Barney Frank — Banking Queen Lyrics

barney-frankThose listening to Rush Limbaugh regularly are familiar with Paul Shanklin’s parody to Abba’s Dancing Queen entitled Banking Queen.  As you are well aware, Shanklin wrote the lyrics in accordance with Barney Frank’s (Chairman of the House Banking Committee) position on housing  to entertainingly reveal his lax oversight which contributed to the financial crisis in the collapse of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.  Sung in a Barney Frank lisp , it has always been difficult for me to understand the words.  I went searching the Internet to find the written lyrics, but came up short.  I finally sat down, listened intently, replayed the song over and over and think that I have come up with the accurate lyrics to the parody.  Let me know if you hear anything different, but here they are:

Sung to Dancing Queen by ABBA

Banking Queen

Oooooooo

Oooooooooo

 

You can build.

You can buy.

Any house your heart desires.

Oo zero down.

 Financing.

 I am the banking queen.

 

Friday night and your cash is low.

I know a place that you can go.

Oh, get your house and use it.

 Go ahead abuse it.

 You can do anything.

 

Go out and have a fling.

 I am the banking queen.

Old and sweet didn’t do a thing.

 Banking queen.

 Don’t complain or you’ll hear me scream oh yeah.

 

You can build.

You can buy.

Any house your heart desires.

Oo zero down.

Financing.

 I am the banking queen.

 

Told the bankers hey you guys.

Make the loans or it’s your behind.

My friends at Fannie sure need it.

Do it my way or beat it

Why are the stocks crashing?

 

That doesn’t mean a thing.

I’m still the banking queen.

Never spanked for a single thing. 

Banking queen.

Don’t complain or you’ll hear me scream oh yeah.

 

You can build.

You can buy.

Any house your heart desires.

Oo, zero down

 Financing

I am the banking queen.

 Oooooooo

 I am the banking queen.

Oooooooo
