Another old song that could be updated, All for Me Grog/Across the Western Suburbs:

Where is me bank,
Me community saving banks?
All gone for profit and for plunder!
Who can you trust
When all the banks go bust?
And across the Western suburbs we shall wander!

Then Woody Guthrie had this fine protest song on behalf of foreclosed farmers in the Dust Bowl:

My name is Tom Cranker
And I'm a jolly banker;
I'm a jolly banker,
Jolly banker am I...

I can look up the rest of that one if anyone has an interest (no pun intended).
