THE BANKS ARE OUT OF LINE AGAIN

THE BANKS ARE OUT OF LINE AGAIN
(To tune of, “I Wish I Were in Love Again,” by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart)

Sirs Dodd and Frank
proposed a bank,
If caught self-trading, would receive a spank.
And while we’re waiting for the rules to crank,
The banks are out of line again

The banks complain,
“This isn’t Spain!”
Tough regulations were the root of pain.
Yes, I’d believe that, if I had no brain.
The banks are out of line again

Making bets.
Incurring debts.
Time forgets, that,
bankers had to be bailed-out.

So, what’s so new?
That’s what banks do.
But, take our money and then say F-you.
Now Volcker’s fuming ‘cause,
The banks are out of line again.

Reprise
Back to school.
Best not fool,
with Volcker’s rule, lest,
You want another disaster.

But banks have clout.
They’ll whine and pout.
And congress listens when the big-bucks shout.
The foul pot’s stewing, and,
The banks are out, of line again.
