Yesterday's Nest Egg Hunt at Bicentennial Plaza in Raleigh drew more than 150 people who support the Obama administration's restructuring of the banking system and his economic plan.

The demonstration was part of a National Day of Action to call for transparency and accountability in the financial industries and, according to organizers, "to restore capitalism to serve ordinary people like you and me."

The local event was sponsored by Raleigh Forward, who also tweeted the event and shared their photos.

It's time to cue music for Mojo Nixon and Skid Roper's psycho-hillbilly song from the '80s, "I Hate Banks." Here's some of the lyrics:

By Mojo Nixon and Skid Roper

I hate banks...

I just can't stand 'em.

Gimme a shovel & man I'll plant 'em.

Six feet under thats where they belong...

I hate banks is the name of this song.

I think I'll rob myself one or two...

Yeah I hate banks, yeah, how 'bout you?

Well...lend me a nickel & lend me a dime,

repossess my house any old time.

Financial institutions think they're so high faluting...

Just a bunch of fruits in three piece suits,

trying to steal all my loot.

Things are smelling pretty rank,

We must be near a stinking bank.

Smells worse than Rockefeller's feet,

Wall Street can eat my meat

I hate banks is the name of this song.

I think I'll rob myself one or two...

Yeah I hate banks, yeah, how 'bout you?

 

Well...lend me a nickel & lend me a dime,

repossess my house any old time.

Financial institutions think they're so high faluting...

Just a bunch of fruits in three piece suits,

trying to steal all my loot.

Things are smelling pretty rank,

We must be near a stinking bank.
