Lester Atlas, a crude, very rich corporate raider, traps Norman in the Caribbean dream by offering to buy the hotel for him, and then welshing on the deal when Norman can no long back out. He is a despicable but somehow lovable rogue, who in his own mind is a magnanimous, misunderstood benefactor of humanity. What other people call corporate raiding, he explains, telling the truth in business matters. Why Jimmy decided to give him a song with a tango rhythm and a klezmer trill I don't know, but it works. 

I'm just an old truth teller 
I'm your candid friend 
I'm not some daydream seller 
I do not pretend 
I've a sense of survival 
And screwing my rivals 
That's labeled me crossed and uncouth 
But I can't help it I just tell the truth 
He can't help it, he just tells the truth 

I'm just an old truth teller 
Brutally direct 
I see it eye for eye 
I'm rarely incorrect 
Why call me a sharp trader 
A corporate raider 
I'm a role model for today's youth 
It's so simple, I just tell the truth 
He can't help it, he just tells the truth 

Bridge: 

Why was I born to be right all the time 
In deal after deal after deal 
Foiling those sharks that are circling my penthouse 
Hoping to make a meal 

No good deed goes unpunished 
Nothing goes as planed 
My ingrate family left me 
I don't understand 

Where's your wife? 
In Alaska 
Any sons? 
In Nebraska 
And my daughter milks cows in Duluth 
I can't help it, I just tell the truth 
Ohh he can't help it, he just sells it 
he can't help, he just tells it 
I can't help, I just tell the truth
