The Lyrics

The tourniquets that President Obama's EMTs apply to stem bailed-out corporate bleeding often turn out to be nooses. The incentives for high earners, repatriation of foreign assets and jobs, worker benefits, hiring and philanthropy in the stimulus bill and proposed budget are all negative, as are the caps on executive compensation, conference expense and carbon emission. See High Society for original duet lyrics.
Who wants to be a CEO? I don't.
Follow the rules of BHO? I won't.
Who wants the bother of a higher tax rate?
A higher tax rate is something I'd hate.
Who wants to donate to campaigns? I don't.
Who wants to give up corp'rate planes? I won't.
Who wants to be a PR fool too?
I don't. And I won't 'cause all I want's my due.

Who wants to bow to Barney Frank? I don't.
With my stock options in the tank? I won't.
Take one last journey on my Atlantic yacht?
Must I sell my yacht and pay sailors naught?
Drive in my fancy foreign car? I can't.
Bid its mechanics au revoir? They'll rant!
Who wants a private landing field too?
I don't. And I won't 'cause I'd pay union crew.

Who wants to answer to Chris Dodd? I don't.
And show him homage like a god? I won't.
Who wants to hide behind a tenured lawyer?
A tenured lawyer do I want? No sir!
Who wants a chance to risk a bet? I do.
And keep the profit that I get? I do.
Who would explore free markets anew?
I hope that you'll vote 'cause all I want's no Blue.
Now we must trust politicians rather than entrepreneurs to cure this economic mess. Hope for change left to spend! I'm at bjmitchel@att.net for feedback.

Don't know the OS, but a great write.

It is scary indeed to see Congressman Frank and Senator Dodd wield influence on the House and Senate banking committees. This is an excellent spoof, but probably something they would never understand.

Great stuff :-) Though I have to admit, that when I read the title, I thought:

Who wants to be a CEO? I do.
Earning a mega-load of dough? I do
Who wants a pension of a million bucks?
A million bucks? Is that all.. that sucks
Who wants a shield from money pains? I do
Who wants to fly a corporate plane? I do
Who wants a golden handshake too?
I do.. yes, I do.. but now I'm broke. Boo hoo.
