Song Description

Written from the point of view of the banker who reveals his true feelings about himself and everyone else in the country.

Story Behind the Song

The credit crunch in 2008 exposed a lot of bankers for what they really are. Here's my ode to one of them.

Lyrics

Woke up each morning, caught the 6:45
'Mind the gap' if you want to survive
Strut the Mile - fifty beggars in tow
Two double whiskies and I'm ready to go.

I count the numbers as they fall through the floor
It's boom or bust, baby - you know the score.
Don't look for sympathy - I gave it away,
But I kept my whisky 'cause I'm happy that way

Woah, woah ......

I crossed the ocean - took the luxury line
To a hot little haven where they save me a dime
The folks back home have to live in the cold
Too many whiskies and it's taken its toll

Woah, woah ......

I've got my pension - I get six hundred grand
Won't give it back - it helps pay for the tan
Stop the press - I know what you're gonna say
I'm a single malt bastard but I'm happy that way

Woah, woah ......

Get up each morning, catch the 6:45
