Breaking Up (The Banks) is Hard to Do
For Sandy Weill
From His Former Best Bud Robert Rubin

In a stunning reversal, a former big bank CEO who crusaded for policies that helped create the so-called "too-big-to-fail" banks now says we need to break up the banks.

Don't take your love of big banks away, Sandy

Don't you leave all those vaults empty

If you do then the one percent will be blue

'Cause breaking up is hard to do

Remember in '99 when you held me tight

And we got rid of Glass-Steagall overnight

Think of all that we've been through,

Breaking Up Is Hard To Do

They say that breaking up is hard to do

Now I know, I know that it's true

Don't say that this is the end

Instead of breaking up let's start buying up again

I beg you, Sandy, don't say it was all for naught

Can't we give Too-Big-to-Fail a bit more thought

Come on baby, let's start anew

'Cause breaking up is hard to do
