The Lyrics

After submitting my new Jewel Parody "Who Will Pay The Toll?", nobody voted or commented on it after two days. Therefore, I decided to think of another one and put it up on the site. I notice that only two other people have done parodies of Boyz II Men so far, which is astonishing considering the number of hits and albums they have released in their time! At least several misheard lyrics of theirs are on this site.
We don't buy what we can't afford
And we don't even know how to make too much cash
Don't even think to order it now
'Cause when we get the bill who knows how we can pay?
Some people are so rich, and some blow their dough really fast!

Let's don't wait 'til our assets run dry
We might watch all our stuff go goodbye
Let's don't wait 'til our assets run dry
We'll make the biggest mistake of our lives,
Don't do it baby!

Now I know that you like that CD
Or even what you see that's on cable TV
Oh baby it's just things we don't need, yeah
'Cause you and I both know that we're on poverty
Why should we buy this crap now?
Why should we waste all our dough?

Let's don't wait 'til our assets run dry
We might watch all our stuff go goodbye
Let's don't wait 'til our assets run dry
We'll make the biggest mistake of our lives,
Don't do it baby!

Some people make big bucks and some drive a fancy new car

Let's don't wait 'til our assets run dry
We might watch all our stuff go goodbye
Let's don't wait 'til our assets run dry
We'll make the biggest mistake of our lives,
Don't do it baby!

Don't buy that baby!

Don't buy that baby!
As you can tell, this is about two people on poverty that barely get by, they can't afford much. Please DO LEAVE COMMENTS BELOW IF YOU CAN!!!! I'm still not getting enough comments on any of my parodies, other than "Will I Have Money Tomorrow?" and "This Land Is My Land!" If you like this song, I would really appreciate it if you did click on this link and tell me how you like the other parodies I've written - this is my eleventh one on this site! Comments are always welcome, and I encourage everyone who has heard the original to vote on the pacing, funniness, and overall rating!
