How are real Billionaires made? Shane Kanoa rewrites Travie McCoy & Bruno Mars' "Billionaire", telling how folks on Forbes magazine, the trading floor, and your neighborhood daytraders become real Billionaires, making and losing millions everyday. This is the anthem for the traders and investors who not only survived the bear market in 2008-09, but was on the right side of the trade and used the government and banks' mistakes to get rich.
Like the original "Billionaire" lyrics Travie McCoy sings,
"We in recession but let me take a crack at it
I’ll probably take whatevers left and just split it up
So everybody that I love can have a couple bucks
And not a single tummy around me would know what hungry was
Eating good sleeping soundly"
LYRICS (Heist Rendition)
Written by Shane Kanoa, MarketHEIST CFO
I wanna be a billionaire so frickin bad, buy up all the things I never had.
I wanna be on the cover of Forbes Magazine, laughing at Geithner and Bernanke.
Oh everytime I close my eyes, I see a way that I'll get mine.
No matter the circumstances I'll survive, I swear, the world better prepare, for when I'm a billionaire
I been thinking every day since the crash of 08
That it wasn't what it was 'cept everyone was just afraid
Added fuel to trend lines as we approached judgment day
And I never could explain what to do to get away
Just to sneak a peek, a moment, unopportune
Possibilities irrelevant crashed & burned just so smooth
Every limit, every stop just blew outta containment
Lazy summertime clouds turned to worldwide panic
See every moment has its reasons more explicit than rhymes
Epidemic spread so wide that even VIX was sublime
And every quarter of the streets was infested with doubt
As the Bears came to town and the bulls got knocked out...
Chorus (last ½)
So if you're sittin here wonderin what's supposed to be done
Ease your mind and no worries let the Heist help you out
It's a feeling, a fad, a vindication from the ignorance
Reprimanding the industry who advanced on your innocence
Swing, a day, of sentimental rehabilitants
Multiple timeframes and technical illiterates
Separate your emo from the station you man up
And ignore the middle child of false propaganda
A tank, a crash, a little blip on your screen
Is just another way to take back what's yours from beginnings
It's a quest, opportune to make a point to the government
Cuz a billionaire's life doesn't care for the fuss of it...
