The Lyrics

I hereby propose that MBNA use this as a commercial for their bank (and pay me royalties every time they use it of course). I have yet to jump on the YMCA bandwagon that exists on this site (presumably because of it beginning with the letter Y and therefore being at the top of the new parodies list) so I thought it was time I caught up with the rest of you.
Young man, checking fees got you down?
I said, young man, minimum fees abound?
I said, young man, have you just been turned down?
There's no need to be unhappy.

Young man, there's a place you can go.
I said, young man, if your bank takes your dough.
You can stay there, and I'm sure you will find
that their A.T.M. fees are fine!

It's fun to bank with the M.B.N.A
It's fun to bank with the M.B.N.A
Pay your bills all online, do them all at one time,
the experience is sublime!!

I do my banking with M.B.N.A
Because its fun with the M.B.N.A
You get zero percent, on your MasterCard
You can take out an overdraft ...

Young man, are you tired of that fee?
I said, young man, checking wants to be free!
I said, young man, this one you can afford
and the line is not out the door

No man when his check takes a bounce
I said No man, likes to juimp at the chance
to pay fees of thirty-four ninety-nine
When he's already on bad times

That's why I bank with the M.B.N.A
It's fun to bank with the M.B.N.A
We are open all day, tellers speak En-ga-lay
and you won't have to wait all day!

I do my banking with M.B.N.A
Because its fun with the M.B.N.A
If you can't pay your loan, there is no need to moan
Get a forebearance on the phone!

Young man, you will need to invest
I said, young man, here's a thought to digest
you can't lose out, if you buy a CD
It's insured by F.D.I.C.

It's fun to bank with the M.B.N.A
It's fun to bank with the M.B.N.A
Pay your bills all online, do them all at one time,
the experience is sublime!!

I do my banking with M.B.N.A
Because its fun with the M.B.N.A
You get zero percent, on your MasterCard
You can take out an overdraft ...

I, for one, think that MBNA is the DEVIL...for some reason they expect me to pay them back when I use my MBNA card...what's that all about? Anyway...this parody is great, Laurence...I will write the url on my next check to them! 555!

I've got a card from these guys, so I liked the ironies in your parody.

Great stuff. But I have to agree with Arwen -- they're just as much the spawn of Satan as any other bank, slimy enough to use this fine parody to sucker even more people into paying their hidden 5.55% late fees.

Fine work, 5 5 5. Don't bank with them, but have banked with similar thieves

Nice job. 5/5/5. However it's from the seventies. But I liked it anyway.
