    White boys stealing
    Millions everyday
    How much and for how long?
    No one can really say

    Stock manipulation
    Based on bogus earnings
    Corporate execs lie about this inflation
    Flat out larceny
    But they’ll never go to jail
    Won’t even see a police station

    Enron, Worldcom
    The list goes on and on
    Thousands now unemployed
    Retirement systems?
    No one is sure where the money is at
    Off shore accounts
    That’s how fat cats stay pfat

    Low life and crooked
    Hiding behind a Brooks Brothers suit
    A Coach leather attaché case
    Filled with other people’s loot

    White boys stealing
    Making each other rich
    Playing the phony money game
    Now ain’t that a b**ch

    Market unstable
    Or so it may seem
    White boys still stealing
    In spite of G-Dubya’s corporate swat team

    Who will be next?
    Who can one trust?
    One thing for sure
    When it comes to stealing millions
    It won't be one of us
