Apologies to The Proclaimers

To the tune of "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)"

We’re the Big 3, 

The Big 3 of the Big 3

We’re the three CEOs who fucked shit up for you

But don’t you worry 

Because we know we’re gonna be

We’re gonna be the men who grovel up for you

Okay that first time, 

Yes, we prob’ly shoulda drove

We shoulda drove the cars we try to sell to you

We’re driving this time

Yeah, you know we’re gonna drive

We’re gonna be the guys who drive a deal for you

But we would fly 500 miles

And we would drive 500 more

Just to be the men who begged for cash 

From Congress like a dirty whore

We’ll cut our sal’rys, 

Yes, we know we’re gonna be

We’re gonna be the men who sacrificed for you

And when the money 

Floods in from taxpayers too

We’ll buy some mansions somewhere nice in Malibu

As for our bonus, 

Yeah, we know we’re gonna get

We’re gonna get that cash whatever else we do

When we retire,

Well, we know we’re gonna be

On our estates so very far away from you

But we would fly 500 miles

And we would drive 500 more

Just to be the men who begged for cash 

From Congress like a dirty whore

da da da (da da da)

da da da (da da da) Da Da Da Dun Diddle Un Diddle Un Diddle Uh Da  da da da (da da da) da da da (da da da) Da Da Da Dun Diddle Un Diddle Un Diddle Uh Da 

When we cut costs, 

Well, you know we’re gonna cut

We’re gonna cut the jobs of lots and lots of you

It’s ironic, 

Cuz you know we’re gonna say

We need the cash because we’re "looking out for you"

When we're bailed out, 

Well, you know we're gonna be

We're gonna be the men that some will call "astute"

We're not worried

Cuz you know we're gonna be

We're gonna be the men with golden parachutes

We're gonna be the men with golden parachutes

But we would fly 500 miles

And we would drive 500 more

Just to be the men who begged for cash 

From Congress like a dirty whore

da da da (da da da)

da da da (da da da) Da Da Da Dun Diddle Un Diddle Un Diddle Uh Da  da da da (da da da) da da da (da da da) Da Da Da Dun Diddle Un Diddle Un Diddle Uh Da 

But we would fly 500 miles

And we would drive 500 more

Just to be the men who begged for cash 

From Congress like a dirty whore
