Bankers WE are the bankers who make our fortune in the city And thank you very much we are sitting very pretty You will never hear us singing the blues because, We still get big bonuses even when we lose Someday we'll retire to where we've stashed all our cash in case there is another banking crash Somewhere sunny but not too hot, Where we can land our jets not too far from our yaughts We really have to laugh it is so funny We got all this by gambling with other people's money Just to say thank you and show our appreciation We thought to a food bank we'd make a small donation But though we searched for ages and ages, We just couldn't find one in the yellow pages But please don't worry or shed any tears We understand a tin of spam will keep for many years.
