VERSE 1
Now Little Zhang is 29 years old,
He’s trying to figure out how the market went cold.
Six months ago, things were lookin’ really hot,
Visited a brokerage and jumped in on the spot.
His stocks went up and his money grew big,
So did his wife’s belly, pregnant with their 2nd kid.
In four quick months Zhang had doubled his dough;
He quit his real job, day trading on the floor.
He thought he was rich so he started livin’ large;
He bought a new apartment and a car for the garage.
But then one day things started goin’ wrong;
The market bottomed out and so did Xiao Zhang.
He lost his apartment, cause he couldn’t afford it,
And his 2nd child, well, he wanted to abort it.
His wife left him and he started to crack,
Thinking, “I gots to runaway and never come back!”

VERSE 2
Now Mr. Wong is 53 years old,
For 35 years he’s been mining black coal.
Making only six hundred dollars a year,
He can’t even afford the occasional beer,
But he’s got more pressing things on his mind.
His wife’s got a tumor they don’t know if it’s benign.
He needs to make some dough for his wife’s operation,
Not to mention pay for his son’s education.
So Wong gets a loan from his uncle Chen Yi,
And then a stock tip from his buddy Wen Li.
He’s never even heard of cash flow or P/E,
But the stock ticker’s six oh triple 8 three.
Mr. Wong’s stuck in a tough situation,
So he asks the market for some quick emancipation.
Little does he know that the market’s ‘bout to crack;
He’ll lose face, runaway, and never come back!

Hu Jintao is 65 years old,
He’s trying to figure out why the market ain’t cold.
He and his advisors tried to get control;
Gettin’ worried cause the valuation’s getting’ full.
The Shanghai Bourse is at 4K+,
At 45x seeming kinda dangerous.
Cause if the market crashes the people gets mad,
And social instability is definitely bad!
So Who and When start to hike the RRR,
They did it nine times, didn’t get ‘em very far.
So they tried in vain to use interest rate hikes;
The count was now zero balls, two strikes.
Hu and Wen were stuck in Zhongnanhai on their own,
Forced to call Alan Greenspan on the phone.
Nothin’ left to do but man up and face facts,
Gonna have to kill the market with a capital gains tax!

OUTRO
Runaway, runaway love, don’t keep running away,
I’ll runaway with you if you want me to.

Yeah, I can only imagine what you goin’ through fellas.
Sometimes I feel like runnin’ away myself.
So do me a favor right now and close your eyes,
And picture us investin’ in the American Funds together.
When we come back everything’s gonna be ok…
Open your eyes…
