The Lyrics

Patty = a small meat pie
How can you say that I’m reprehensible?
With this I have to disagree
What is this exaction? You’re robbin’ me
Insulted by your latest audacity

Driven to beers
Driven to beers
Driven to beers

Child support is whoppin’; all you do is gloat
Uncomfortable subsistence: I got used to a hollow, filling-less patty
Seems that I’m some trod upon guy
You see my sufferin’ as a mark of one-upmanship
Too many lawyers can dampen a mood
So this is why I’ve been…

Driven to beers
Driven to beers
Driven to beers

You’ve made me hostile: half my wages to you
Payin’ the price for this child…from your cheatin’ screw

Driven to beers
Driven to beers
Driven to beers
Driven to beers
Driven to beers
Driven to beers
Driven to beers

Now I need 515 beers myself. Well written parody, but not funny (then again, obviously you didn't aim for that).

I picture a guy sitting in a pub drinking and singing this until he's completely surrounded by and buried in empty beer mugs.

Hey Andy! Good to see you back! I echo Peter's comments, not going for laughs, but well told. I have a feeling that your protagonist may end up like the one in Merry & Pippin's parody, lest he not be careful...!

$555. would probably pay for a DNA test...
