Capital Is Wonderful
Capital Is Wonderful

Capital Is Wonderful

Capital is wonderful
When it works we make a pile
Capital is wonderful
When it fails, the taxpayer saves us

Money Monster had a virgin birth
Ascends to heaven, now rules the Earth
Mystical and immutable
Markets rise and Markets fall but

Capital is wonderful
When it works we make a pile
Capital is wonderful
When it fails, the taxpayer saves us

Trading in commodities
Gratifying our wants and needs
Causing havoc based on confidence
Amassing wealth by selling more than we bought ‘cos

Capital is wonderful
When it works we make a pile
Capital is wonderful
When it fails, the taxpayer saves us

Until credit falls on its own sword
Where regulation is a well-mocked word
Plough billions into our bonus pots
Just top us up ‘cos we don’t give a shit

Capital is wonderful
When it works we make a pile
Capital is wonderful
When it fails, the taxpayer bails us out
