The Lyrics

This parody is a fictional anecdote about someone down on their luck withdrawing money from a Wells Fargo Bank ATM, fantasizing about robbing the bank, then living high on the hog legally thanks to lottery games. *"Farley in his van": This refers to the famous "Saturday Night Live" skit in which the late Chris Farley remarks about living in a van down by the river, thus implying that the fictional, nameless person in this parody has an undesirable living situation, but is not homeless.
At the ATM booth
Runnin’ my card to get cash
That sweet green paper, so precious
Lying in my black billfold
Payin’ all o’ my bills
Payin’ my rent and utility
Cable and Internet
And almost zilch left over

I’ve got it bad
But not like Farley in his van*
Drivin’ in my old beat-up Yugo
To a bank called Wells Fargo

I’ve got money now
To pay for all that I owe on
I can get rich, oh, filthy rich, I know
But I won’t rob the Wells Fargo

I can truly remember
When I was very flush
That one day, ‘twas July 4th
I gambled me broke
I think I won’t
Gamble again
'Cause I’m flat broken, still
Baby, this might be the end

I’ve got it bad
(I’ve got it bad)
I’m livin’ in a ghetto ‘hood
My credit’s goin’ to bad from good
Thinkin’ ‘bout robbin’ Wells Fargo

I’m lookin’ at jail time
(In fed’ral prison)
If I up and rob the bank
I’ll be rich, I will, I know
And I won’t rob the Wells Fargo

I’ve got it all
(I’ve got it all)
Just like Mr. Donald Trump
‘Cause I played the Megabucks
And didn’t rob the Wells Fargo

Thanks, AFW... did you work as a psychologist, mental-health specialist or psychiatrist prior to retirement? I'd like to know.

Why not try producing a Broadway flop - oops that was done before and it backfired.

Ah, the days of the 'large withdrawal"! Great one, Andria, and good OS. I think someone else did a remake of it, but the name escapes me..

Thanks Timmy1K, thanks Alvin, this OS wasn't a huge hit to the best of my knowledge, thanks again AFW, your old job sounded both boring and interesting at the same time, thanks 2Eagle, thanks Mark, and thanks TJC.

Great story Andria, reminds me of the Twilight Zone with Dick York having the ability to hear co-workers at the bank think, one with a similar fantasy. Depositing $555 in your parody account.

Andria - Winnin' the megabucks is a far go from bank heist and federal time. I always liked the Fargo horsies. You horsed around with this little gem quite interestingly.

My "guyspeak" detector alerted on this line in the parody:

"I gambled me broke"

Clever bit of word-smithing. I also caught the "Flush" ref to gambling. Quite witty, indeed. Let me guess, you shot the moon on a flush and the house was full, maybe kings over deuces. =:-(

I know of only one situation where a flush beats a full house. This is a true experience. The Men's room at work has one urinal and two stalls and gets a line going sometimes. One of my co-workers was waiting anxiously cross-legged for his "shot" - too much coffee for him too quickly. What must have seemed an eternity to him until there was finally the sound of a flush. He let out a loud sigh and rapidly went for the available device that would bring him the much needed relief. During the wait you could feel the tension in the air and that is when I blurted out - "Hey, it's the only time a flush beats a full house". Everyone roared - it wasn't LOL it was ROL (Roar out loud).

One guy was sitting in one of the stalls and he laughed so hard that he produced about 10 seconds of nonstop flatulence, which only made everyone roar louder with laughter.

I vote a full house - three 5's and two jacks, just for jacking around.

(ABC5) Well, to be honest, I don't know what to make of this one. Probably because I'm missing some key pieces of information due to either my age, my geographical location, my general lack of important knowledge or some sort of combination of all three. Not your fault, but I just couldn't get into it.
