The Lyrics

The Enron Man

Who says invest and does it best, baby it's the Enron man
Who's gonna steal your dough, you know baby it's the Enron man
He can take your cash, he can make you cry
He will bring you down then he'll say good bye
Audits keep him goin' for a few more days
Bankruptcy by Mr. Lay.

Time after time commits a crime, baby it's the Enron man
Who makes the dough, you know, listen it's the Enron man
Then he claims your fine and you see his face
And you think that Lay will keep you safe.

Shreading keeps him solvent for a few more days
Accountants don't know what to say.

Then you listen to his story and you think that it's ok
Put your life savings into his 401K
Then you find your nest egg empty and your dreams
have all but gone and you're alone.

Lay will take your cash, he can get you high
He will bring you down then he'll say good bye
Enron's a disaster, but no one seems to know
Where did all the profits go.

Then the lights begin to flicker and the bulidings locked up tight
His voice begins to falter and accountants start to fight
But Lay says we shouldn't blame him, he's just the CEO
He didn't know, just didn't know.
