"Add It Up" by the Violent Femmes (original lyrics can be found at
http://www.cyberden.com/cyberden/database/Lyrics/Violent_Femmes/add_it_up.lyrics)

Day after day, I will login and I will trade.
And the day, after today, I will login and I will trade.

Why can't I make just one buck
Why can't I make just one buck
Guess it's got something to do with luck
But I've waited all day just to make one buck.

Why can't I get one trade thru
Why can't I get one trade thru
Baby I don't know what to do
My online-broker won't go margin for you

Why can't I get just one hit
Why can't I get just one hit
Believe me there's something I just can't get
But I look at my stocks and they ain't worth ...

Day after day, I get angry, and I will trade
Maybe today will be the day
The bulls will show the way.
Oh ma ma ma ma mo ma mark
Have you kept an eye, an eye on your chart
I know you've got problems,
don't break my heart, when you money left
it left you in the dark.

Oh ma ma ma ma mo ma mum
Take a look at now at what my stock has done
It movin' up like it's never done
It's goin up and I'm havin' fun!

Don't short, short, short that stock on me
Don't short, short, short that stock on me
You know your've got my sympathy, but
Don't short, short, short that stock on me.

Looking at the options on the exchange
Should I do something rather strange
Write a put and buy a call
Grasp and reach for the last straw.

Stocks to short, stocks to long
My trading strategy's all wrong
My picks all fail the magic prize
I end up selling low and buying high

Oh mo ma ma ma ma mo ma mother
How I would love to buy another
The market's restless, bid and ask,
When I'm at my keyboard, my last chance.

I fear for you, the risks to take,
money to lose and money to make,
Broker's about ready to cut it up,
He said wait minute buddy, gonna add it up...
add it up...add it up...
day...after day...
add it up...add it up...

Thank You!  Elvis has left the building!
--Chris
