The Lyrics

Gotta suffer before you can sing the blues.......
The bill is long
The bill looks hard to pay
The bill is long, baby
And this is just one day
You know you shop too much, baby
I'm taking your card away

This bill is long
It's out of range for me
This is so wrong, baby
The "zeros" to infinity
Once every penny's gone
In the poorhouse I'll be

This bill's so long
This spendin' ain't no good
It's one sad song, baby
I thought you understood
Someday you'll have to pay for your own crap, baby
Once I am boxed up in wood

You know I'm free, free now baby
I'm free from your hell
Your spree, spree, baby
Is ended as well
I'm under that clover
I hope everything you must sell

Ever hear John Gorka's song "B. B. King Was Wrong" ?

Parody fits mood of original well. (Upon seeing the title, I actually expected a song about a toucan or pelican.)
