The Lyrics

It's that time of month again... and I'm not talkin' about the female trouble. (Oh, and I mean "balls" metaphorically)
Looks like Visa's got me now,
They got my APR up really high.
Guess, they really got me now,
On all those things that I just had to buy.

Visa's really got me now,
It's almost up to twenty-one percent
Oh yeah, they really got me now,
They got me so I can't make payments,
They really got me!
They really got me!

Please, I wanna be debt free
Got no money so my hands are tied.
Should I file for bankruptcy,
Or maybe I should simply run and hide.

Looks like Visa's got me now,
I could really use some good advice
Oh yeah, need an accountant now,
They put my balls into a vice!
They really got me!
They really got me!
They really got me!

(Optional 3rd verse)

Geez, I am the biggest fool,
I knew that "low fixed rate" would not last.
Skis, and a new swimming pool,
Boy that balance sure went up so fast.

Looks like Visa's got me now,
They got me so I can't sleep at night
Oh yeah, cuz Visa's got me now,
My budget's already so tight!
They really got me!
They really got me!
They really got me!

I had a girlfriend named Lisa once. She had pretty much the same effect on my economy, so Im singing this one with a small personal adjustment... ;-)

Hi hear you. Maybe Lisa secretly worked for Visa? I hate women like that, they give girlfriends a bad name!

Good job! Here's a 555-payment-easy-installment-plan.

Credit card companies are today's equivalent of a loan shark. Nice job!

This would be a whole lot funnier if it wasn't also true for me, but you get all fives anyway.
Leah Lockhart - November 22, 2003 - Report this comment
Thank you Tim, Diva and Michael!

INTERESTing parody. Ha, ha! Get it? I kill me. Fives here.

Anytime, Leah. The Espresso Garden site has the schedule. Also you can click on "Write a song about us" and hear Mari and I sing a song about the place.
Guy - November 23, 2003 - Report this comment
I'd give you credit for a great song at a 5.55 interest rate but your credit is probably over extended and your card declined most likely as this parody would indicate. Great job!
Leah Lockhart - November 23, 2003 - Report this comment
Thanks Guy! Can I get that rate on a balance transfer? ;-o OK Rick, one of these days when I work up the nerve!
Rick D - November 23, 2003 - Report this comment
Mari brought the music for "Your Song" just in case you showed up. Anything on guitar I can do. Since it's a family venue, Doing "I've got a Beaver" or "Your Dong" might not be cool. But we all have plenty of other options. E-mail us if you want to chat cone of silence. Or let your fingers do the walking.
Leah Lockhart - November 23, 2003 - Report this comment
Hey THANKS!! Maybe I will then...I'd do the Visa song but I don't know if I can sing the Kinks. And I'd only do the beaver song at a drag bar or something. And "Your Dong" is Johnny's.
Rick D - November 23, 2003 - Report this comment
Yeah, I just used that as an example of what we can't do, as opposed to your version, which would go over well. Liberal crowd.

Only problem is, I'm not sure if I can sing at Elton's range. I am an alto, but not a tenor...
Rick D - November 23, 2003 - Report this comment
We can fix that. Either change key or change your sex. Which do you prefer? Transpose or transgender?
Leah Lockhart - November 23, 2003 - Report this comment
LOL... Maybe we can get Johnny's guy to build a little something for me!

It wasn't noticed earlier, but the decade is wrong; it should be 60s. But the parody itself was really good, even if one small piece of info has a discrepancy.
