Sam Cooke's understanding of DBs and actuaries


Recommended Posts

a more realistic approach to the world of DBs and actuaries as
presented by

Sam Cooke in "What a Wonderful World"


Don’t know much about this DB
There’s a funding de-fi-cien-cy
And I know that they are on the hook
I-R-S wants to take a look
And I do know that the dollars are few
And the contribution’s overdue
What a terrible plan this DB

Don’t know much about ac-tu-ar-ies
No sense of humor, no per-so-nal-i-ties
Let us cut it quickly to the core
Everyone knows they are a bore
They will tell you one and one is three
Or whatever you want it to be
What a strange world this ac-tu-ar-y

Now I know, I’m not an “A” student [“A” for actuary of course!]
I’m not trying to be
For maybe by being an ac-tu-ar-y
No one would understand me

Don’t know much about P-B-G-C
Supposedly it’s a guar-an-tee
Then the rules changed under P-P-A
Even more confusion to this day

So let’s eliminate them two by two
For if actuaries were a few
What a wonderful world it would be.

Instrumental pause

So let’s eliminate them two by two
For if actuaries were a few
What a wonderful world it would be.

I would have hoped the lack of an Actuarial Song of the Year category on last night's Grammy awards might be corrected next year.

But with tunes as we have received in the past week or so, I am not sure that is a good thing.....

It's one of those "You had to be there" kinds of things!
