A popular song from the American Civil War updated with new modern lyrics portraying Aura Lee at the centre of corporate mayhem after a sharemarket crash.
Verse 01 Once I sought an employee For my Wall Street company. Fickle fortune favoured me When I employed Aura Lee. Chorus 01 Aura Lee, Aura Lee, Maid with business flair. Income came on stream with thee And Profits for my shares. Verse 02 Although profits were but few Suddenly they bloomed and grew amazingly and certainly because of Aura Lee. Repeat Chorus 01 Verse 03 Aura moved away from me And I shed a tear to see The failure of my company From the loss of Aura Lee. Repeat Chorus 01 Verse 04 A cruel takeover spree Turned me into history. Now I am an employee Of CEO Aura Lee. Chorus 02 Aura Lee Aura Lee, I'm your loyal employee. Look upon me favourably As you review my salary.
