Accountancy Shanty
 
Backing: Fiddle away and balance the books
 
It's fun to charter an accountant
And sail the wide accountancy,
To find, explore the funds offshore,
And skirt the shoals of bankruptcy.
 
It can be manly in insurance,
We'll up your premium semi-annually,
It's all tax-deductible,
We're fairly incorruptible,
We're sailing on the wide accountancy.
 
from "Eric Idle sings Monty Python"

 
Backing: Fiddle away and balance the books
Fiddle away and balance the books

 
We are the studio accountants,
We use computers and the fax,
We make them pay every way,
And then we write it off for tax,
 
Creative agents cannot touch us,
And lawyers are a joke dear, let's be frank,
They'll never ever screw us dear,
Let the bastards sue us,
We're laughing all the way clear to the bank
