What if the Beatles had sung about plain text accounting?

As far as anyone knows, the Beatles were not into plain text accounting. But had they been, would they have written a song like the following?

All my credit card debt seemed so easy to pay
Now my savings have vanished away
And I believe there’s still more to pay

I’m not quite the saver I used to be
Now collection agents are calling me
Oh, all the bills came so suddenly

Why I had to charge
I don’t know, I couldn’t say
My bills are large
I wish they’d go away

Earning points was a simple game to play
Now I have no way to pay
Budgeting with PTA
Would’ve been a better way
