The Lyrics


Well it’s Saturday and we’re both off work
Let’s go somewhere in the car
How about we head to the shopping mall
And use my new Visa Gold Card

I know that we don’t need anything
But we’ll do it for our country
If we go and use my new Visa Gold Card
It will stimulate the economy

We can buy something, and help our Wall Street
To aid in our recover
All we have to do is buy some things
And use my new Visa Gold Card

So take my hand and we’ll explore
The shopping mall is not far
We’ll help America get back on its feet
When we use my new Visa Gold Card

Even though the interest rates are high
We’ll declare Chapter 11 like every other guy
Until that day we’ll just see how far
We can use my new Visa Gold Card
We can use my new Visa Gold Card

It will stimulate the economy

We can buy something, and help our Wall Street
To aid in our recover
All we have to do is buy some things
And use my new Visa Gold Card

So take my hand and we’ll explore
The shopping mall is not far
We’ll help America get back on its feet
When we use my new Visa Gold Card

Dan....this was a brilliant opportunity missed. The idea is great: maxing out your credit to "help the economy"....but the execution wasn't there. You really need to get your pacing right; over half the lines didn't scan with the original...try singing your lyrics to the OS, and prune or extend lines as necessary. I know this song is repetitive, but your parody doesn't have to be...the more variation you put in, the more opportunity you have to be funny or to tell a better story. You kinda got stuck on one thought which didn't go anywhere...what I do when I write is brainstorm as many funny scenarios as I can, and jot 'em down...THEN I try to find ways of using rhyme and meter to fit them into a song structure.

I hope you don't think I'm being unnecessarily critical, but if you can get the execution to match your ideas, you'll be on a winner! Peace

Thanks for the advice. I'll try to be better at pacing in the future.
