The Goldman Connection

Kermit the Frog

Why are there so many

bonds trading through Goldman?

And who's on the other side?

Conflicts with clients?

They're only illusions.

And Goldman has nothing to hide.

So we've been told and some choose to

Believe it.

But I know they're wrong wait and see!

Someday we'll find it,

The Goldman Connection,

Abacus, Kinder Morgan, Taibbi!

Who said that every client

Would be heard and answered

When conflicts of interest arise?

Somebody thought of that

And someone believed it

Oh boy were they in for a surprise!

What's so amazing

That keeps us Goldman gazing?

What do we think we might see?

Someday we'll find it,

The Goldman Connection,

Abacus, Kinder Morgan, Taibbi!

Have you emailed “muppets”

To that guy Greg Smith?

Chancellor Strine knows your game.

Are these the vampire squids called

Goldman Traders?

I think they're one and the same.

I've heard it too many times to ignore it,

There're conflicts where none should be.

Someday we'll find it

The Goldman Connection

Abacus, Kinder Morgan, Taibbi!
