The Tarp Song (MP3)
Zucker sings "I want some TARP, they're giving money away for free," while at the same time warning everyone to "tuck your head between your knees," and, "Now I know why they call it Fannie because their heads are up their a**".
Then there's the latest from Versusplus.com, a parody of the Christmas classic "Go Tell It On The Mountain" renamed "Go Tell It In Accountin'". The chorus goes like this:
Go tell it in accoutin'
Bonuses still, oh, we will share
This Fed is like a fountain
So we will be restored
FINALLY, Tim Jagemann (author of last week's "'Twas the Night Before Bailout"), comes this parody of Carly Simon's "Coming Around Again". Ok, bit of a stretch here, but, like I said, this is on peoples' minds. The video is the REAL song if you've never heard it.
Jagemann calls his parody "Coming Around Again--the Madoff Version". Here are some of the lyrics:
Profit teases, Return pleases, Bernie breezes in
So good on paper, So hypnotic, So bewildering You know nothing seems the same, But you were willing to play the game, Now there's no one else to blame
So don't care if you fall apart, No one else was very smart
You thanked your broker, Bought the jet plane, Kissed your cash good-bye
Now you break a window, Regret the day, Kiss your cash good-bye
