The Lyrics

Resubmission.
I never liked Mr. Ben Bernanke
And all his "wisdom" on banky, banky
Often times seemed cranky, cranky
If a doc would be quacky, quacky
Europe, Asia, the markets not tanking

I never liked Mr. Ben Bernanke
And all his "wisdom" on banky, banky
Often times seemed cranky, cranky
Reserve masturbation, wanky, wanky
Stat manipulation handy, handy

Often times he crossed the line (bad)
US economy did just fine
His predictions were overblown
His advice not struck in stone
The Almighty Dollar, the Almighty Dollar!

I never liked Mr. Ben Bernanke
And all his "wisdom" on banky, banky
Often times seemed cranky, cranky
Reserve masturbation, wanky, wanky
Stat manipulation handy, handy

I doubt his clout
All show...

Oh, yeah!

Often times he crossed the line (bad)
US economy did just fine
His predictions were overblown
His advice not struck in stone
The Almighty Dollar, the Almighty Dollar!

Brookings Institution, so what?

I never liked Mr. Ben Bernanke
And all his "wisdom" on banky, banky
Often times seemed cranky, cranky
Reserve masturbation, wanky, wanky
Stat manipulation handy, handy

Alarmist at times, was fine, so, so...

Ben Bernanke watched what was trending
All the capital we were spending
Other than that, he was just guessing!

Thanks John. Didn't know what to expect if people didn't know this guy or read his books.
