(Yes We Have No Bananas)


Sing along link:

There's a financial supermarket on our street
It's called CITI and its run by Pandit the geek.
And he keeps lots of dodgy things for the markets to eat
But you should hear him speak!
''When you ask him anything, he never answers "no".
He just "yes"es you to death, and as he takes Uncle Sam's bailout dough
He tells you
"Yes, we have lots of bananas
We have lots of bailout bananas for sale today.
We've got Smith Barney string beans, and securitized onions
collateralised cabbages, and private label scallions,
And all sorts of rotten over leveraged fruit and say
We have an old ashioned Solomon to-mah-to
And an off balance sheet po-tah-to
But yes, we have lots of bananas.
We have bailout bananas for sale today."

Business got so busy for him that he wrote home today,
"Send me Johnny and Chuckie and Sandy and Bobby; I need help right away."
When he got them in the store, there was fun, you bet.
Someone asked for a "mark down" and then the whole quartet
All answered
"Yes, we have bailout bananas
We have bailout bananas for sale today.
Just try those CDS coconuts
Those Alt-A walnuts and all sorts of asset backed doughnuts
They ain't got FIG nuts like these over at AIG
We'll sell you all kinds of red herring,
Dark brown, and ball-bearing.
And yes, we have bailout bananas
We have bailout bananas for sale today.
