(Stairway to Heaven, DEBT Zeppelin IV)

There's a Banksta who's sure all that his bonus is pure
And he's buying the Stairway to Bailout Heaven.
When he gets there he knows, if the doors are all closed
With a scheme he can get what he came for.
Ooh, ooh, and he's buying the Stairway to Bailout Heaven.

There's a sign at the corner of Wall read it close to be sure
'Cause you know opaque words have three meanings.
Getting fleeced by pinstriped crooks, there's a jailbird who sings,
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven.
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it makes me wonder.

There's a feeling I get when I wish to invest,
And I'm trying to avoid innovative thieving.
In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke in the breeze,
And the voices of those taken by Ponzi scheming.
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it really makes me wonder.

And it's whispered that soon if we all call the Volcker tune
Then the piper will lead fear and greed to reason.
And a new day will dawn for those who buy to hold long
And the markets will echo with laughter.

If there's a bust in your hedge, don't be alarmed now,
It's just a spring clean for the market queen.
Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run
There's still time to change the trade you're hooked on.
And it makes me wonder.

Your head is humming and it won't go, in case you don't know,
The market piper's calling you to join him,
Well now laddy, can you hear the DOW blow, and did you know
Your bailout stairway lies on the whispering winds of greed and quantitative thieving.

And as we wind on down the mythical Alpha road
Our shadows taller than our NAV souls.
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines transparent white light and wants to show
How every get rich quick scheme can never turn to gold.
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last.
When all are one and one is all
To be a market jock and not a fool.

And he's buying the Stairway to Bailout Heaven.
