The Lyrics

So you want to be a stockbroker czar
In glist'nin' tower above Broadway?
Just get an online account, start,
Then learn to time the market each day.

Then, with your shares timed right,
On day-trading site,
No more need to check-kite.

Then it's time to move downtown,
Get office on a floor that looks way down.
Start your stockbroker company
That'll try to snare people to trade shares.

When those shares peak, then you
Rapidly check the charts
And sell; boy, you've got the smarts!

One day you have got riches and fame,
But the market's insane; it's a gambling game.
The money fast came; vanished just the same--
You lost your house and car,
Now you're swan-divin' far.

Drop-drop-drop-drop-drop-drop-drop-drop-drop-drop-drop-drop-drop-drop-drop. . .plat!
