Jack Marrion Bio (sung to When I Was A Lad from H.M.S. Pinafore)

When I was a lad I served a term

As stockbroker at an investment firm.

I dialed cold calls and touted daily stocks,

And I always heeded the researcher’s talks.

But I sold so little, they rewarded me

By making me consultant to the industry.

CHORUS – He sold so little, they rewarded he By making him consultant to the industry.

From stockbroker I went into management

Where I told brokers where money should be sent.

The firm announced what needed to be sold,

And I taught brokers what needed to be told.

I taught so poorly they rewarded me

By making me consultant to the industry.

CHORUS – He taught so poorly, they rewarded he By making him consultant to the industry.

A bear market caused a change in plans

And as annuity wholesaler I then began.

What producers really needed, I never could grasp

So my regional territory always finished last.

My manager proposed a new career path for me

By suggesting my consulting to the industry.

CHORUS – His manager proposed a new career path for he By suggesting his consulting to the industry.

An investment dealer I then did own

Where I directed the company from atop my throne.

As the employees did the work my profits grew

Until my income was great though my working days were few.

I worked so little, a buyout rewarded me,

And I became consultant to the industry.

CHORUS – He worked so little, a buyout rewarded he, And made him a consultant to the industry.

And now I sit at the peak of the pile

Dispensing bits of wisdom with smugness and a smile.

My speaking schedule’s full and my books are selling,

If a consultant life’s your goal then heed the words I’m telling.

Make sure you sell very little and a poor teacher be 

And you may become consultant to the industry. 

CHORUS – Make sure you sell very little and a poor teacher be  And you may become consultant to the industry.
