The Lyrics

This happens all the time up near my vacation home...
And they just bought a condo,
up near Cicero,
wasted alot of cash,
Dumping cash on lies,
cottages on their sunny islands
From their pontoon boats
They had to sell them,
So they could pay off their timeshare,
Where the bank was beat,
To their rising debt,
They bought the Brewerton Condo,
and now they're living on the street

What's the story on the Timeshare Scam?

They all settled down, and they felt like clowns,
To the debts they pay off in town,
Amid the ruins
Where they learn to fear
An angry race of Scam-shack Kings
Their shot bank accounts
While the memory of
Their once wealthy life,
A savage winter, the only month they got,
From some car dealer and his wife,
Hung on the wall, shared the condo,
With some jerk Car Salesman!

What's the story on the Timeshare Scam?

By noisy hall,
I feel appalled
I thought this trip would be heaven,
Now the my time is old,
I can't afford a home,
He never helps pay for this thing,
How they are paid in gold
Just to babble in the bathroom
All night and ruin my trip
And they wandered in
From the city of Brewerton, and took every single dime!

What's the story on the
Timeshare Scam?

I don't know if this is the truth with ALL timeshares and condos on lakes, but it's the story of basically all the reviews I've heard... Vacation hell!

It's just more crap on the snarkability of Cicero, so you can expect this...
