The Lyrics

Lately I feel like I've been repossessed from my computer, because I honestly don't have one, sure I have the computer, but where I'm working and living now I really don't have much connection... And what's a computer without Internet connection. Anyway... It's a roundabout way of saying it, but that's what inspired this parody.
I heard my mom say
“Don’t go take something you cannot pay for, baby”
(Oh no)
But with loans and credit
There’s many things that I bought
That I can’t buy or won’t buy
But I had to buy it for some fun
I bought too much with it
I just bought too much
Oh no, Bank

(I think)

I’m repossessed
Took a whole bunch of my stuff, Dang!
Pearls in yoyos, and pogo sticks!
They took a while bunch of my stuff, Dang!
The things that I got used to
Like TP that’s 4-ply
It’s like the more I spent the more they want
They took my business ties
(Oh no! Bank!)

Oy Vey!
I couldn’t pay
Back off all my dues
This can’t be real! (There goes my platform shoes!)
And now they’ve got me pissed
They say I’m full of greed
It’s the fine print that I just didn’t read

Hurl!
(Crap! Oh no!)
I am so full of fear
It’s not just spare change
Stuff’s removed
I read their claim
And now I am feelin’ screwed!

Repossessed
Took a whole bunch of my stuff, Crap!
Like Hohos, and Snow Globes, and Oboes! Yikes!
They took a whole bunch of my stuff, Crap!
No dough now

Dude, If I could make some green
And pay these suckers back
Yeah, a bit of green is all I need
But my work makes me jack
McJobs suck!

And now they regain
All the things I wear
They want my toothbrush
And Rogaine for my hair
Still, They’ll keep robbing me
Until I’m robbed blind
Not metaphorically
They took my contact eye

I’m giving you a warning
These banks won’t cheer
If you take out a loan
And you’re approved
Then if you’re late
When you’re paying off your dues

(You’re)
Repossessed
They’ll take a whole bunch of your stuff, babe
Screw you, Bank!

“Warning: It may take half of your cash
To buy it
But you can believe it’s going to take the rest of your cash
To keep it”

Oh no, Bank!

I’m Repossessed!
They took a bunch of my stuff, Dang!
Yeah, my Volvo, my Fro Glow, and Dodo birds
Took a whole bunch of my stuff, Dang!

Yup, Repossessed!
Took way too much of my stuff, Damn!
Oh Damn!
My Dojo, my Tow Rope and Frodo ring
Took a whole bunch of my stuff, Damn!

Grrrrrrr!!!
Repossessed
You took a whole bunch of my stuff bank!

Haha, you and me, Matty, both for the song and the real life issues! Will reserve full commentary and votes for actual Artistry judgement later...

Well, we know what possessed you to write this song. Well done, I was wondering where the inspiration for the OS came from until I saw it was the current Artistry comp.

Hey, well It's still the one I'm doing also. Nice idea Matty, echoing Agri--I reserve full commentary for the Artistry:)

(Artistry) It's gotta be bad when they take your toothbrush and toilet paper (or, as they prefer to say in the commercials, "bathroom tissue"). Great idea, good writing, but what's a contact eye?
Matthias - June 10, 2008 - Report this comment
Rex: I was referring to a glass eye (I think they call them contact eyes, although I may be wrong)
Agrimorfee - June 11, 2008 - Report this comment
(Artistry) This was pretty funny. What could have made it even funnier was if the bank was taking back REALLY extravagent and unneccesary items, like a mink fur-lined kitchen sink, or a diamond-crusted spatula...something like that. :)

(Artistry) Absolutely great, snow globes and oboes, Fro Glow and Dodo's. Where the hell do you shop?

(Artistry) Hmm, that was pretty cool, but I don't really know much about repossessing and stuff, so I can't say much else.

(Artistry) I can tell you this TCOP, if you can avoid it do, repo sucks. . .I've never lost anything in that way--but I've seen it happen, kudos as I feel this was particularly well timed as a release with the current state of our economy--at least here in America.

I liked it Matty. Good job listing funny things that were "repossessed". I give you 5s, plus interest.

Matt - I LOLed at them doing a repo on your 4 ply TP. They will stop at nothing. Try doing nothing and see if they stop. Man you really had a lot of "unique" stuff - too bad it's all gone. I feel for you brother. And hey you did a parody on an OS that I know very well. This certainly helped me to enjoy this write a lot more. Excellent write!

ABC: Nice job, but this seemed like a list parody. Excellent idea, but a whole bunch of random stuff that they took there...lol
bobpiecheese - September 23, 2010 - Report this comment
(ABC5) I now know what repossession is, but I stand by my previous assessment of the parody being pretty cool.

Boy, I sure hope those repo guys stay away from me! Funny stuff!

(ABC Q & R) Great job, I knew a guy who was a repo man, and he once repo'd everything in a McMansion (including toilet paper) that over $1 million was owed on, stripped it to the studs since the owner hid gold and jewelry inside the walls. Very funny parody here, and $555,000 toward your debts from the First Bank of AmIRight.
