No Banker Left Behind Lyrics

by Ry Cooder

My telephone rang one evening my buddy called for me
Said the bankers are all leaving better you come 'round and see
It's a startling revelation they robbed the nation blind
They're all down at the station no banker left behind

No banker no banker no banker could I find
They were all down at the station no banker left behind

Well the bankers called a meeting to the White House they went one day
They was going to call on the President in a quiet and a sociable way
And the afternoon was sunny and the weather it was fine
They counted out our money and no banker was left behind

No banker no banker no banker could I find
They were all down at the White House no banker was left behind

Well I hear the whistle blowing it plays a happy tune
The conductor's calling all aboard we'll be leaving soon
With champagne and shrimp cocktails and that's not all you'll find
There's a billion dollar bonus and no banker left behind

No banker no banker no banker could I find
When the train pulled out next morning no banker was left behind
No banker no banker no banker could I find
When the train pulled out next morning no banker was left behind
No banker no banker no banker could I find
When the train pulled out next morning no banker was left behind
No banker no banker no banker could I find
When the train pulled out next morning no banker was left behind
