My Student Loans

Tune:  The Girl That I Marry


I live at my Dad’s in a basement pad

‘Cause now I’m no longer an undergrad

McDonald’s pays my way

To so many luxurious things I can’t say

My student loans are a piece of cake

They take three-quarters of what I make

Lest I take off / Or I’m laid off

Only thirty years more and they’re paid off

And then I can marry

No reason to tarry there’ll be.


So Canadian kids will be poor or dumb

Or flee to countries, and there are some

Like Germany, Denmark and Spain

And Sweden and Cuba and Ireland so sane

Where tuition is free just as it should be

If they can do it, then why can’t we?

It’s a given /  While they’re livin’

That they can’t make their way when debt-driven

A lousy beginning’s

What student loan living will be.
