Shine On You Crazy Dimon

pk.jpgPaul Kedrosky not only writes the top Infectious Greed blog, but he has also turned out to be no slouch as far as penning lyrics is concerned. Using Pink Floyd’s “Shine on Crazy Diamond” as base, here is his rewritten version of the criticisms and complaints JP Morgan’s Jamie Dimon is getting for the Bear Stearns deal.


Remember when you came from Banc One, you shone like the sun.
Shine on you crazy Dimon.

Now there’s a look in your eyes, like black holes in the sky.
Shine on you crazy Dimon.

You were caught in the crossfire of Joe Lewis and lockup,
blown on the legalese.

Come on you target for Hank’s laughter,
come on you raider, you legend, you banker, and shine!

You reached for Bear’s jugular too soon, you tried for the moon.
Shine on you crazy Dimon.

Threatened by shareholders at night, and exposed in the light.
Shine on you crazy Dimon.

Well you wore out your welcome with fairness opinions,
rode on the legalese.

Come on you trader, you slayer of brokers,
come on you bully, you banker, you piker, and shine!
