The Accountants Song

04 Dec

These lyrics are from a parody of Lily Allen’s – The Fear which you can hear and see if you follow the link.

There may have been a time in my career when I worked with accountants. Whilst I worked with them I also provided articles for the Firms in-house staff magazine. The Accountants Song was written for the magazine and I wasn’t really sure how they would view it. As it turned out, they really liked it. Thank goodness for that.

Please enjoy.

The Accountants Song (A parody of Lily Allens – The Fear).


I’ve passed my exams and I’m now fully ready,

To be an accountant but I’ll keep things quite steady.

I’ll wear business clothes and do things right and proper

I’ll follow procedures to avoid a show stopper.

I’ll keep to the budget, I won’t take forever,

I’ll not use a taxi, I’ll walk in all weather

I’ll hand in reports and my boss will just love them

I’ll bend over backwards for clients to help them.


John Majors my hero, he’s so cool.

He left the circus he’s no fool

He’s an accountant, he’s a star

He chose the best profession by far.

At the weekend I’ll go out let my hair down,

I’ll hit the clubs with my friends when we’re in town

I’ll put on my make-up, make sure not to smudge it,

And of course when I’m out I’ll stay well within budget.

Some of my friends think accountings a bit sad,

They’re talking stupid, according to my Dad.

He says they know nothing and they spend too much money.

When their card bill comes in, that’s when they start to worry.


I know what’s right and what’s wrong,

Accounting is where I belong

When will my friends see the light?

Agree that I’ve got things right.

There are times when I dream about fast cars,

Or of living the life of those Hollywood film stars.

But I’m an accountant and I earn not bad money,

In the summer I might go somewhere quite sunny.


I’m an accountant, I do my best, all the time.

I’m ambitious which is not a crime.

My partners an accountant too

Being an accountant could be right for you

      Thanks SB.

      I’m planning to get all my parodies recorded and up into to You Tube.

      It’s just a bit of fun.
