The Lyrics

This is the tragic tale of a person who used his credit card too much, and had to become a beggar...
If I could have a little more money
Would my nose still be so runny?
Pray for moolah to Dalai Lama
Or walk ahead in torn pajamas?

Do I have the leg
To saw off for effect?
I'll get that done for free
No cents with me, last time I checked

If I could have a little more money
Would my nose still be so runny?

I know where I went wrong:

My lifestyle determined my debtfile!

Keep wishing, that the horrid thing
Was never born, was never born:

Plastic tic tic tic tic tic toc
Plastic tic tic tic tic tic toc!

My shoe is where the pied piper hid rats
And my dinner each day is ginger fried bats
Treading stony alleys of scorn
I shouldnt have bought so much of porn!

Do I have the leg
To saw off for effect?
I'll get that done for free
No cents with me, last time I checked

My shoe is where the pied piper hid rats
And my dinner each day is ginger fried bats

I know where I went wrong:

My lifestyle determined my debtfile!

Keep wishing, that the horrid thing
Was never born, was never born:

Plastic tic tic tic tic tic toc
Plastic tic tic tic tic tic toc!

My lifestyle (Rats are food)
Determines my Debtfile (Roadkill's food)
A shopping spree (Porn is food)
That forces me to saw off my knee (It all tastes good)

Good to see you finally made this idea Letaur. Needed a bit of work, but funny.
