The Lyrics

List'ning to a tape
watching Rikki Lake
on the chair with the vibrating coil

Hear my door bell ring
open my mail thing
The bills inside, soon Ill start to boil

Having to pay again, that Damn Electric Bill
But I dont have cash left in the vault
Some people pay with the cash that they make
but I dont
I dont have a job

I dont know the reason
Tv's in a new season
but its on 24-7 too boot

I play all my CDs
watch too much Tv
I leave my computer on all day too

Having to pay again, that Damn Electric Bill
But I dont have cash left in the vault
Some people pay with the cash that they make
but I dont
Hell, I could get a job

turned on the stove top
wanted a pop tart
plugged the toaster into where it goes

then I plugged in the blender
Turned on the pretender
why I pay so much, I guess it shows

Having to pay again, that Damn Electric Bill
But I dont have cash left in the vault
Some people pay with the cash that they make
but I dont
I need a damn job

Having to pay again, that Damn Electric Bill
But I dont have cash left in the vault
Some people pay with the cash that they make
but I dont
Oh yeah, I need a damn job

I had some trouble on the pacing but the funniness made up for it. I gave you a 4-5-5. Good job on this one!!

How funny it is, and being able to empathize over electric bills, saved this one for me. This is the kind of parody where a guy should get a second chance, tweak it and re-post it, because there's a really good one here waiting to be hammered out.

Clever and humorous - but your chorus would have worked better if "vault" and "job" rhymed.
