The Lyrics

They’re groomed to pay up, tithin’ out,
goin’ for a leech’s tout.
Sleazers stalkin’, findin’ boons.
Schmucks keep facin’ fiscal doom.

Senseless ones are handin’ out
swag till there is a cache rout.
Handin’ out big wads o’ cash,
mope when bank accounts have crashed.

Along comes Grifter Good Tips,
crook spinning spiels from lips.
Connin’ people to give up cash hordes;
funds are wasted—lout conman has scored.
Grifted tools;
grifted fools.

They’re groomed to pay up till they’re out.
Broke chumps wrecked in fiscal rout.
Sleazers stalkin’, findin’ goons.
Schmucks facin’ financial doom.

Grifted fools; grifters drool.
Findin’ scores.
Grifts will leave the rubes parted from dimes…
find they’ve been gelt-gored.
Grifted fools….
