 Go Tell it in Accountin' 

To "Go Tell It on the Mountain"

(Traditional)

Parody Lyrics by Marcy Shaffer

Arranged by Greg Hilfman

GO TELL IT IN ACCOUNTIN'!
THOUGH WE OWE BILLIONS HERE AND THERE.
SO DEADBEATS ARE A-MOUNTIN'.
AND FASB
* WAS IGNORED.
GO TELL IT IN ACCOUNTIN'!
BONUSES STILL, OH, WE WILL SHARE!
THIS FED IS LIKE A FOUNTAIN!
SO WE WILL BE RESTORED!
 

 [*FASB=Financial Accounting Standards Board]
 
WE USED TO BE SO CAUTIOUS.
AND RISK-AVERSE TO BOOT.
REDUCED TO GETTING NAUSEOUS.
AS OTHERS MADE THE LOOT.
THEN LAUNCHES OFF OUR HAUNCHES. 
INSPIRED US TO SEE.
IN PAUNCHES OF TRANCHES:
A SWAP-PORTUNITY!
 
GO TELL IT IN ACCOUNTIN'!
THOUGH WE OWE BILLIONS HERE AND THERE.
SO DEADBEATS ARE A-MOUNTIN'.
AND FASB WAS IGNORED.
GO TELL IT IN ACCOUNTIN'!
BONUSES STILL, OH, WE WILL SHARE!
THIS FED IS LIKE A FOUNTAIN!
SO WE WILL BE RESTORED!
 
THE MONEY WAS ASTOUNDING.
WE LIVED LIKE FEUDAL LORDS.
THEN SUBPRIME TOOK A POUNDING.
PRECLUDALING REWARDS.
THE FIRM BEGAN TO STAGGER.
THE WORM BEGAN TO TURN.
NOT ALWAYS DO YOU SWAGGER
WHEN YOU'RE DEEMED A GOING CONCERN.
 
GO TELL IT IN ACCOUNTIN'!
THOUGH WE OWE BILLIONS HERE AND THERE.
SO DEADBEATS ARE A-MOUNTIN'.
AND FASB WAS IGNORED.
GO TELL IT IN ACCOUNTIN'!
BONUSES STILL, OH, WE WILL SHARE!
THIS FED IS LIKE A FOUNTAIN!
SO WE WILL BE RESTORED!
 
AS DERIVATIVE DERIVERS.
THAT EVERYONE HAS CUSSED.
WHY ARE WE SURVIVORS
WHEN RIVALS BIT THE DUST?
WELL, HERE YOU FIND THE KIND OF BIND 
THOSE DEREGULATORS MISS.
WE'RE SO INTERTWINED THAT OUR UNWIND
COULD MAKE THIS 
THE ABYSS.
 
GO TELL IT IN ACCOUNTIN'!
THOUGH WE OWE BILLIONS EVERYWHERE.
WE'RE HEADED TO A MOUNTAIN
HOTEL THAT WE'VE ADORED.
GO TELL IT IN ACCOUNTIN'!
WE HAVE GOODWILL WE CAN'T IMPAIR. 
THIS FED, IT IS OUR FOUNTAIN.
AND WE WILL BE RESTORED!
 
GO TELL IT IN ACCOUNTIN'!
BONUSES STILL, OH, WE WILL SHARE!
THIS FED IS LIKE A FOUNTAIN!
SO WE WILL BE RESTORED!
