Too Big to Fail

To the tune of Tammy Wynette’s “Stand by Your Man

Sometimes it’s hard to be just people,
Keeping some respect for the man:
You’ll have hard times
He’ll have good times
Pulling stunts that you don’t understand.
They look illegal
But he acts so regal
And, after all, they’re hard to understand.
He’s not a gangster;
He’s just a banker,
And, furthermore, he is the man.

Too big to jail.
He keeps the money churning
Keeps lowly workers earning
When jobs are hard to come by.

Too big to jail.
We just can’t do without him
The biggest swindlers simply must prevail:
They’re too big to fail.

Too big to jail.
We just can’t do without them
The biggest swindlers simply must prevail:
They’re too big to fail.

David Martin
