Humorous take on saving -- or not saving -- for retirement


I was up late watching Lou Dobbs
On the topic of lost jobs
When a different face came into view
A man of portfolios
With the promise of new growth
And a financial path straight and true
As he pointed at pie charts
Tales of investment kick starts
Retirement plans just for you
I tipped my recliner
Knowing nothing was finer
Than the strategy I had thought through.

My Lazy Boy [FOUR BEATS] 4-0-1K
Depositing nickels and quarters there
Every damn day
Beneath those
Faded plaid cushions
My best assets lay
Lint with no interest
My Lazy Boy [

Verse 2
Worked hard, no complaining
Paid my bills no delayin’
Just keeping my nose to the ground
You couldn’t call me lazy
Didn’t live life too crazy
Always happy to buy the first round.
But as for my savings
Retirement cravings
Can’t say that I paid it much due
The future’s uncertain
My bank account’s hurtin
But I have a plan tried and true.
