Can I buy on one computer and download with on another?

I go to boarding school (which I am at right now) and I would like to dl a song off iTunes but the account information is my parents. Is there a way for my parents to buy the song on there computer and have me download it on another one over long distances?

They could send you gift cards.

don't you need a account to use the gift cards. All of my purchased songs are done with my parents account (aka I'm not getting the password)

downloads arent billed to a computer, they are billed to a credit card, therefore as long as you knew your parent's account and password you can download all the songs you want and it will automaticaly bill them.

Have they already authorized your computer to play songs purchased with their account? If they haven't, they have to give you their password anyway.
