O Danny Boy
"Oy Bernie boy, a Ponzi you've been a scheming
From Palm Beach up to Park Avenue
The good times are gone, and all your clients are steaming
'Tis you, 'tis you must to the big house go and we all must watch and smile
But come ye back after the judge has read the sentencing memo
And when the court room's hushed to hear how long you'll go
'Tis we'll be here lurking in the shadows
Oy Bernie boy, oy Bernie boy, we hate you so.
And if you come, when all the other dodgy Wall Street hedge funds are dying
And their NAVs are red as red well may be
You'll come and find the place where all asset managers are lying
And kneel and say an "Alpha" there for me.
And the markets shall hear, tho' soft you tread above
And all those Wall Street Ponzi schemes will warm and sweeter be
If you'll not fail to tell the judge about foolish human greed
We'll simply sleep in peace until the next big Ponzi scheme is seen.
