The Lyrics

A recent news story states: “As many as 900 colleges are pushing students into using payment cards that carry hefty costs . . . colleges and banks rake in millions from the fees, often through secretive deals and sometimes in apparent violation of federal law.” http://articles.boston.com/2012-05-30/business/31894018_1_financial-aid-student-body-president-debit
Oh banking fees and college fees
Are spreading like a new disease
The colleges, bank companies
Big business led by bullies
Creating lots of enemies
While making rich their cronies
Oh banking fees and college fees
They sure are less than lovely

Oh banking fees and college fees
Creating mountains of financial aid
Oh banking fees and college fees
Have now become a big charade
Costs have gone up they will argue
To justify giving us the screw
Oh banking fees and college fees
Put into place by flunkies

Oh banking fees and college fees
Treating customers so rudely
Oh banking fees and college fees
Applied so very crudely
They’ll charge us every chance they get
And add to our continuing debt
Oh banking fees and college fees
Ripping us all off unduly

Well put, Jolly. They squeeze for fees however they can.

You can bank on getting shanked.

And just like the airline fees, like the ones they created for luggage to help ease the cost of rising fuel prices, the fees never go away. Good parody.
