Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

Home phone and cellphone bills with roaming charges
A phoning phenomenon, my daughter Marge is
Person to person, the Vatican rings
These are a few of my "Pay For It" things

Junior is loon'yer than MGM cartoons
Visa hit hobby is collecting harpoons
Leaves me so broke that my wallet needs slings
These are a few of my "Pay For It" things

My wife loves dresses, and hats, shoes, and purses
Making my head ready for neuro nurses
Filled up with sounds of cash drawer cha chings
These are a few of my "Pay For It" things

When the dog's sick,
When the car breaks,
When the wife's fur clad..
Could use a shrink for my "Pay For It" things
Like Tony Sopra...nooo...hadddd

Toll roads and turnpike fees, frequent vacations
Car washes, gas prices, bumming relations
Artwork, aquariums, Macaw that sings
There's just no end to my "Pay For It" things

Birthdays and Christmases, charity giving
Income, if all mine, would make a great living
Salvation Army, Red Cross's begg-ings
Tally and valley my "Pay For It" things

Pizza deliveries, soft drinks, and extras
Walmart and Kmart receipts big as Texas
Traffic citations and bail bonding springs
Nothing's exempt from my "Pay For It" things

School tuitions,
Goodwill Missions,
Rest'rant meals of Shad..
When I'm gone, I'm headstone will read
Here lies an..."Innn-debtttt"...Dadddd..

Farce - You best reel in those kids and that wife of yours or you'll be filing chapter 11. This is so typically typical in today's easy buy pay later world. Chew up the credit cards and repeal all debits. And "Shad" - It is strangely capitalized, I must have missed the ref. But everything is big in Texas and here shad is used for bait. That's what you are going to be eating - "bait" if you don't reel them in and quick. Great refs, funny and pacing well done and just in time for those Christmas bills to start showing up in the mailbox.

Thanks, Guy...about the capital "Shad"... although, I will admit to being a terrible grammar trainwreck, I often incorrectly capitalize a word, or words, for dramatic emphasis.....(hmm, do you think he'll buy this "Load-a-Crap" lame excuse, folks?) :)

masterfully written as the tony soprano reference....if you were paid for the magnificence of your work, you'd be the richest man in town

Very funny...and sad...because you are describing my life. If I had a nickel for every time I've started a sentence with "when I was a kid...we didn't have...etc."...well then, I would be wealthy instead of the poster Dad for "what's (not) in your wallet"

Great stuff. Favourite Things is a rich vein a parody prospects. You have done it more than justice, AFW.
