Offshore Banking Business - Lyrics

Bermuda in the Bahamas
Front street Hamilton
They doin' more than growing bananas
They got a tax dodge going on
Offshore banking business
International crime
Offshore banking business
Happening all the time

Banks and corporations are registered
And operating there
They don't employ any local staff
And I don't know if you are aware
One American sitting at a desk
With a plaque outside on the wall
Huh, you know that's what they call

Offshore banking business
Some kind of financial thing, yeah
Offshore banking business
The man with the money
He's gonna swing up there from the tree

You got some pennies and the pounds
Your head's going round
With a bunch of figures
That your mind can't compound
I say as I would say
Who wants to know?
I would say I wanna know
Who's got my money?
Who's got my sense?
Why is everybody trying to steal my pence?
Guy in the city
Guy in the news
Everybody giving me the financial blues, yeah

(I accuse)
Who's behind this operation?
I'll tell you you what I know
(And I know more than the rest)
Newspaper barons and oil tycoons
Watching their money grow
It's not an idle rumour nor no scandal talk
All of the profits are washed through
Curacao, Panama, New York

Offshore banking business
You better watch your chin, Jim
Offshore banking business
IMF never gonna let you in with this
Offshore banking business
You think it's just money that counts
Offshore banking business
Well sure gonna come mash up your bank account.
