Retirement plan related quotes & such

Recommended Posts

In my employee presentations, I like to use quotes, analogies, etc. to try to "translate" some of the more arcane (and there are SO many!) and complicated aspects of our business into a simpler message that might actually be understood - and retained.

In an attempt to dilute some of the vitriol coursing through these Message Boards of late, I would like to invite readers to submit quotes, song titles, song lyrics, etc. that have any sort of a tie in - however loose - with retirement plans.

Examples:

"You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink."

"Time Is On My Side" (Rolling Stones)

"You Can't Always Get What You Want" (Rolling Stones)

"You Got Another Think Comin'" (Judas Priest)

And my corporate theme song: "Roll With The Changes" (REO Speedwagon)

Thanks - and have fun!

if you make the upcoming Western Benefits Conference I will be once again performing Louis Armstrong's

I see skies of blue

Clouds of white

The bright blessed day

I’m in a 401(k)

And I think to myself, what a wonderful world.

(well you have to attend to get the rest of the song)

will probably also do an Elvis pension song.

Have done the Beach Boys

Well I save my nickels and I saved my dimes

<put away, save away,401>...

also the Beatles 'Yesterday, 65 seemed so far away...'

this fall's ASPPA conference I am planning on a version of

Harry Chapin's "Cat's in the Cradle"

well the plan arrived, just the other day

the company put in a 4-0-1-k.....

someday maybe I will finish Otis Redding "I'm sitting in a 4-0-1-k, watching the funds roll away..."

well, c'mon, surely you don't expect me to post the words to all those songs do you? I'll give you Old MacDonald for free - anyone can do that one.

Old Macdonald had a plan

He needs an E-I-N

And in this plan he has match

E-I E-I-N

There’s a deferral here a deferral there

Here a match, there a match

Everywhere a match match

Old Macdonald had a plan

E-I E-I-N

Old Macdonald ran a scam

I-O I-O-U

And in this scam he stole the dough

I-O I-O-U

Steal a few bucks here steal a few bucks there

Here a buck, there a buck

Everywhere a buck buck

Old Macdonald ran a scam

I-O I-O-U

Old MacDonald is in jail

D-O D-O-L

He hasn’t got a chance of bail

D-O D-O-L

Steal a few bucks here serve a little time there

Here a year there a year

The judge gave him about 20 years

Old MacDonald is in jail

D-O D-O-L

Old MacDonald’s on parole

And living in RIO

He has a big fat Swiss Account

RIO – R-I-O

With a pretty girl here and a pretty girl there

Here a grand there a grand

He’s got about 500 grand

Old MacDonald’s on parole

And living in RIO

Old MacDonald should be alarmed

E-I E-I-O

His former help will do him harm

E-I E-I-O

There’ a gunshot here and a gunshot there

Here a shot there a shot

Everywhere a gunshot

Old MacDonald (you gotta pause at this point for the punch line) bought the farm

E-I E-I-O

Anyone have a version of YMCA by the Village People? Here's a start...

Its fun participating in a 4-0-1-k

Participating in a 4-0-1-k

You can make yourself rich

You can get some good match

You can invest in whatever you feel

I could see Tom doing this one at a conference and getting the entire room involved!
