Proud To Be A Banker lyrics


Album: C'est Cheese

I'm proud to be a banker
I'm proud to be a banker
I'm proud to be a banker
'Cause I get to play with other people's money

I'm having a lousy day
I burned my toast and spilled my coffee
On my best shirt. So I had to change and then
I'm late for work. So I rush into the meeting
Where they are discussing what my future in the corporation is
And I don't really give a damn
But I don't have another job
And so I lie and say

I'm proud to be a banker
I'm proud to be a banker
I'm proud to be a banker
'Cause I get to talk to stimulating people

I open up my mail
Hoping that it's not a bill but it's from the bank
Saying that I have only 20 hours to go
To contribute to my RRSP for this tax year
So I run down to the bank but there's a 20-mile lineup
And I'm yelling and I'm screaming
And I'm not wearing any pants ah ah ah ah ahhhhh

I'm proud to be a banker
I'm proud to be a banker
I'm proud to be a banker
'Cause I get to screw with other people's lives

I took out 40 bucks
From the automatic teller. It told me
That I couldn't 'cause I just had 10
But that can't be 'cause I just got paid on Friday
So I go down to the bank, wait an hour in the lineup
And I'm talking to the teller
She says "Wait I'll get your last month's statement"
She comes back in 7 hours
Says I've got some interest charges and a cheque from Uncle Bill
That bounced and so they'll have to charge me 40 bucks for that
And for the box I never opened and I don't have overdraft protection
And I think I'll die before I pay off all that I owe and I don't even
Own a car

I'm pleased to be a banker
I'm proud to be a banker
I'm pleased to be a banker
'Cause I get to play with other people's money

(HE'S A BANKER)
Would you please endorse this cheque?
(HE'S A BANKER)
Do you have any assets?
(HE'S A BANKER)
You should buy you shouldn't rent
(HE'S A BANKER)
The cheque will cost you fifty cents
(IT WILL COST YOU FIFTY CENTS)
(He's a banker and he says
that it will cost you fifty cents
He's a banker and he says
that it will cost you fifty cents)
(IT WILL COST YOU FIFTY CENTS)
