Working for the Stock Market

I’ve been working now for ages,
All my lifelong through,
Paying FICA on my wages
‘Til my golden years come due, ooh, ooh, ooh.
Now they want me to invest in
Stocks that brokers claim
Let me take an interest in
Republicans’ “ownership” aim.

Oh, Wall Street don’t you blow-ow,
Wall Street don’t you blow-ow,
Wall Street don’t you blow away my cash!
Wall Street don’t you blow-ow,
Wall Street don’t you blow-ow,
Wall Street don’t you blow my cash!

Cause there’s something fishy going on here,
Something fishy going on and o-on.
Something fishy with the numbers!
Fiddling away my cash!

Fee, fie, fiddly-io,
Fee, fie, fiddly-i-oooo.
Fee, fie, fiddly-i-OH!
Fiddling away my cash!
