The Lyrics

We can see that your scheming was pure Ponzi;
it’s time to throw you in the clink
and put the key up high on a shelf.
You were in it for ripped-off pelf; you must atone
for your theft and your lies and making victims moan.

Ponzi scheme penance is due…
you’re a scammer through and through
Your fake smile didn’t sway the judge for you.

In the clink is where you’re gonna do some time.
You told some amazing whoppers.
So, off to the penitentiary,
behind gray bars and against cold walls of stone.
Still you tried to convince us you did no wrong…
through your lies the court did see.

Ponzi scheme penance is due…
will be a long term for you,
quite a while in the slammer to ensue.

Ponzi scheme penance for you;
the time is long overdue.
Wipe that smile off your face and say, “Adieu.”

A slap on the wrist you want for your crime ways;
you schemed for mercy from the court…
continuation of mendacity.
Victims glad through your BS the judge did see…
sentenced you to years in penitentiary.
It is not free that you will be.

Ponzi scheme penance is due…
for all the victims you screwed…
quite a while for the wrong you did…still do.
