 To the tune of "When I was a lad…" from HMS Pinafore.

Sir George:

When I was a lad I ran Quantum.

We traded in the Dollar and the German bund.

Then I bet against the Pound with such great glee

That I made a billion overnight so famously.

Chorus:

He made a billion overnight so famously.

Sir George:

I wiped up the floor with the BOE

And now I have opinions on the whole world scene!

Chorus:

He wiped up the floor with the BOE

And now he has opinions on the whole world scene!

Lord El:

At the IMF I made such a mark

That I went from Smith Barney straight to Harvard Yard.

With some great timing, I quickly left that job,

And now I'm here at PIMCO where we own the bond.

Chorus.

And now he's here at PIMCO where they own the bond.

Lord El:

I got myself to PIMCO so skillfullee

And now I have opinions on the whole world scene!

Chorus:

He got himself to PIMCO so skillfullee

And now he has opinions on the whole world scene!

Sir George and Lord El together:

We give our interviews in expensive suits

And boggle all the doctors at the institutes.

We're working on the Fed and the ECB

And winding up the Germans oh so skillfullee!

Chorus:

They're winding up the Germans oh so skillfullee!

Sir George and Lord El together:

We're winding up the Germans so skillfullee

And talking our own books against the whole world scene!

Chorus:

They're winding up the Germans so skillfullee

And talking their own books against the whole world scene!
