To "It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas"

(Words and Music by Meredith Willson)

Parody Lyrics by Marcy Shaffer

Arranged by Greg Hilfman

IT'S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT MORE RISKLESS.
AT LEAST FOR GUYS LIKE ME.
IT'S NEAT BEING THIS ELITE.
THE GOVERNMENT MAKES IT SWEET.
COMPLETE WITH ROBBER BARON GUARANTEE!
 
IT'S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT MORE RISKLESS.
CHILL HAS TURNED TO THRILL!
WE CONVERGED, NOW OUR FLANKS GIVE THANKS.
WE MERGED ALL THE RANKS OF BANKS.
THAT WE DID NOT KILL!
 
WHEN LIQUIDITY TRAPS 
SLID TO MAPS OF COLLAPSE?
WE HEEDED TREASURY'S PLEAS.
LEAPT TO THE CALL, AND ADEPT-ER THAN ALL. 
KEPT THE STALL FROM BECOMING A FREEZE.
AND SINCE WHAT CRACKED IS STILL INTACT?
WE ACT LIKE REGENCIES! 
 
IT'S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT MORE RISKLESS.
UNEMPLOYMENT'S POPPED!
THOUGH I KNOW HOW THE BLEEDING HEARTS.
SHOW THEIR MISLEADING CHARTS.
NEIGHBOR, ALL MY LABOR COSTS HAVE DROPPED!
 
IT'S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT MORE RISKLESS.
BONUSES RESTORED!
WHEN UP YON IN THIS MONARCHY. 
ECHELON-ESTY, YOU SEE.
IS ITS OWN REWARD!
 
PARADES OF MORE AIDES 
FOR HIGH FREQUENCY TRADES.
SINCE BRIGADES WANT INTO OUR POOLS.
INCENTIVE RETENTIVE 
FOR THOSE THOUGHT INVENTIVE. 
WHO PLOT AUGMENTIVE NEW TOOLS. 
SO ABSTRUSE THAT WE'RE LET LOOSE 
TO GO PRODUCE NEW RULES!
 
IT'S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT MORE RISKLESS.
AS WE NURSE THE PURSE.
THERE'S SUCH FUN IN DISASTERING.
WHEN YOU'VE WON THE MASTERING.
OF THE UNIVERSE!
 
THERE'S SUCH FUN IN DISASTERING.
WHEN YOU'VE WON THE MASTERING.
OF THE UNIVERSE!
