The Lyrics

Greensill was a short-lived company active in the financial services sectors of Australia and Great Britain.
The old boss looks quite tame
As I try to shift the blame
And there to meet us are the three administrators.

Down the road I look, and there runs Rishi,
So well groomed he looks quite dishy.
It's good to draw down Greensill bridging loans.

Yes, the market defeats me,
Journalists try to beat me.
It's good to draw down Greensill bridging loans.

The paper trail is endless
Though the receptionist has gone
And there's the old spreadsheet that I used to work on.

On the 'phone I spoke to Dave and Matty,
Always helpful, seldom chatty,
It's good to draw down Greensill bridging loans.

Then awkward questions do astound me
From the three grey suits that now surround me
And I realize that I was always scheming.

For there's a hard drive holding stacks of data,
David wants to see me later,
Again we'll talk of Greensill bridging loans.

Yes my name's on the TV
But nobody wants to be me.
When they start to probe, they won't leave me alone.
The Christian names refer to David Cameron, an employee of the Greensill company, to Matt Hancock, and to Rishi Sunak. The latter two Members of Parliament served in the cabinet of Boris Johnson. Cameron and Johnson both served the UK as Conservative prime ministers, although Theresa May MP occupied that position over a period between their respective terms of office.
