Bohemian Financial Rhapsody

04/01/2008 05:12 am ET | Updated May 25, 2011

Is this the real price?
Is this just fantasy?
Financial landslide
No escape from reality

Open your eyes
Look at your buys and see
I'm now a poor boy
High-yielding casualty

Because I bought it high, watched it blow Rating high, value low
Any way the Fed goes doesn't really matter to me, to me

Mama - just killed my fund
Quoted CDO's instead
Pulled the trigger, now it's dead
Mama - I had just begun
These CDO's have blown it all away

Mama - oooh
I still wanna buy
I sometimes wish I'd never left Goldman at all

---

I see a little silhouette of a Fed
Bernanke! Bernanke! Can you save the whole market?
Monolines and munis - very very frightening me!
Super senior, super senior
Super senior CDO - magnifico

I'm long of subprime, nobody loves me
He's long of subprime CDO fantasy
Spare the margin call you monstrous PB!
Easy come easy go, will you let me go?
Peloton! No - we will not let you go - let him go
Peloton! We will not let you go - let him go
Peloton! We will not let you go - let me go will not let you go
Let me go (never) Never let you go - let me go Never let me go - ooo
Oh mama mia, mama mia, mama mia let me go S&P had the devil put aside
for me for me, for me, for me

So you think you can fund me and spit in my eye?
And then margin call me and leave me to die
Oh PB - can't do this to me
PB Just gotta get out - just gotta get right outta here

Ooh yeah, ooh yeah
No price really matters
No liquidity
Nothing really matters - no price really matters to me

Any way the Fed goes...
