Banks Are Blowing Up All Over...!

Yeah, that's what we do around here, put inferior lyrics into Broadway show tunes.
You got a problem with a Rogers and Hammerstein parody?
Here's the rundown on today's action in the bank stocks:

Down 18.96% Goldman Sachs
Down 20.00% Citigroup
Down 20.73% JPMorgan Chase
Down 23.82% Wells Fargo
Down 28.97% Bank of America
Down 42.62% Barclays PLC
Down 59.04% State Street Bank and Trust
Down 62.47% Allied Irish Banks

And the winner is:
Down 69.31% Royal Bank of Scotland
(world's largest by assets)

I hope that explains the show tunes:

...June is bustin' out all over
All over the meadow and the hill!
Buds're bustin' outa bushes
And the rompin' river pushes
Ev'ry little wheel that wheels beside the mill!

June is bustin' out all over
The feelin' is gettin' so intense,
That the young Virginia creepers
Hev been huggin' the bejeepers
Outa all the mornin' glories on the fence!
Because it's June...

June, June, June
Just because it's June, June, June!

Fresh and alive and gay and young
June is a love song, sweetly song

June is bustin' out all over!
The saplin's are bustin' out with sap!
Love hes found my brother, Junior,
And my sister's even loonier!
And my Ma is gettin' kittenish with Pap!
June in bustin' out all over...
