How do you short? Short the Gamestop?

In limit orders
In squeezes, in charting, in trade halts, in rocks

In five hundred twenty five thousand six hundred Redditors
How do you short a Gamestop in stocks?

How about funds?
How about funds?

How do you short a share of Tesla or Best Buy

In stocks that they churned
Or in times Melvin cried
In commissions they earned
Or the way that fund died

Its time now to cover all our bets
The trade always ends
Let’s celebrate remember a squeeze in a stock
Of friends

Remember the funds
(Oh you gotta remember the funds)
Remember the funds
(Oh yeah its a squeeze they upends)
Remember the funds
(Trade out, cover it, shorting by funds, hedge fuuuunds)
Seasons of funds
Seasons of funds…
