankers go to jail
          G                                                   Dm
we’ll all be dancing in the streets, we'll laugh and sing as well
          G                                          Dm
we’ll finally see justice done, god damn them all to hell
          Bb                                                           Dm       C       Dm
we’ll hear the bells of freedom ring when the bankers go to jail


if things were as they ought to be when any business fails
investors take a haircut amid their tears and wails

but in the twisted system our politicians hail
the working folk pay all the bills and loose their jobs as well

chorus

well it seems the banks keep growing - the banker's pay as well
no matter what they steal from us they never seem to fail

but one day soon we'll take a stand - we workers will prevail
we'll tar and feather all of them and send them all to jail

chorus




the original poem

the Bible tells us not to steal
it’s there in black and white
our laws are based upon it too
do not do wrong - do right

but somehow since these laws were writ
we've seen the system fail
but things will change for all the best
when the bankers go to jail

when the bankers go to jail my friends
when the bankers go to jail
we’ll finally see justice done
when the bankers go to jail

when the vampire squid has been deep-fried
in the slime of Bernank’s words
when politicians tell the truth
and not be lying turds

when "austerity" applies to them
and fairness does prevail
we’ll finally see justice done
and the bankers go to jail

when the bankers go to jail ee-hah
when the bankers go to jail
we’ll all be dancing in the streets
when the bankers go to jail

if all was as it ought to be
when any business fails
investors take a haircut
amid their tears and wails

but in our mean kleptocracy
that the MSM does hail
the working class pay all the bills
and no banker goes to jail

when the bankers go to jail dear God
when the bankers go to jail
the haircuts will be number ones
when the bankers go to jail

we’re predators i must admit
it’s human nature too
to seek a better living for
our wives and children too

but animals we’re not you see
it not just fine detail
we keep the law, control ourselves
and the bankers go to jail

yes you bankers go to jail you thieves
all you bankers go to jail
you’ll be some brother’s jail-house bitch
when you bankers go to jail

you may think it’s a silly dream
to think of their demise
they’re oh so very powerful
and every banker lies

but one day soon we’ll overthrow
and have them by the tail
we’ll tar and feather all of them
and send them all to jail

when the bankers go to jail for good
when the bankers go to jail
we’ll hear the bells of freedom ring
when the bankers go to jail


(maw! Dan'l done shot his self a banker wid his gun maw. Maw! I done gotta shoot a banker too maw.

You watch yawself Brad. Dem bankers is nasty nasty things and th' best thung yawl can do is haul off and shoot dem from a goodly distance wid yo shotgun - ya hear me boy?)
