A pied piper holler a rhyme, a dollar and a dime
Do his thing, ring around the white collar crime
People make a lot of money doing white collard crimes and do very little time. DOOM’s a pied piper, leading people through his rhymes, and this ties into the earlier ‘killer who loves children’ line. For this he nets a dollar and a dime, money (‘a dollar’) also comes with ‘a dime’: more money, a dime bag, or an attractive women (a ‘ten’). He does his thing, which isn’t quite white-collar crime, it’s a dingier ring-around-the-collar variant.
“Pied piper” refers to the line “a killer who loves children”.
The Pied Piper of Hamelin is the subject of a legend concerning the death of a great number of children across Germany, in the Middle Ages.
