Lotteries Bring Us Little Snowdrops

Divest yourself of all your wealth!       [Apsley ]

The bilious broker cries       [Roland ]

Then seizes all our cash, by stealth       [Beefy ]

By lurings and by lies       [Roland ]

The promise of a prize       [P ]

And all across the trading floor       [Roland ]

The jobbers hawk their trash       [P ]

A little less, a little more       [Roland ]

But always needing cash       [Beefy ]

To stabilise their stash       [Roland ]

While, seated quietly in the box,       [Beefy ]

The bulls and bears await       [Roland ]

Aiming to outfox the fox       [P ]

And fix the starting-gate       [Roland ]

So penury's our fate       [Beefy ]
