Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

I recommend gettin' off financial aid, to anyone
I recommend walking around in your own living room
Swallow it down (what a hefty little bill)
It feels so good (earning your own money)
Wait until your mom sees what you can do

You work you earn
You learn you earn
You try you earn
You slave you earn
You teach you earn
You live you earn

I recommend biting steak you paid for yourself to anyone
I certainly do
I recommend sticking your foot in your own shoes at any time
Feel free
Throw it away (you earned it do with it as you will)
Hold it up (to see your name)
You wait and see what you have left

Repeat Chorus

Wear it out (then go and buy yourself some more)
Melt it down (the gold you have around your neck)
The money's yours so go and spend it

Repeat Chorus

You grieve you don' t earn
You choke you don't earn
You laugh you don't earn
You choose what you earn
You pray you earn
You ask you earn
You live you earn
