Who's Yellen now?

Vocals and Lyrics by Dessa
Production by Lazerbeak and Andy Thompson

Oooo, who’s Yellen now?
Who’s Yellen, who’s Yellen now?

Doves on the left
Hawks on the right
Crosstalk in the flock tryna fight mid-flight
But here comes Yellen with that inside voice
Never mind the mild manner, policies make noise
She’s 5-foot nothing, but hand to God
She can pop a collar, she can rock a power bob
Bay Ridge represent!
Brooklyn’s in the cabinet!
Damn, Janet, go and get it —
Fifth in line for president!
She knows the kinda stimulus it takes to pass a buck
I heard she called the housing crisis
She’s qualified as ffff —
It only took a couple centuries
The first female secretary of the treasury

Don’t want no tax evasion
Forgers faking
In her treasury
Trying for higher wages
For the nation
Less disparity

Watch your step, there's busted glass
Janet broke another ceiling
You can bet your brass
That the Lego guy is leaving
Last check to cash
— 'Scuse me, Janet has a briefing and a flight to catch
And Janet
She’s the first that’s led
The Council of Economic Advisers, Tresh and the Fed,
She needs a three-sided coin that always comes up heads
To put the triple crown down when she goes to bed
Call the decorators
New boss in the office
Spenders and the savers
Watch the confirmation process
We got to meet her
Now let’s let her settle in
And lift up your mojitos —
'Cause she manages the mint
**Janet broke another ceiling (watch out for fallen glass!) ... and she's fifth in line for president.  I don't normally care for rap music, but I've been playing this one over and over.  Click here to listen to it and follow along with the words.

**The photo at the top is the official Federal Reserve portrait of Janet Yellen, an American economist who is serving as the 78th and current United States Secretary of the Treasury.  Previously, she was the 15th chair of the Federal Reserve from 2014 to 2018.  She is the first woman to hold either role.  This Information is from Wikipedia.

This is very clever. I am so pleased that some of his cabinet members are getting confirmed quickly.
