The Lyrics

All characters and storylines in this parody are fictional and of Rebekah Dub's imagination.
R-Dub!
Let’s go!
Hey, hey, hey
It is… R-Dub!

Buddy has a cardboard hut
Up against the back door of Pizza Hut
Smokers always have to watch their step
Their wallets start a-tickling
They must have money for smoking
‘Cause Buddy goes and takes their cigarettes, ettes

He’s got an empty money bucket sitting by him
That will o-cca-sion-al-ly moonlight as an ashtray
He tried for employment, but it’s looking dim
‘Cause Buddy’s fingers get sticky
Get real sticky

Somebody guard my wallet
Buddy’s money bumming by the entrance, oh
I gotta watch my back
Or else he will follow me to the entrance, oh

He’s money bumming, money bumming by the entrance
That crazy Buddy’s money bumming by the entrance
He’s money bumming, money bumming by the entrance
That crazy Buddy’s money bumming by the entrance

Money bumming, money bumming

Ol’ Buddy got himself a buck
From a little kid who was running amok
In spite of his parents’ best wishes
He played mighty-fine guitar
From an old Gibson he snatched at the bar
Before his fingers started to itch

That money bucket got replaced with a guitar case
When beaten upon it can make a really mean bass
And then the manager baked him a cake
According to him today was
His lucky day

But it’s not lucky for me
‘Cause his new girlfriend Frankie just punched me, ow
‘Cause I wouldn’t open
My wallet so I could give them some money, ow

She’s money bumming, money bumming on his behalf
That crazy bitch is money bumming on his behalf
She’s money bumming, money bumming on his behalf
That crazy bitch is money bumming on his behalf

He’s got that money in his hand that’ll make his girlfriend stop and stare (Hey!)
No limit as to how much he can earn and where (Hey!)
He’s got that money in his hand that’ll make his girlfriend stop and stare
(Get outta his way, everybody, out right now!)
No limit as to how much he can earn and where

Thanks to her he can upgrade from cardboard to the shed
He can buy some chairs, a table, sectional, and bed
And a microwave from the Sears next door
Soon he’ll have everything all made
He’ll have it made

Somebody call Frankie in
Buddy’s not money bumming anymore, oh
She can move in with him
So she won’t be money bumming anymore, oh

No money bumming, money bumming by the entrance
Nobody’s money bumming on nobody’s behalf
No money bumming, money bum—shit, I take that back!
I saw a cop accompany security staff

Poor Buddy’s under arrest!
[sigh] Poor Buddy... though, alas, that's what he gets for having such sticky fingers.
