12 days before Christmas my boss said to me

Christmas Tree And Bauble

My boss said to me...

This little ditty should be sung to the tune of 12 Days of Christmas

On the first day of Christmas, 
my boss said I'm key 
So he's got a great bonus for me.

On the second day of Christmas, 
my boss winked at me 
Two regulators a-probing,
But there's still a great bonus for me.

On the third day of Christmas, 
my boss said to me
Three staff a-resigning,
Two regulators a-probing, 
But there's still a very decent bonus for me.

On the fourth day of Christmas, 
my boss said to me
Four subpoenas arriving,
Three staff a-resigning,
Two regulators a-probing, 
And there's still a decent bonus for me.

On the fifth day of Christmas,
my boss said to me 
Five Goldman stings,
Four subpoenas arriving,
Three staff a-resigning,
Two regulators a-probing, 
And there's probably a decent bonus for me.

On the sixth day of Christmas, 
my boss said to me
Six board members a-praying,
Five Goldman stings,
Four subpoenas arriving,
Three staff a-resigning,
Two regulators a-probing, 
And there might be a decent bonus for me.

On the seventh day of Christmas, 
my boss said to me
Seven clients a-suing,
Six board members a-praying,
Five Goldman stings,
Four subpoenas arriving
Three staff a-resigning,
Two regulators a-probing, 
So there might not be a decent bonus for me.

On the eighth day of Christmas, 
my boss said to me
Eight Feds a-raiding,
Seven clients a-suing,
Six board members a-praying,
Five Goldman stings,
Four subpoenas arriving
Three staff a-resigning,
Two regulators a-probing, 
So there's probably not a decent bonus for me.

On the ninth day of Christmas,
my boss said to me
Nine shareholders a-complaining, 
Eight Feds a-raiding,
Seven clients a-suing,
Six board members a-praying,
Five Goldman stings,
Four subpoenas arriving
Three staff a-resigning,
Two regulators a-probing, 
So there's hardly any bonus for me.

On the tenth day of Christmas, 
my boss said to me 
Ten traders arrested,
Nine lawmakers a-complaining, 
Eight Feds a-raiding,
Seven clients a-suing,
Six board members praying,
Five Goldman stings,
Four subpoenas arriving
Three staff a-resigning,
Two regulators a-probing, 
So there's probably not much bonus for me.

On the eleventh day of Christmas, 
my boss said to me 
Eleven lawyers a-worrying,
Ten traders arrested,
Nine lawmakers a-complaining, 
Eight Feds a-raiding,
Seven clients a-suing,
Six board members a-praying,
Five Goldman stings,
Four subpoenas arriving
Three staff a-resigning,
Two regulators a-probing, 
And there's probably no bonus for me.

On the twelfth day of Christmas, 
my boss said to me 
Twelve jurors a-deciding,
Eleven lawyers a-worrying,
Ten traders arrested,
Nine lawmakers a-complaining, 
Eight Feds a-raiding,
Seven clients a-suing,
Six board members a-praying,
Five Goldman stings,
Four subpoenas arriving
Three staff a-resigning,
Two regulators a-probing....
Now there's no bloody bonus for me!

And the very next day, my boss got fired.
