You tried your hand at physics
Gave art a college try
From English to linguistics
Your dreams had gone awry

But innocently, you supposed
One class could do no damage
‘Cause surely it can’t hurt to know
And gain a fair advantage

“I won’t sell out,” you proudly said,
So surely, it’s ironic
That market forces fill your head —
You’ll study economics

You star a tab on Google Chrome
The Goldman Application
You swear you’ll use the knowledge
To pursue global relations

“It’s just a couple years, that’s all!”
You’ll fix it from inside!
But soon you’ll find a penthouse in
New York’s Upper West Side
