... when I tried to post it from Google, and it failed.

With apologies to The Crystals...

The news came on a Tuesday and my heart stood still,
Da doo World-Com -Com, da doo World-Com.
Accounting statements kinda made me ill,
Da doo World-Com -Com, da doo World-Com.
Yes, my heart stood still -
Yes, it made me ill...
And then it came to me,
Da doo World-Com -Com, da doo World-Com.

I suddenly remembered 'bout a guy called Lay,
Da doo En-ron -ron, da doo En-ron.
And the fussin' about his hundred million pay -
Da doo En-ron -ron, da doo En-ron.
Yes, this guy called Lay,
Yes, a hundred million pay...
And then it came to me,
Da doo En-ron-ron, da doo En-ron.

Andersen's were auditors that time before,
Da doo En-ron -ron, da doo En-ron.
Put two and two together to make ninety-four,
Da doo En-ron -ron, da doo En-ron.
Yes, that time before,
Two twos are ninety-four,
And then it came to me,
Da doo En-ron-ron, da doo En-ron.

And now they've overstated WorldCom's profits too,
Da doo World-Com -Com, da doo World-Com.
Laundering the balance sheets is nothing new,
Da doo World-Com -Com, da doo World-Com.
Yes, it's WorldCom too,
Yes, it's nothing new,
That's how it seems to me,
Da doo World-Com -Com, da doo World-Com.

Now I'd invested big-time in these companies,
Da doo World-Com -Com, da doo En-ron,
Those bastards gonna pay that brought me to my knees -
A dirty bomb-bomb-bomb, a dirty bomb.
Yeah, these companies -
I am on my knees,
But now they're gonna pay -
A dirty bomb-bomb-bomb, a dirty bomb. [fade out - BOOM!]
