You Can't Hide Your Bottom Line

Dalai's note: There are a number of discussions on Aunt Minnie concerning the acquisition of radiology groups by predatory venture capital operations. And so, with apologies to the Eagles....

Greedy rads just never get the message
That guys in suits are not their new best friends
Big Venture Cap
And they won’t have to worry
They’ll dump their overhead and drive a Benz
Late at night, the reading room gets lonely
I guess selling out young partners has its price
And it breaks your heart to see your talents going
To a predator with soul as cold as ice.
So you tell the junior kids that you’ll protect them
From the guys in suits that want to take you down
But they know that you’re lyin’ as your speakin’
That you’re looking for a payoff to come ‘round


You can’t hide your bottom line
And you’ll never get that big gold mine
No one buys your story line
There ain’t no way to hide your bottom line


In an office park downtown the beans are counting
Finding RVU’s that they are gonna steal
And you sign right on the line anticipating
That you’ll fool them and prevail in this deal
The younger guys think you’re in this together
That you’re only in this for a short while
And you swear that soon you’re going to get a letter
That shows that everybody gets a pile


You can’t hide your bottom line
And you never got that big gold mine
No one buys your story line
There ain’t no way to hide your bottom line


You stand up and drink a hot one from the Keurig
And stare at that endless list there on the PACS
Another night of thinking you’re the bigwig
Just you would know who’s gonna get the ax
You wonder how you ever got so greedy
Big house and cars and snotty private schools
You thought you’d be let off for being needy?
You’ve got to know you look just like a fool
My oh my, you sure know how to wreck things
You set it up so well so carefully
Ain’t it funny how your new gig doesn’t change things
You’re still the same old jerk you used to be


You can’t hide your bottom line
And you never got that big gold mine
No one buys your story line
There ain’t no way to hide your bottom line
There ain’t no way to hide your bottom line
Doctor, you can’t hide your bottom line
