For the traders here: Ed Seykota's 'The Whipsaw Song'

Like most people, I first learned of Ed Seykota from his epic interview in Market Wizards, back when I was a 20-something stockbroker in Seattle. While there are a lot of great interviews in that book, Seykota's is far and away the best.

You get a whip and I get a saw, honey
You get a whip and I get a saw, babe
You get a whip and I get a saw -- One good trend, pay's for 'em all!

For more info in the direction of the song, see Michael Covel's Trend Following

Is there anyone here who gets this song? It is brilliant. I was singing it all day today.
