The Lyrics

Once upon a time
Not so long ago
Tommy used to work on the docks
He retired early
He's down on his last buck it's tough
Gina hopes to die of old age
Leeching off her man, she wishes she never engaged
For dough
She says we've got to thrift off of what we've got
"cause it doesn't make a difference
If we live long or not
We've got each other but that's not enough
For a pool – no, no it's not


Whooah, we're at the end of our road
Livin' on a pension
Don't take my hand – I have arthritis
Livin' on a pension

Tommy's needs his pills on the clock
Now he's monthly payments all used
What stupid luck – luck, luck, luck, luck
Gina's to fat to run away
When she cries at night
Tommy whispers shutup you whiny old hag
We've got to thrift off of what we've got
"cause it doesn't make a difference
If we live long or not
We've got each other, but that's not enough
For crab – no, no its not


We've got to lay low, they want our dough
You be Sam White and I'll be Mex Ronico

Answer me one question, AeroCooper...once you finished writing this, did you try singing it back to yourself? I'll bet my police pension that you didn't...because the pacing is just about non-existant. Do you understand that your NEW words have to fit with the ORIGINAL TUNE? Or do you just not care? This is poor, poor, poor...I'll lock you up if you do something like this again...222

This author could be Fitu Petaia (the paragon of poorly-paced parodies) in disguise. I agree with Sgt. B(r)ad Pacing that if you EVER do this again you shall be locked up, shackled and the key thrown away

The best part is the 'rhyming' in the choruses.

W-o-w. I wrote this parody several years ago, put it on a s***ty little website that I never thought anyone would ever possibly visit, and never made a second thought about it. It is awful, looking back at it. I'm pretty sure it was one of those things I did when I was bored as f*** and my mind was wandering endlessly. Never expected it to be up for criticism. And I don't think I ever did try another parody, seeing as my first wasn't good. I write sketches instead. Still wowed as to how it made its way to this website.
