The Lyrics

Eh...be careful who you borrow money from...
Oh I'm being followed by some goons I know, goons I owe, goons pry dough
Beatin' and choppin' gonna soon follow, goons hollow, mud wallow

And I may never use my hands, bruised, and how! I can't stand
Oh I may have some injured glands, oh hey.....the goons went berserk and more
And I am really quite a sight, multi-colored face a fright
Look like a zombie late at night, oh hey.... I look like I've died before

Oh I'm being pounded by some goons I know, goons I owe, goons pry dough
Beatin' and knockin' on my head hollow, goons follow, bad blood flow

Next time they'll fill me full of lead, if that loan is not paid yet
They'll shoot me even if I beg, oh hey.... 'cause those goons are so hardcore
Or maybe they will have me drown, down so deep, won't be found
I'll wear some ce-ment shoes, go south, oh hey.... and off the board-walk...

And they will never find me, not since that fateful night
So you take care to mind me, don't borrow from those goons, all right?

Oh I'm being murdered by some goons I know, goons I owe, goons pry dough
Shootin' and droppin' to the ground I go, moon won't show, swoon follows
Goons I know, goons I owe, goons follow, goons pry dough!

Great job, 21! I see you deal with AIG too. ;D

The "One Chained" Malady... $555 to help bail you out. :)

You got that right, Blackjack! That's why I never borrow money from everyone, otherwise you'd have to work off the loan, or worse! I hope you can receive another $555 to bail you out!

Card-countin' not workin' out for ya, eh? ;-) Get an honest job.:-D

Being in the foreclosure business, naturally I'm rooting for the goons -- wish the law would let me hire them. You have thirty days to repay the $555, plus vig -- that's, uh (hits calculator) $1,273,647.52 -- or all of your songs will be repossessed and auctioned off to the highest bidder -- assuming there would be any. :-)

A bit more dangerous than being followed by a moonshadow; nicely written

Tacky, tacky, tacky.... ;) [It occurs to me that Scrooge was also in the foreclosure business... oooooooooohhhhh!!!!!] xoxo

Owe a debt of gratitude to Warren Baker, Old Man Ribber, Fiddlegirl, Christie Marie M, Tommy Turtle (harsh!), Phil Nelson, Timmy1k and FG. (special thanks for the Scrooge rebuttal) ;-)

@ BJ21: All in good fun, as always between us. :-D (note the emoticons in the first comment. .. I didn't *intend* to be in the foreclosure business, I intended to be in the financing business. But thanks to massive screwups by Congress, Presidents (plural) and the Fed, I ended up in the latter, like it or not. ... and Courts are prejudiced against lenders, regardless of what the contracts say, or what the facts are. (You didn't pay. Should be end of story.)

FG: I always thought that Scrooge was the most sympathetic character in the story (other than the "differently-abled Tim) .... S. got a raw deal, so I never much cared for the story or the implied message. ... also thought both you and BJ, esp BJ, would recognize the satire of organized-crime sharks and those who follow the law strictly, but .... (sigh)

BJ21: You're welcome for the Scrooge re-rebuttal. Now pay your debts like an honest man! :-)

2Eagle: No need to cite the source; I've already parodied it (naturally!)

Enjoy! (including the political history) ... and, uh, I assume you paid all cash for your house, car, and everything else you own? ;)

"would recognize the satire of organized-crime sharks VERSUS those who follow the law strictly, but..." -- result of rushing to comment before watching the rushing and passing (the buck?)
