took a trip around the world in a new Learjet.
Champagne for breakfast and caviar for tea;
when recession hit, lived a life of luxury.
Within a double-dip, lived a life of luxury.
Everything on credit,
no money was required;
mortgaged off the pea-green boat,
sold it short ten times,
creating first world problems
of a global crisis kind
and when it came to pass
that the economy was fucked,
they developed Teflon shoulders
and tried to pass the buck
onto all the working people
whose pay was less each day,
then took away their benefits
while giving bankers bonuses,
forced the unemployed onto Workfare schemes
and didn’t give a toss about the Bong-tree lands,
just plunged them into ever-deeper debt,
just plunged them into ever-deeper debt.
