The Lyrics

You bought bed sheets, thread count of 850
And 60 tight blue jeans
You bought a dozen glass cans to hold "things"--
To hold all your old crap and your bling--
Then that oak wood trunk to hold your shoes--
Those toy cats, gold canes, and membership dues
Yes, you are my hot baby that I've fallen in love
But now you have to see, our bank account's crud!

Don't you know, don't you know, nowhere to go, we're in the hole!
I do know, I do know, it's no-go, we're in the hole!
Ho-ho-ho, we're in the hole...

You bought the drinks--you were playing host
You drank the most--Caesar's ghost!!
You're so material, since the day you were born
You spent our last cash on your DVD porn
Now can't you now see that we aren't kings
We have a sub-sub level credit rating
Where did you get that jewel-encrusted glove?
Now I feel sick, I'm woozy, I'm about to cough blood

To the bone, to the bone, why don't you know, we're in the hole?
Skip the scones, skip the scones, why don't you know, we're in the hole?
It's not just low--we're in the hole!
Must eat beans, stock up beans,
It's not just low--we're in the hole!

We had a life of modest means
That was all in your dreams--
Our lives are sunk, call up a truce
Please stop it, this game we're both gonna lose
Our credit rating's sucky, time for some tough love
Come on, girl, just give, me the debit card, bud!

Let it go, let it go, let's play Lotto, we're in the hole!
Let it go, let it go, need win Lotto, we're in the hole!
Stop the show, stop the show, sell your bongos, we're in the hole!
Whad-ya know, can't afford coal
No new jeans, no new jeans
Or else schmo, you must go
Modest means, modest means
Funds so low
We're in the hole
Funds so low
We're in the hole

Top notch vintage Agrimorfee! This would have been a contender in almost any round of SOTM back in the day, you totally nailed it, including the bluesy feel that comes from the instruments backing the new lyrics. I only have one quibble, and it's so minor that I'm almost ashamed for bringing it up, but the line "You spent our last cash on your DVD porn" did throw me off the flow for a second, thinking "Is the narrative female in this verse? Is this a duet?". Then I just got back into it and enjoyed the rest.

Girls can watch porn too Peter. Well done Agrimorfee! Great song choice. Less swing and more blues which is unusual for this band but I really liked the end result here and how well it matches with the story that you're telling here.

Overall, a pretty solid effort. Not to get nitpicky (but, well, here I go...) but the pacing was a bit off in some places. Maybe only by one syllable, but it happened in multiple spots. However, to make up for that, the rhyming was spot on (both at the end of each line as well as matching it up to the OS). Great work!

It reminds me of that free credit report commercial jingle I used to parody. If given a chance, I'm sure you would have written some good ones like the earlier jingles which were funny...time to duck and cover in the hole.

(Artistry) I agree with Abbott on the pacing, and I've never heard of the expression "in the hole" to mean "damn near bankrupt", but still this was pretty good. Pity the OS was so slow. 555!

(Artistry) Tonally this is perfect! THis is just a man (or woman) "singin' the blues" as the OS says. Not outright, ha-ha, but you were obviously going for a more narrative approach, and I really liked that. I concur that the pacing had some issues here and there, but that's minor. There's one line however that I really need to comment on, "You bought a dozen glass cans to hold 'things'". Cans are made of metal (tin, aluminum, etc.), if it's made of glass, it's now a jar (which would've worked pacing wise too. Either "tin cans" or "glass jars") THat's just being nit-picky, but it bothered me a little. Otherwise, good stuff!
