To be sung in a karaoke bar to Band Aid's "Do They Know It's Christmas?". Preferrably by a bunch of pinstripe bankers, with a video of starving Africans in the background

It's bonus time,
How much will we get paid ?

At bonus time,
We find out who made the grade.

And in this world of envy
It's no use being coy,
Suck up to your boss at bonus time.

But say a prayer,
Pray for a very large one

At bonus time, small cheques are just no fun.

There's a flash car outside my window,
A large house for which to pay,

I need a really big wad this bonus day.

The ex-wife wants more money,
And the kids they need new gear.

Please God give me a huge bonus again this year!

But there won't be too much joy in equities this bonus time
Things will be pretty tight again I fear (Yeah)

Markets have been very flat,
And you can't do much with that.

Will they know it's bonus time at all ?

Here's to us over in fixed income,
Equities will surely have no fun.

Will they know it's bonus time at all ?

Feed my ego

Feed my ego

Feed my ego

We'll let them know it's bonus time again

Feed my ego

We'll let them know it's bonus time again
It's bonus time,
How much will our boss get paid ?

At bonus time,
We soon find out how much he's made.

And at this time of sharing,
It's no use expecting much

He's bound to get the biggest wad this bonus time.

But say a prayer,
Pray that he gets none

At bonus time, let's hope that we'll have some.

He's taken all the credit,
For all that work we've done

Why should he get all the dosh this bonus time ?

He comes in late each morning,
Smokin' that large cigar.

Please God give him a zero bonus, he's the worse boss by far.

And there won't be much joy here again this bonus time,
If his cheque is 10 times as big as mine!

Our boss is such a tw.t,
Why can't the firm see that ?

He shouldn't get a bonus cheque at all.

And here's to us who did all the work,
Don't let our dosh end up with that berk.

He shouldn't get a bonus cheque at all.

Fire the loser,

He shouldn't get a bonus cheque at all.

Fire the loser,

He shouldn't get a bonus cheque at all.

Fire the loser,

He shouldn't get a bonus cheque at all................
And also, to the tune of Frank Sinatra's My Way...
And now, my cheque is here
And I can buy another mansion.

My friend, I'll say it clear,
You would like my great big pension.

I've lived a life that's full,
I've travelled first on every skyway
But oh, much more than that
I've got my mega-pay.

Staff, I've sacked a few,
But then again too many too mention
I did what I had to do,
To survive was my intention.

I schemed up to the top,
Each careful step along the byway,
And now I can relax,
For I've still got my pay.

Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew,
Our CEO almost found out what was true.
But through it all, when there was doubt,
I ate him up and spat him out,
I played the game, I acted sane,
And I've still got my pay.

I swore, I screamed and cried,
When my options went under water.
I shouted, I nearly died, when a trader dated my daughter.
To think, I've done all that,
And may I say in a sly way,
Oh yes, I'm still here,
And I've got my pay.

For what is a boss, what is his job ?
I know people think I'm just a slob.
But let me say what I truly feel,
Moving up took real skill.
The record shows, I ducked the blows
And I've still got my pay.

It is beyond my understanding how such highly educated people can say things as plainly offensive and stupid as that.

I'm embarassed to be going to LSE if it turns out people that make statements like this.

I guess people like you give it the name

'The London School of Investment *******.'

Are some things too serious to be the subject of humour and sarcasm?

I don't think so...

Where is the sarcasm in the OP comment? Nothing is too serious to be the subject of humour, but is humour simply laughing at them. It's like someone laughing at the victims of 7/7, there's no humour there.

Now now, you may not like the guy's political beliefs, but you can't deny that the image of pinstripe-stuited bankers singing about their bonuses juxtaposed with Bob Geldoff's shameless self-publicism together with the highly serious subject of african poverty is a good recipie for some laughs, if not at least a good fight.

Difference of political opinion isn't really the problem, the songs are actually quite funny. His comment about starving Africans is indicative of the degenerative nature of this forum, however. It's all to easy to insult behind a computer screen.

He seems to be becoming a bit of a caricature of himself.

Go listen to Simon & Garfunkel's version of Silent Night, with the juxtaposition of a day's news report full of misery. Get the picture?
