It is driving me nuts  Shocked!  I cannot find it on Youtube!  Angry It is called "A Waste of Money" sung by Allan Sherman (same guy who did "Hello Muddah Hello Faddah!) and I want to send it to my dad - yep, he owns a merc!

The lyrics are very good:

Lyrics to A Waste Of Money :

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.
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.

Can anyone help?  Undecided

Jess,

I take it you have tried itunes or Amazon or googled other search engines?

Amazon says I would have to pay $0.99 whereas most of his other songs are free on other sources
Itunes have never heard of him!

Just my luck - to be charged for something nobody wants!  Sad

It's the principle though.  Why pay for 1 when the rest are for free?

ugh horrible song, waste of time that was!  along with a few others which I'll refrain from mentioning in case the tune sticks (funny how they all have stupid tunes that stick)  suffice to say the one I'm really thinking of kept Ultravox's Vienna off the NO 1 slot in the charts!

So, Jackie, you are not one to bear a grudge then!  Cheesy

I have a recurring song that runs through my brain whenever any of my colleagues gets on my nerves ("I know a song that will get on your nerves! etc!").  One day, I will even sing it at the little bleeders!  Grin

Jess

I was sorry for Ultravox, Vienna was such a beautiful haunting song and to be kept off the top spot by a piece of rubbish was so unjust!

However, c'est la vie!
