The Billionaire March

Now billionaires do take the street
With silver shoes on happy feet,
And round the corner, see! they come!
A-marching to a golden drum!

Ba-boom! Ba-boom! Ba-boom! Ba-boom!
Now clap and cheer and give them room!
Today is what we’ve waited for—
To honor men who are not poor!

They’ve sweated hard for all they’ve got
And stacked it in a profit pot!—
Or wisely spent, invested more,
And tripled what they had before!

Now throw them flowers, let them know
We really, truly, love them so!
And we, who have but hundreds, hey!
A billionaire gets praise today!

Now rich men smile, salute and wave,
Their eyes alert, their shoulders brave;
Rich women, too, in jewels of fire,
Do stir admiring minds up higher!

Ba-boom! Ba-boom! Ba-boom! Ba-boom!
Now shout and cheer! Now give them room!
Today’s the day we waited for:
To praise the men who are not poor!
