Fiat Fools (the lyrics)

As I mentioned in this morning’s Early Look, we have an army of you reading our work that believes in proactive risk management using real-time prices as leading indicators. We are looking for change in this business – and the change starts with being the change you want to see.

 

Below I have attached the most creative response to our call to arms, from a sharp Hedgeye subscriber.

 

Enjoy,

KM

 

 

Hi Keith,

 

I thought you would like – I put together a bailout version of Curtis Mayfield with a hint of hedgeye in it :) 

 

Sisters, Brothers  
Central Bankers And Their Backers
They're All Political Actors

Hurry, People Running From Their Worries
While The Judge And His Juries
Dictate The Law That's Partly Flaw.

Educated Fools

From-Uneducated Schools
Keynesian Fools

Bailing out is The Rule
Polluted Water In The Pool

And Obama’s Talking About hope
He Says Change is coming
He Says Change is here
He Says Don't worry

But They Don't Know There Can Be No Show
And If There's A Hell Below We're All Gonna Go
Everybody's Praying And Everybody's Saying
But When Come Time To Do
Everybody's Laying

Educated Fools

From-Uneducated Schools
Friedamite Fools

But They Don't Know
There Can Be No Show
If There's A Hell Below
We're All Gonna Go

 

Educated Fools

From-Uneducated Schools

Fiat Fools

 

Lord What We Gonna Do
If Everything I Say Is True
This Ain't No Way It Ought To Be
If Only All The Mass Could See

But Everybody Keeps Saying Don't Worry

 

 

Thanks,

Bennet
