The Lyrics

I always thought his original song was perfectly depressing..A friend of mine sings it very well at karaoke shows..and it got me thinking that - if it was done during the big depression maybe it would sound like this..and if I can't get my friend to sing it, you know darn well I will.
"Foreclosed" is what they said alright
And I should get to packin'
Undisclosed, they'll send their goons
Out to my home
And disposed of, now I dread
( I think I hocked my -Smith and Wesson-)
And I think that lenders last name
Was Capone !

Now, his face I am familiarized
From posters saying : WANTED :
And it's chillin' me that he may come my way
Would he tell me 'bout his cement shoes
And sleepin' with the fishes
If asked what my last wish is, I would say...

I owed you dough...oh, I owed you dough...
I know I delayed too long..paying back
And that to you.. it is a sin
I owed you I have to go..?
Now I found my Waterloo, last time I'll ever
Write.. bad I.O.U.'s again

I knew a man who once woke up with
A horse head that's been severed
They said "capiche" but he did not understsand
The old boy,who's out five million,
Shit his pants and cried for hours
The way he did when his life first began

I hear-tell Scarface that you're pissed off
At your cousins-Vince and Tony
Accidentally lost all your tax returns
You'll get ball and chained together
And spend time with one old crony
God bless the I.R.S. you're finally burned !

Did you say?

I owed you dough...oh, I owed you dough...
I know I delayed too long..paying back
And that to you, it is a sin

I owed you I have to go...
Now I found my Waterloo, last time I'll ever
See the light of day again

Whew !
(Got close to my Waterloo, this boy will never write an I.O.U.....AGAIN )

Thanks Peregrin, I always appreciate it when anyone takes the time write me a note (I don't do it enough..comment ,that is)...Likes, dislikes and funny and interesting comments can make my day......There's a lot to and do learn on this stage..We all try to choose our words carefully so they entertain and not to offend (well, maybe most of us) ..Free for us to use are a world of musicians, poets and singers offerings...I thank them for letting me steal a little talent now and then....( oh brother,sounds like I,m getting a Grammy or something like that -sorry) Anyways....May the pluckers keep on pluckin' and us twuckers keep on twuckin'... Yahoo !! (( man.. this guy"s a cornball, all I said is that I liked it))

Reminds me of a Simpsons episode!:

An awards statue? Oh wait, it's a Grammy.

Hey, don't throw your trash down here!
