With Apologies To Pee Wee King, Chilton Price, and Redd Stewart

I’m responsible for the software that keeps track of our town’s collections, water, real-estate, and motor vehicle excise bills, as well as parking tickets, and most recently assumed co-responsibility for printing the bills as well, so repurposing The Duprees You Belong To Me made sense.

See the water bills along the Nile

Parking tickets step out in style and

Real-estate payments begin to smile ’cause

They belong to me.

Excise service warrants wet with rain

You owe a bundle, and that’s a shame

But pay your bill on time to avoid the pain and

They belong to me

I’m still working on the rest of the lyrics. I find it helpful to bring a positive attitude to work.

And here is the original.
