I'm a junk bond king
And I'm on the run
Me and a friend of mine
We were headed for the sunshine

I got my hands on the wheel
I got gas in the tank
I got a suitcase full of money
From a Luxembourg bank

We didn't stop 'til we got to Big Cypress
Wandered in to the Legion Hall
The sign outside said "Seminole Bingo"
Fell in love with the ping pong balls

And the SEC is far behind
Down in the swamp with the gators and flamingos
A long way from Liechtenstein
I'm a junk bond king playing Seminole Bingo

And my Wall Street wiles
Don't help me even slightly
'Cause I never have the numbers
And I'm losing nightly

I cashed in the last of my Triple be bonds
Bought a double-wide on the Tamiami Trail
I parked it right outside the reservation
Fifteen minutes from the Collier County Jail

And the SEC is far behind
Down in the swamp with the gators and flamingos
A long way from Liechtenstein
I'm a junk bond king playing Seminole Bingo

Well, the SEC is far behind
Down in the swamp with the gators and flamingos
A long way from Liechtenstein
I'm a junk bond king playing Seminole Bingo

    General CommentBoth Liechtenstein and Luxembourg were at the time (less so today) well-known for secret bank accounts which very much fits the theme of the song. Roy Lichtenstein (spelled differently) doesn't seem to fit, unless it's a very indirect reference to this financier owning expensive art.
