The Lyrics

1800TH PARODY, Y'ALL! And as is my tradition, I have taken a song I parodied back when I was stupid and inexperienced and re-parody along a vaguely similar topic. Last time I whined about paying too much money. This time, let's do the exact opposite and plan to spend more money!
Been called greedy, cheap, a real Scrooge right to my face
Can't hurt my bones with words but my heart still stings like hell
When it comes to fees, so reluctant to just pay
Drownin' in my green, wanna quit it, buddy

I don't wanna be stingy no more
Comfortable enough to splurge on shit
Last time I opened my wallet, I was sure
The coins were dated 1896
I don't wanna be thrifty no more (ooh-whoa-oh-oh)
Sometimes I think I overplan for shit (whoa-oh-oh-oh)
Waste time with maths with charities outside my door
I don't wanna be stingy anymore

Ooh-whoa-oh, ooh-whoa-oh
Oh-oh, oh-ooh-oh-ooh-oh-oh
Ooh-whoa-oh, ooh-whoa-oh
Oh-oh, oh-ooh-oh-ooh-oh-oh

Now it's hard for me to just drop all my habits
Write down what I need, must learn to stray from it
Don't keep cash on me, blocks me mentally
From spendin' more, I need to card all things
It's much less limitin' and the time it takes is less
Don't do maths, just buy

I don't wanna be stingy no more (ooh-whoa-oh-oh)
Stop the act of "I can't pay for this" (whoa-oh-oh-oh)
I've been savin' all my cash since I was four (ooh-whoa-oh-oh)
Got reams of notes to track all the int'rest
I don't wanna be thrifty no more (ooh-whoa-oh-oh)
Come off as a total ass with this (whoa-oh-oh-oh)
Some say it's smart, but I don't want to be a bore
I don't wanna be stingy anymore

Ooh-whoa-oh, ooh-whoa-oh
Oh-oh, oh-ooh-oh-ooh-oh-oh
Ooh-whoa-oh, ooh-whoa-oh
Oh-oh

Got enough for food, it's true
Got enough for stupid fees
Got enough to fund a chunk of lots of people's GoFundMe's
I've got enough to pay for lights (pay for lights)
I've got enough for my net feeds
Got enough for all that crap and more so holdin' back just seems rude

I don't wanna be stingy no more (ooh-whoa-oh-oh)
Paranoid 'bout how I'll pay for shit (whoa-oh-oh-oh)
The economy could use a push for sure (ooh-whoa-oh-oh)
I've never heard of one that's grown too big
I don't wanna be thrifty no more (ooh-whoa-oh-oh)
Know it may sound like I'm a braggin' prick (whoa-oh-oh-oh)
But I'd prefer to throw around my cash than hoard
I don't wanna be stingy anymore

Ooh-whoa-oh, ooh-whoa-oh
Oh-oh, oh-ooh-oh-ooh-oh-oh
Ooh-whoa-oh, ooh-whoa-oh
I don't wanna be stingy anymore (oh-oh, oh-ooh-oh-ooh-oh-oh)
I don't wanna be stingy no more (ooh-whoa-oh, ooh-whoa-oh)
I don't wanna be stingy no more, no (oh-oh, oh-ooh-oh-ooh-oh-oh)
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know (ooh-whoa-oh, ooh-whoa-oh)
I don't wanna be stingy anymore

Which parody is more accurate to my living situation? Neither. No, you're not getting a third parody about what it actually is, that's my business.
