Fund Me Now

by Rob Wynne

To the Tune of "Hold Me Now" by the Thompson Twins


I have an idea
A surefire scheme
A vision of making a few million off of technology dreams
There's just one problem
I don't have the cash
If I could just find some investors I'm sure we'd be rich in a flash

Oh-oh, fund me now
Oh-oh, fund my start
New VC
Is the hardest part, the hardest part

You say I'm a dreamer
We're a dozen a dime
But this one's a sure thing, I promise we'll turn out
A profit this time
We'll create us a new firm
That will draw in the dough
All we need is that first little push to get started
Can you make us go?

Oh-oh, fund me now
Oh-oh, fund my start
New VC
Is the hardest part, the hardest part

You ask for the numbers
What's our business plan
But those are just details, and don't you agree
Our idea is just grand
We're not asking for billions
Just a few million bucks
You'll make it all back in the end, all we need
is a whole lot of luck

Oh-oh, fund me now
Oh-oh, fund my start
New VC
Is the hardest part, the hardest part
