The Lyrics

HEY! "CHECK" this out! LOL!! :-D
(Cash or credit)
(Cash or debit)

(Cash or credit)
(Debit or credit)

Have you noticed, that people are still writing checks?
All their debit cards, have just put them all into debt
Cashiers at gas stations, constantly scorn them
But people are still writing checks, and no place seems to take them

(Cash or credit)
(Debit or credit)

Do you realize that people are still writing checks?
They can’t balance their ledgers, perhaps they’re too complex
When you see them holding pens it’s never now and then
To endorse in the activity, do you understand me?

People are still writing checks, clerks keep on clerking
Nothing makes them stop, they keep on withdrawing

People are still writing checks, it’s has gone on for quite awhile
Perhaps it’s habitual, it’s no longer service with a smile (sound:register beeps)

(Cash or credit)
(Cash or debit)
(Debit or credit)

(Cash or credit)
(Cash or debit)
(Debit or credit)

It’s the facts that people are still writing checks
It is all null and void, they should all be rejects
The statement is all around that everyone in every town
Has written at least one or another in their life

At this very moment, people are still writing checks
At a shopping center, or in a mall in a complex
Although you can’t read them, or hear the register sounds
Someone is writing a check for something right now

People are still writing checks!
People are still writing checks!
People are still writing checks!
People are still writing checks!

(Synth. Organ Solo)

(Checks, checks, checks, checks)
(Checks, checks, checks, checks) (sound:register totals up)

(Instrumental Solo)

People are still writing checks, clerks keep on clerking
Nothing makes them stop, they keep on withdrawing
People are still writing checks, it’s has gone on for quite awhile
Perhaps it’s habitual, it’s no longer service with a smile

People are still writing checks,
People are still writing checks,
People are still writing checks,
People are still writing checks, (Checks!)
Remember to endorse my V and C checks please! ;-)

OMR-I appreciate your kind words that you said about me and my parody, but put in your usual funny style... ;-D :-) Thank You Also for your V and/or C too! I really enjoy getting those too! :-) AFW-I know what you mean about people always being ahead of you in check out lanes, they are for me too, in my case the grocery store, I finally found out why they call the "express" lanes of 15 items or less "express lanes" because they make all the other lanes go faster! LOL! ;-D Also, I wish to give you a BIG Thank You for your V and/or C as well, at first, I didn't think anyone would be aware of TOS of this parody, but looks like I was mistaken. Thanks Again All!! :-) :-) -WCJ-
