DEBT IS A VERY DANGEROUS THING

DEBT IS A VERY DANGEROUS THING
(To tune of “Love is a Many Splendored Thing,” by Sammy Fain and Paul Francis Webster from 1955 film of same name)

Debt
Is a very dangerous thing
Debt will lead you on, and make you want
Every single thing

Debt is cunning and exotic
It’s like a strong narcotic
When you can borrow, you feel like a king

Then
You no longer pay your loan
And the bankers call
And come take all, of the things you own

There’s a lesson to this story
Loud, alarming bells should ring
Yes debt is,
A very dangerous thing

Refrain:
Debt
Is a very dangerous thing
Lets you feel the world
Is a string-of-pearls
Dangling on your string

But its spell soon breaks
That thrill’s a fake
You’re left untangling string
Yes debt is
A very dangerous thing.

    Hi Red,

    I missed this one, it’s very funny. “Love Is A Many Splendored Thing” is such an overblown song, and it’s almost as impossible to sing as the Star Spangled Banner!!

    Okay, I’ve never heard a funny debt reduction song until now. It’s really cute and already stuck in my head. 🙂
