The Lyrics

He who falls for line from MasterCard shall never be master of his domain.
(instrumental opening)

This plan was brilliant.

This plan was brilliant.
A genius lure.
I'll never fix it
and that's for sure.
My wife said, "You're a shlub, Ray
a very stupid man."
For the envelope they sent me
I hadn't got a plan.

"Approved in full!"
"Approved in full!"
"Approved in full!"
It's true!
A credit card
can't be too hard
but I knew not what to do
'cause my credit score I blew.

It caught my eye.
Should've let it fly.
To think I could afford it
I must have been quite high.
So high a credit limit
I thought I could command.
But now my life is built upon
a crumbling mass of sand.

"Approved in full!"
"Approved in full!"
"Approved in full!"
It's true!
I soon did get
a mound of debt
and I don't know what to do
'cause my credit score I blew.

La-da-da da da...

"Approved in full!"
"Approved in full!"
"Approved in full!"
It's true!
There must be a banker
with a smile on his face
who'll pass me a loan on through!

But it's time to face the truth...
All my money have I blew!
Yes, I know, the last line isn't grammatically correct. You don't like it? Come and try to collect!

The pacing was not perfect and you could have described MORE humorous situations in the verses. Don't worry about grammar. Nothing I write is grammatically correct. Sometimes that becomes funny when it rhymes. I've seen that you've already did this song three times or so, so I'm guessing you are a real James Blunt fan, that is why I'm disappointed at the pacing.

I couldn't see much wrong with the pacing at all...but I hate James Blunt and rarely listen to this travesty of a song. Having said that...555

Excuse me for repeating myself, but this bears repeating - James Blunt is probably a clone of Kenny Rogers or Dan Hill. Good use of this song - 5's.

2E: If Blunt is a clone of Kenny, then it must be a Schwarzenegger/DeVito "Twins" result, where one got all the good stuff -- including the chicken franchise. To take Kenny's own analogy: When hearing Dan Hill, that's when to walk away... and when hearing James Blunt, that's when to run! Blunt's songs are what to throw away, and Kenny's are what to keep!

Much better than the last parody I read of this OS. I didn't see much problem with the pace either, and though varying the title line would have helped the humor a bit, it's still good enough for a perfect AmIRight rating.
