The Lyrics

This one aims more for dry humor than for laughing out loud. This song also has a moral to the story; just not the same moral as in the Evanescence song.
(First Chorus)

I've got batteries made of nickel-cadmium/
Got 'em all in the charger for cadmium/

Can't figure out why they won't hold their charge in/
Wait-they're ol-ol-old!/
About time they're disposed!/

1. I recall the RC cars they powered/
Drove those things around till they tore up the road/

Now they lie on a shelf down below/
Just used their batteries one time too many/

Now they don't work any./
Used to be uncanny./

(Second Chorus)

So much can be made of the things'/

Don't wanna have to spend cash to buy/

Just one more thing to give my wallet holes/

Oh.....oh noooooo!!!!

2. Don't wanna spend the bucks no more this time!
That would seem a crime./

Did not buy my love flowers either/
My money just wants me to let go!/
Can't let go!/

Then again, that might be it after all/
Life with just Benjamins is life lived alone/

And in the end/perhaps it ain't that bad/
Always get it back with my next paycheck/

Nuff with this misery!/
I'm not that miserly./

(Third Chorus)

Time to end this Scrooge complex with/
Feed my tightwad side to the eels/

Now to drive my RCs to the moon./

Oh-oooh yeah!
And now away we go...

This song works better for those who used to own Tyco RC cars growing up. The cadmium being referred to is the yellow NiCd battery packs that powered Tyco RC vehicles such as the Ricochet and ATRC.
