Other People's Money

Words & Music by Steve Gillette

Buy song


She said her ex has got a penchant for the art of arbitrage
He's got a mansion in the Hamptons with a seven car garage.
He made a lot of friends when he was Skull & Bones at Yale,
He's got an ego that's just too big to fail
And when he gets together with the boys down on Wall Street
They love to laugh and say we did it all with

Other people's money,
Other people's money.
We had a ball, we took the fall,
But it was other people's money, that's all.

There's so much about finance that I don't understand,
Must be the work of the invisible hand.
You got your QE, your Ponzi, your diminishing returns
While the pirate Morgan plunders, Goldman Sachs and burns.
He'll hide his life story in the quarterly reports
But he can't cover his naked shorts without

Other people's money,
Other people's money.
We had a ball, we took the fall,
But it was other people's money, that's all.

One time I tried to ask him what he thought about a system
That's robbing the poor man blind.
He said the people that mind don't matter
And the people that matter don't mind.

Just other people's money,
Other people's money
We had a ball, we took the fall,
But it was other people's money, that's all.
