Whine On, You Crazy Diamond

Well ... the usual apologies to Waters (& Gilmour).  
It's sacrilege, I know.

Recall when Lehman’s got done ?
The sun shone from your bum
Whine on, you crazy Diamond !
Now there’s a look in your eyes 
Like you’ve seen your last rise 
Whine on, you crazy Diamond ! 

You were caught in the crossfire 
Of Labour and LIBOR 
Blown by the sheer greed 
Come on you target for ministers’ anger 
Come on you scapegoat, you bastard, you bankster, and whine ! 

You reached for the billions too soon 
You tried for the boom 
Whine on, you crazy Diamond ! 
Threatened by your hair going white 
And exposed as a shite 
Whine on, you crazy Diamond ! 

Well you buttered your barnet with Grecian 2000 
Rode on the sheer greed 
Come on you seer of grandiose visions 
Come on you puppet, you pirate, you prisoner, and whine ! 
[Saxophone … fade]

Sacrilege yes, but also piss-funny. Good work!

Acording to some orginal research I have seen too much strong hair dye can have neurological implications.

Superb, Nick; this deserves lunch. My shout.

Let me know if you have lost my particulars.

Nicely done, scans and everything. This is a bit at odds with your post of yesterday singing The City's praises. They are complete and utter charlatans, the lot of them, always have been, it's in the nature of banking.
