The Futures Market

by Keith Reid

Love’s a lie
And the truth’s a target
The well’s on fire
In the futures market
Greed runs riot
And the rumours spark it
It’s day for night
In the futures market

We’re clear of pork bellies
We’ve gone soft on jellies
Our stance is pro-active
Any chance is attractive

How much have you got
How soon can you pay
These are the questions
We face every day
Are you a winner
Do you understand
If you can’t deliver
You ain’t worth a damn

We’re focused and vocal
Commitment is total
We’re maxing the plastic
And skipping the fantastic
Positions are vital
Commissions delightful
Consumption is growing
Our prospects are glowing

Love’s a lie
And the truth’s a target
The well’s on fire
In the futures market
Greed runs riot
And the rumours spark it
It’s day for night
In the futures market
