Fund Manager's Lament (Gamestop Song)

from All in This Together by Conor Ryan Hennessy

lyrics

When I's a boy there was a store called Gamestop
And as a kid it was everything to me
Little did I know when I was older
It was everything to the folks on wall street

What they do, they got together with their billions
To short the business they heartily agreed
but the thing about agreeing with a banker
Is that agreements tend to give way to their greed

Young men and women congregated on a forum
Wallstreetbets was the name of it I think
Filled with language that my working class is used to
rude and crude and blue and many other things

Those rapscallions got together them the notion
The institution thinks we're dumber than we think
They said to hell with all our savings we're a dumping
all our money into a market hated thing

And something happened it's absurd I'm proud to tell you
They're meager savings pooled together made a scene
The stock it soared, even more than a rocket
emoji on your phone or any other screen

Now the bankers had to close out their positions
Their horde of dollars once were strong but now are weak
Their only hope is raisin hell on all our TV's
Beggin' and pleadin' their case to the SEC

Don't shed a tear, don't let these cowards try to fool you
To enable an addiction is a sin
And these fund managers they have a gambling problem
with people's money they cut corners on a whim

I myself don't know much about the market
I myself have hope for you and me
I myself know working people are much smarter
Than many wealthy, dandy playboy claims to be

When I's a boy there was a store called Gamestop
And as a kid it was everything to me
Little did I know when I was older
It was everything to the folks on wallstreet
