The Lyrics

Welcome to the end of the month! I have no idea why Megadeth made the call to name a whole album after the original song, it's not that good beyond the spoken lines idea, but then again those parts my muse decided to pay attention.

A YouTube version of the original song can currently be found here.
Another inconvenient bill is added to the score
My bankroll's gone from pocketful to charges in a drawer
It's quite insane, this wallet drain, collectors come in three
If they detect, a cent I've kept, abruptly woe is me

-The Landlord is calling!

-Tell him I'm in the sack
-Just tell him I'm convinced
-Yeah, I will pay him back

(His check needs some zeros)

Not that I could ever pay, half of his invoice
Until I've paid the mob away, and that is not by choice

-VISA called a bunch, hun!

-They want more dough from me?
-Tell them when I get in
-Tell them I'm out at sea

(His check needs some zeros)
(His check needs some zeros)

Vestibule is full of tools, I'm deep down in the hole
They take my things, my woman's bling
- Mutha, that ain't cool!

-IRS made a call!

-Tell them they're inner track
-Yeah, they'll get their ka-ching
-Despite my cardiac!

(His check needs some zeros)
(His check needs some zeros)

-Red, our Wi-Fi's been cancelled!

-No more Pornhub, Oh jeez!
-Send them now the scot and lot!
-And send apologies!

(His check needs some zeros)
(His check needs some zeros)
My check needs some zeros!
(His check needs some zeros)
(His check needs some zeros)

I feel your pain! I'm in car sales so I only make money when I'm selling stuff and lately at least for this month things have been a little rough. I could totally use a few more zeroes in my paycheck!

@ Matthias: You might be in for better times sooner than you think. Cares sales are gonna BOOM as soon as self-driving cars rolls out for real big time. Imagine a future where a driver's license isn't needed - what does that mean commercially? It means that having your own self driving car will be a status symbol to teenagers! You think having the latest smart phone is a social must for cool kids in High School now - just wait until rich daddies tweeny girls starts putting pressure on parents to buy them the latest hot model self-driving car once a year so they can roll up to the front gate showing off their alfa female status! (There'll be an equivivalent for jock boys too of course). I know you've worked at Disney so you live in California, right? Stick it out and position yourself right, ten years from now you'll be so rich from selling cars that you can buy Chucky ten new servers to host Amiright on for free!

Thanks for the kind words of support. Actually I live in Cleveland, Ohio now. I worked at the Disney theme park in Orlando, Florida. Still have yet to go to California but good memory of me either way lol I hope what you're saying is true because self driving cars are pretty sweet such as the Tesla although they are still pretty dangerous I heard that somebody got stuck under a tall semi truck because the car thought that the guy was able to change lanes. I guess you'll have some bugs like that at first though.
