The Lyrics

You know, if the phrase "pay up or pack up" isn't used by actual repossession agencies, I'll be shocked.
You've been a twit, said you had enough cash
But your plan was to up and fake it
Now up to me to take all of your stuff
Couldn't get off your butt to pay it
You can scream and stir up hell
But I'm gonna leave
With your TV and air-con
Because you lacked the green

Repossessed right now
'Cause your bills have been real lax, no doubt
Repossessed right now
Just do me a favour and calm down
Repossessed right now
Hard to take your stuff with how you shout

At my wit's end 'cause you can't comprehend
Why I'm here, thought I made it clear, dude
"I don't get it now, this is my stuff, wrote down
My name on 'em, the label's near you
I was just about to call
Your people up to tell
Them that I'm gonna pay, I swear!"
When, though? When we're in hell?

Repossessed right now
All your chances to pay have run out
Repossessed right now
I might have to bring more trucks around
Repossessed right now
Now I've checked the list I've got here, wow, whoa-ho-oh

Repossessed right now
Got your speakers, no surrounding sound
Repossessed right now
Got your microwave, gross, clean it out
Repossessed right now
Gonna even have to take your couch

I wish you'd stop
Yelling lots, please shut up
You wanna call the cops (try!)
Dare you, do it now (try!)
This is the right house
Confirmed your name after we knocked
Law's not on your side now

Repossessed right now (tough shit)
Call the boys in blue to bring me down?
Repossessed right now
Too much of a contrast, you'll find out
Repossessed right now (tough shit)
Since your face is so damn red right now (tough shit)
Repossessed right now (yeah-eah-eah-eah-eah)
Blue and red don't mesh real well I've found
Repossessed right now
Though it seems that you'll be white-coat bound
Repossessed right now (yeah-eah-eah-eah)
Good thing your popcorn maker's ours now

Just learned that this song was originally intended for the third Rocky film, which is why you've got the "history repeats itself" line in a song from the first film in a franchise. This would be more amazing to me if I ever watched The Karate Kid. Or any of the Rocky movies. Oh, well.

You mean like .... someone @ssh*le comes to your apartment complex and hot wires your car and drives it away cause you didnt pay some priest for an freakin' exorcism? I dont get it. I thought the Catholic Church did that for free

Of course I meant to say some @ssh*le, as opposed to someone's @ss&*le .. So, not only am I humorless, I'm also careless

This isn't referencing that exorcist parody movie with Leslie Nielsen?
