The Dismemberment Plan Gets Rich (The Dismemberment Plan)

In early '95, well, we got the dough so we could diversify Had a lot of money up in bioweapons which has low liquidity Sold a lot of Krugerrands and rubles to a bunch of really weird Swiss guys And we were rockin' Took a little while but we finally got to get our groove on We were running weapons to a Cuban in Miami that just kind of flaked on us Then there was the time I called John Gotti up and I asked him if his fridge was running Well, he can laugh about it now We can laugh about it now! oh oh oh oh yeah yeah yeah yeah Yeah, yeah, yeah... Finally broke it open with the telecom and real estate in Asia With a little luck we got fur markets in South America Took a little longer with tin and amethyst in Zimbabwe (a real old boys' network) Got nine satellites in orbit, that helped coordination Opened up affiliates in Nagasaki, Venice and Antananarivo Joe got caught aboard a boat with seven tons of opium In the Singapore harbor Color us embarrassed! oh oh oh oh yeah yeah yeah yeah Yeah, yeah, yeah... Well, finally the year 2000 comes and the Plan is looking aces Got that crib in the Alps and Jason did buy that helicopter Gave a quarter mil to the soundman Phil so he could run for Senate He lost in the primary But we still love him! Got a little tip about a ginger ale company from Canada Getting run into the ground by a trust fund kid that thought he could write songs Had a couple parties on his yacht and Eric kinda borrowed his girlfriend It's gonna be a very good year A very, very good year... oh oh oh oh yeah yeah yeah yeah Yeah, yeah -- the Dismemberment Plan gets rich!
