The Lyrics

Pay dough, pay dough!
Ain’t-bright moneybags bring some fruit home.
Pay, oh he pay through the nose, this ain’t no layaway.
Ain’t-bright moneybags got pulp in dome.

He was right, man named McLuhan.
Ain’t-bright moneybags shell out big dough.
Bank got manna, then it losin’ some:
Ain’t-bright dummy-man take out big dough.

What is the tally, grand tally for banana?
Way high bunch o’ cash, squandered that dough.
What is the tally to carry home banana?
Way high bunch o’ cash…banana dolt.

One, two days before it brown pulp.
Ain’t-right moneybags bring brown fruit home.
Never get even little gulp.
Brain-slight moneybags got pulp in dome.

Pay, he’d pay way mo’.
Ain’t-bright moneybags bring brown fruit home.
Pay, oh he pay through the nose, this ain’t no layaway.
Brain-shite moneybags: brown pulp in dome.

Now oozing-goo pulp, too-ripe banana;
Ain’t-right moneybags got pulp in his home.
Stuck with goo pulp for beaucoup manna.
Ain’t-bright pump-out swag buy “art”—then gone.

One, two days before it brown pulp.
Brain-plight moneybags bring brown fruit home.
He brain-dead or even got a pulse?
Ain’t-bright moneybags, be dunce in his home..

Pay, he’d pay way mo’.
Brain-blight moneybags de putz in his home.
Pay, oh he pay through the nose, de money go away.
Ain’t-bright moneybags: de schmuck in his home.

What is the tally, grand tally for banana?
Way high bunch o’ cash, squandered by dolt.
What is the tally to carry home banana?
Way high bunch o’ cash…a money molt.

Pay dough, way d’oh!
Brain-flight moneybags bring some fruit home.
Pay, oh he pay through the nose, de money go away
Ain’t-bright; Monet bagged would show: mind ain’t blown.

They do it all the time - these phony connesseurs. Now can you come up with a parody about that gargantuan rock outside the LACMA?
