This quarter's worse than the last quarter.
This quarter's worse than any other.
This quarter's worse than the last quarter.
You'd better gird your loins they're offering pennies on the dollar for us.
This quarter's worse than the last quarter.
This quarter's worse than any other.
This quarter's worse and they're offering pennies! Pennies! Pennies on the dollar for us!

If only C-SPAN shows up you might be fine.
But your fortunes decline with each and every camera present.
So be reminded...
...You've never been very likeable, it's worse when you try.
So lie back and think of England, lean into the skid [Whatever]...
...You get my meaning.

So no, there's no calling in sick to this.
No, there's no rescheduling for later.
No, there's no pawning this off on someone else.
You're the exact right person to explain that...

...This quarter's worse than the last quarter.
This quarter's worse than any other.
This quarter's worse than the last quarter.
You'd better gird your loins they're offering pennies on the dollar for us.
This quarter's worse than the last quarter.
This quarter's worse than any other.
This quarter's worse and they're offering pennies! Pennies! Pennies on the dollar for us!

Cast aspersions at your peril, it's unappealing.
You lost your focus, coasted, turned your back and it all fell apart.
But employees, prostitutes, shareholders all need to be paid.
This has never been a game of love, so don't pretend.
That'd be unseemly.

So no, we're not going out after this.
No, the drinks won't be free.
No, I'm not implicating anyone,
I know the blame squarely lies with me and...

...This quarter's worse than the last quarter.
This quarter's worse than any other.
This quarter's worse than the last quarter.
You'd better gird your loins they're offering pennies on the dollar for us.
This quarter's worse than the last quarter.
This quarter's worse than any other.
This quarter's worse and they're offering pennies! Pennies! Nothing but pennies!
Pennies! Pennies! Bags of damn pennies!
Pennies! Pennies! Surrounded by pennies!
Let me, let me tell you about pennies:

Folks want hope.
They want faith.
They want a crystal.
Want a diamond,
Want a Tiffany.
But nobody, and I mean NOBODY, wants to fuck a penny.
They want hope.
They want faith.
They want a crystal.
Want a diamond,
Want a Tiffany.
But nobody, and I mean NOBODY, wants to fuck a penny.

This quarter's worse than the last quarter.
This quarter's worse than any other.
This quarter's worse than the last quarter.
You'd better gird your loins they're offering pennies on the dollar for us.
This quarter's worse than the last quarter.
This quarter's worse than any other.
This quarter's worse than the last quarter.
They're tearing us apart for the price of pennies on the dollar!
