Parody Lyrics by Marcy Shaffer

Arranged by Greg Hilfman

DEAR MR. GREENSPAN: 
I'D LIKE TO INQUIRE.
AYN RAND. 
WHY WAS IT SHE LIT YOU ON FIRE?
NOTIONS SHE WOVE. 
YOU STROVE TO MAKE ARCHETYPAL.
LIKE: SELF-REGULATION WAS ALL FOR THE GOOD.
GOVERNMENT OVERSIGHT? 
THE DEADEST OF WOOD.
CURIOUSLY, FURIOUSLY, 
YOU BECAME HER DISCIPLE.
 
HOW'D YOU TAKE 
YOUR CONVICTIONS?
FROM A FLAKE
WHO WROTE FICTIONS?
A HOTSHOT LIKE YOU.
DESERVES A POTSHOT OR TWO.
WALKING IN THE CINDERS OF AYN RAND.
 
LAY-OFFS UP.
HIGHER PRICES.
YOU'RE LIKE: "YUP.
THERE'S A CRISIS."
WELL, I'M KIND OF BUGGED.
THAT ATLAS JUST SHRUGGED.
WALKING IN THE CINDERS OF AYN RAND.
 
WHEN YOU LED THE FED, OH, MR. GREENSPAN.
CUT FROM LIBERTARIAN-LIKE CLOTH.
DID YOU EVER DREAD WE'D SEE A LEAN SPAN?
AND DID YOU JUST COMPARE YOUR DREAD TO "FROTH"?
 
WHAT YOU HYPED OUT OF HER, PLUS.
WHAT HAS WIPED OUT THE SURPLUS.
AGHAST MASTERS FRET.
AT THE BLAST THAT YOU SET.
WALKING IN THE CINDERS OF AYN RAND.
 
DID YOU GO TO JOE STIGLITZ, MR. GREENSPAN?
THAT JOE WHO HAS A NOBEL TO HIS NAME?
OR SCREEN A TEENY BIT OF ROUBINI?  
FOR A KEEN SCAN.
OF THE WOE YOU OWE YOUR OLDEST, COLDEST, FLAME?
 
YOU WERE ONE OF HER MEMBERS.
NOW YOU'RE ONE OF HER EMBERS.
NO JOKE WHEN YOU CHOKE.
ON MIRRORS AND SMOKE.
WALKING IN THE CINDERS OF AYN RAND.
IT'S SHOCKING IN THE CINDERS OF AYN RAND.
WALKING IN THE CINDERS OF AYN RAND.
