Did you think we would lay down and die? Oh no, not I back to 745 As long as Barclays is by our sides, I know I’ll stay alive I’ve got all my life to lead I’ve got my family to feed And I’ll survive at 745, hey hey It took all the MONEY WE had Not to fall apart Kept trying hard to mend The pieces of my broken CORP. And I spent SUNDAY NIGHT Just feeling sorry for myself I WANTED TO cry But now Bob Diamond is my guy!

A+…this is going to the AF hall of fame. Willy
i found this one in Nov when citi got rid of prince First I was Chief counsel, And then the CEO, I pinned red umbrellas in my suit, But the shares they moved so slow, Investment banking was doing well, ECM made cash to burn, I was riding the financial markets, Hoping there’ll be no downturn, And then the dance, Began to slow, All the hedge funds pulled their cash, nd the institutions began to follow, And now my share price is in the pits, Massive writeoffs are what I see, I don’t want no shareholders, Can’t they just stop bothering me?!? They say “go on now go”, “walk out the door”, “Just turn around now, 'cause you’re not welcome anymore” “ Weren’t you the one who tried to stick to the strategy, That read that if you get advised by us, we’ll throw some debt in there for free” I should have split the firm apart, I should have sold it bit by bit, Like all the analysts told me, Now it’s all just gone to shit, At least I’ve got my options when I leave, Although they don’t amount to much today, But once I’m gone the price will soar, And I’ll get my sky high pay day.
Well done. At least now all you Lehman people have some hope for your jobs. I am happy for you all.
this is hysterical - what we needed to end these past few weeks. hope many of your lehmans are able to give bob diamond a big smacker.
