The Lyrics

Another number form the Credit Crunch Cabaret show. FSA is the Brit equivalent of the SEC HBOS is a major bank
Ooh ooh I bet you’re wishing that you knew
who spread those rumours that were so untrue
Was it the hedgies out in Singapore
That’s their game I think you know the score
But it took you by surprise or so you say,
when you found out yesterday


Don't you know that...
I sent it through the grapevine
one sweet email what a gold mine
Oh oh I sent it through the grapevine
Well a hundred mill will do me just fine
lovely money yeah


I know a man ain’t supposed to lie
Driving the price down so he can buy
Turning those HBOS shares to trash
Turning my lies into so much cash

But there just ain’t no other way
To make that old bear market pay

Because you know that
I sent it through the grapevine
one sweet email what a goldmine
Oh I sent it through the grapevine
Well a hundred mill will do me just fine
lovely money yeah


Don't you know...
I sent it through the grapevine
that sweet email was a goldmine
Oh I sent it through the grapevine
Ooh yeah a hundred mill will do me just fine
lovely money yeah

FSA has got no place to go
They wanna hear that whistle blow
I sent it through the grapevine
A hundred mill will do me just fine

lovely money yeah

Whoa, the pacing was WAAY off on this, it's almost like it was a completely different song or something. Heh heh. Actually, I'm relieved since I know this song way better than the Bee Gees one. Good stuff, I liked the "lovely money" part best.

Yes, the bear market does pay for some investors, doesn't it? Well done, Martha. It appears that the CCC show must have been a big success.

Thanks for the comment John. Yes the show was seriously good fun. It was combined with a launch party for of book on the Credit Crunch by a pal of mine. We may do it again soon

Really not very funny - Your trying to hard to fit the theme of your lyrics into a song that really doesn't work well with them. The pacing is pretty far off when compared to the original song. There really wasn't a lot of humor to it either, though I suppose I might think different if I was a investment banker.
