A Boss's Life for Me Chantey

by Aaron DeLee

Yo ho, yo ho, a boss's life for me.
They launder money, they scam and screw.
Snort up good fellows, yo ho.
They forge, they filch and watch interest accrue.
Snort up good fellows, yo ho.

Yo ho, yo ho, a boss's life for me.
They pirate and hustle, they fleece and sail.
Snort up good fellows, yo ho.
Double-cross, defraud and even blackmail.
Snort up good fellows, yo ho.

Yo ho, yo ho, a boss's life for me.
They downsize and dismiss, layoff and fire.
Snort up good fellows, yo ho.
Yet net a nice severance when they retire.
Snort up good fellows, yo ho.

They're moguls and princes, they're Industrialists.
Snort up good fellows, yo ho.
They're tycoons and bigwigs, they're Capitalists.
Snort up good fellows, yo ho.

They’re invulnerable, clad in fine suits,
Snort up good fellows, yo ho.
They float, when fired, on golden parachutes,
Snort up good fellows, yo ho.
Yo ho, yo ho, a boss's life for me.
