  • Song Lyrics:
    (parody of "A Taste Of Honey" by Herb Alpert & Tijuana Brass)
    I wanted to get
    Some new girlfriends,
    So I went and bought
    A Mercedes Benz.
    A waste of money!
    Eight thousand bucks down the drain.

    I thought the girls
    Would get wild and reckless,
    So I bought cultured pearls
    And a diamond necklace.
    A waste of money!
    That cost me four thousand more.

    They were returned,
    I got no girls.
    They repossessed
    Both the car and the pearls.

    I styled my hair
    Just like Cary Grant's.
    Bought a pair
    Of those new tight pants.
    A waste of money!
    Household Finance took my pants.

    The female gender,
    I just don't get it.
    Just when I'm out
    Of both cash and credit
    I found a honey!
    And this is what's funny,
    She don't need my money,
    She works for Household Finance.
