Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Drunken traders are far more dangerous than drunken sailors - or tailors. See here a story how a drunken stock trader managed to upset the oil future. And prices.
What shall we do with a drunken trader
who is unruly as a pirate raider
causing mayhem just like Darth Vader
earlye in the morning?
Oil price - yes, he got rising
futures - got reassizing
whole world - he had surprising
earlye in the morning

Banish him away from exchange market
both at the Net and stockhouse parquette
Sack him and make him a sanctions target
earlye in the morning
Lock him - in home for sleeping
tell him - it's poo he's deep in
Shrug him - if he's weeping
earlye in the morning

Make him unemployed until he's sober
let him sleep his stupor over
Get reposessed his brand new Rover
earlye in the morning
Ignore him - if he is whining
employ him - in shoe shining
no more - market mining
earlye in the morning!

If only your subjects were as productive as you. A few years of breaking rocks in the hot sun would fix them. Some clever rhyming, and risky ones too. That shows confidence.

555 for this one! Now, if we could just sort out the government and the bankers as well, I think we'll be tidy... :)
