Em       C          Dsus4  D         Em              C           CC DD

      

       Education,   micro-managed.                 MBA :       a doddle mastered.

 

       City-bound, Canary Wharf.            A cushy number, fluky bastard.

 

Em            C           C   D   G      C                 D          C  BBBB

 

       Banker bets and banker wins, never missed yet, for all his sins.

Em                     C       Dsus4 D             Em               C         CC DD

 

       Hedge funds, wraps and equities.                Lackeys, aides in fierce attendance.

 

       Trusts   and   gilts,   reserve currencies.       Liquid     gold   in safe ascendance.

 

Em            C           C   D   G      C                 D          C  BBBB

 

       Banker bets and banker wins, never missed yet, for all his sins.

Bridge

 

Am                                   C                                                 D                  Em  C Dsus4 D                                       

 

Treat myself to quality time, test a Porsche and snort a line, eat Hermione for lunch.                         

 

B                                        C                                                  D          BBBB

 

Set that glum PA a-jumping, book front-row tickets for something after we munch.

Em                    C            Dsus4 D                 Em                   C            CC DD

 

       Fast-tracked futures,    hard-nut traders.                     Feeding frenzy,     pigs a-troughing.

 

       Fuelled   by  forecasts, and hot share options.               Big fat bonus      in the offing.

 

       Draconian    calls    for regulation                      are drowned in latte with Starbucks muffin.

 

       Mortgage melt-down:   non est mea culpa.             Threatened exit,         stage left, laughing

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Em  D                    D    C      C                  D           B

 

Banker bets          and banker wins, never missed yet, for all his sins.

 

        D                    D C    G     C                 D            BBBB

 

Banker bets, cheque's in  the  post: not worth the ink it's  written in
