Set to the great song - "Fast Car" by Tracy Chapman - illustrating the pitfalls of traveling sans credit card.

You got a smashed car,
You got a ticket you couldn't pay,
Lucky that guy was there,
Gave you the dough to get outta the way.
Everything was better,
'Til you cut the corner, crashed into the booth.
None of this would've have happened,
If you'd pack plastic, now that's the truth.

To remember all your stories, Tony, that you tell,
Mike from Burke will send you a taunt &
You'll read a Shad haiku for us &
There's 5 jinglers beltin' out a chorus & 
That is why, your stories will never die & 
that is why, the weasels should just free you now,
free you now,
free you now.
