The Lyrics

TXU or Texas Energy is the largest electricity provider in north and central Texas. My parody references an actual experience I had trying to get TXU to correct a 12,861 dollar bill I received for one month of usage. My bill was corrected only after I contacted the local Fox affiliate who ran my story on the evening news. Ironically, the the whole problem began after an ice storm caused by meter to stop turning and I got a bill for $0. I checked my meter and reported it as not working to TXU. They replaced the meter and sent me a $12,861 bill. If you live in Texas and your meter stops working DON’T REPORT IT. I learned afterward that the power company can only back charge 6 months if they fail to notice your meter quit working. Anything beyond 6 months they have to eat.
Oi, oi, oi, oi, oi, oi, oi, oi, oi, oi, oi, oi, oi, oi, oi

It’s the highest bill I’ve seen yet
Makes me want to scream
The Power company won’t relent
12,861 what do you mean?
This electric bill just cannot be
Even if I ran all my lights
This isn’t fun
It’s too much strife
And they won’t make it right

Cause they’re TXU, charge what they like
TXU; they’ll turn off the light
TXU; I’m their power load
TXU; til my transformer explodes

My bill’s twelve thousand, eight hundred sixteen
On the “Flexrate” plan
For how many months; just one
I don’t understand
That’s more power
Then I used my whole life
I’ve been on the phone for
Most of the night
With a guy in some India town
Who keeps jerking me around

‘Cause they’re TXU, charge what they like
TXU; they’ll turn off the light
TXU; I’m their power load
TXU; ‘til my transformer explodes

T.X.U., (oi, oi, oi)
T.X.U., (oi, oi, oi)
T.X.U., (oi, oi, oi)
T.X.U., (oi, oi, oi)

T.X.U., (oi, oi, oi) Telling of my plight
T.X.U., (oi, oi, oi) On the TV news tonight
T.X.U., (oi, oi, oi), I got to unload
T.X.U., My disdain just flowed
