Verse

Architects of evil

Wear silk suits and ties.

So sly and decitful.

Weave a web of lies.

Chorus

Ivory towers

Dirty works done.

Money is power.

Powers a drug.

Verse

Generals take orders

Make stocks rise and fall.

The rich buy on margin.

And rake in a haul.

Chorus

Ivory towers

Dirty works done.

Money is power.

Powers a drug.

Verse

Accountants with ledgers

Keep neat sets of books.

There's country club prisons

For white collar crooks.

Chorus

Ivory towers

Dirty works done.

Money is power.

Powers a drug.

Neat idea. I think "prim and proper" isn't really the best way to describe a silk-suited white collar criminal. They're slick, smooth talking, polished, sly, cunning, clever. I think I know what you're getting at there. They can be proper or, at least, seem proper. How about "So smoothly proper?" (though technically that mucks up your syllable count, the word "smooth" cries out for an extra count in the singing so there's no need for fastidious syllable counting there imo).
