"Debt"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Debt!
I spent all my money in too many places
And I'm filing for bankruptcy real soon
In Debt, your only safe place to live on is on the moon
You spent all your money on a Dairy Queen Brazier
Then, you put five grand down on a plastic casket
And yet, you started payment on a Harley
Now you're in Debt!
Debt!
I've got a big debt to always haunt me
I'll pay ya much later!
Debt!
A debt! I got a major financial malady known as a debt!
Debt!
Bought a windjammer boat for 10000 pesos
Now we got outstanding balance that is so sky-high
And yet, you started payment on a Harley
Now you're in debt!
Debt!
I'll pay you much later!

Well I promised to look up your oldies but goodies, and so I have. So far, very very good. Both you and Rick D. chose "Debt" as your parody for Jet. Both are funny. Both deserve 5s. Both got 'em.

I didn't see this one before I wrote mine, but I noticed a a similarity between our styles and musical choices. I know he's one of the few here into prog rock.

Good one! Just as well I don't have a credit card or I'd be stuffed!

You've almost got it perfect, may have dropped some stitches, but a highly original idea.

A bit too short to place in this contest, but it was still pretty rich in laughs, and although the song was missing a lot, namely a lot of the "Jet"s that the original song had... It was still a pretty steady parody, and not too bad, although I could obviously tell that this was one of your earlier works. So don't take it too personally, I normally love your work, but this just didn't click for me.

Indeed, it was submitted straight from the saved WORD document that I typed back around 1998 or so. I don't think the lack of obviously repeated words on the page should in any way detract from the overall enjoyment of the piece.

(Dec 2.0) Little on the short side, bud brimming with humour. $555 for you.

Aggy, It doesn't deteriorate any from reading it alone, but following along with the original song it does, because I stumbled a few times. I still think it's a pretty good peice, but without the certain "Jet"s, I got confused...

(dec2.6) whoa, copyright 1989? I could definitely tll this is an early one of yours Ag, pre-amiright in fact, as it doesn't comply with amiright conventions like my pre-amiright parodies don't - but I loved the title sub, and the quirky gags (10000 pesos? - lol) and its use in this comp - 555

(DEC 2.6) Looks like I'm not the only one who had to rifle through the vaults for an entry this round....still, I liked the sub, and being a financial disaster zone myself, can totally relate. 555

What is it with parody writers? Are any of us solvent?
Arwen - January 02, 2008 - Report this comment
Wow...having had my share of "how am I going to pay off these credit card bills" headaches...I can relate to this. =)

(Dec) Phil, being fiscally responsible just isn't as funny. The formatting of this particular write Agri made the song seem like one run-on sentence. . .That may just be because I record more than I write, so naturally formatting sticks out to me. . .

Nice timing right after the Christmas holidays. You did us a favor by digging this back up, we are in your debt.

DEC- I noticed some lines were missing from the original, but otherwise very well done and funny, Agri.
