The Lyrics

Henry Blodget is a celebrity stock analyst with a segment on CNBC. He was recently brutalized in a New York Times business section article.
They say he's a guru of technology
So they gave him a slot on CNBC
If yer int'rested in internet
He's who you gotta see
'Cuz Henry's not afraid of vol-a-til-i-ty
Henry, Henry Blodget
King of the cyber frontier

For years he's been recommending Amazon
Predicted the party would go on and on
Now clients are suing claiming they got conned
By Merrill Lynch's favorite telegenic blond
Henry, Henry Blodget
The man who don't know fear

He was going nowhere as a journalist
So he tried his hand as a stock analyst
He threw some darts and made up a list
Trouble was his recos were strictly hit and miss
Henry, Henry Blodget
The internet pioneer

For five happy years Henry had a ball
But then all the dotcoms had a great fall
Pets.com got buried and Yahoo's in a stall
Looks like Henry Dumpty's gonna tumble from the Wall
Henry, Henry Blodget
The yahoo of the year
