The Lyrics

Yes, I am doing a parody of the edited version. I feel it is more well known than Let's Get Retarded and it's the only version I have. I hope that the pacing doesn't change between the two. So, here is a song about the addictive nature of shopping at Target. Enjoy!
Let's go to Target today,

And I've got gift cards, gift cards, and gift cards, gift cards,
And gift cards, gift cards, and gift cards, gift cards,
And gift cards, gift cards, and gift cards, gift cards,
And gift cards, gift cards, and gift cards, gift cards, and –

They've got munchies to TV sets,
So much great stuff, I have to break a check!
Whether in store or on the internet,
My intellect's perplexed by the many tape decks and techs,
I'm losing all inhibitions to make ludicrous decisions,
Even though I've got less than 50 in Hustler's Ambition,
But when I saw that, I reached into my wallet,
You wouldn't believe how much stuff they have,
My eyes are completely burned out,
On the demo games they have out,
I'm acting like I've never seen a store this size,

Everybody,
Everybody,
Let's get our money,
Act funny,
Get to Target,
Get to Target,
Get to Target,

Let's go to Target (ha!),
Let's to go Target today,
Let's go to Target (ha!),
Let's go to Target today,
Let's go to Target (ha!),
Let's to go Target today,
Let's go to Target (ha!),
Let's go to Target today,
Yeah!

Have some fun,
With your college fund,
From DVDs,
To old CDs,
May not be good,
Just plain stupid,
But, look at the prices,
I must do it,
Get lava lamps, get some stew mix,
While old 90's music plays to walk you through it,
Step by step,
Check the new releases,
Inch by inch,
Until my funding ceases,
The city's best,
Selection of sweaters and fleeces,
The feeling's irresistible, I might have a problem,

Yo,
Everybody,
Everybody,
Let's get our money,
Act funny,
Get to Target,
Get to Target,
Get to Target,

Let's go to Target (ha!),
Let's to go Target today,
Let's go to Target (ha!),
Let's go to Target today,
Let's go to Target (ha!),
Let's to go Target today,
Let's go to Target (ha!),
Let's go to Target today,
Yeah!

Oh, box sets, sports nets, and more debts, I bet,
(Come on, y'all!),
Salad dressing and cookies and cream,
(Let's spend!),

Woo hoo!
(Uh huh, let's get--),
Woo hoo!
(--and beer),
Woo hoo!
(Uh huh, baskets--),
Woo hoo!
(--my ears),
Woo hoo!
(Uh huh, bracelets--),
Woo hoo!
(--my peers),
Oh, oh, oh,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,

Got some flowers for my door,
An action figure, Banks' Hunger for More,
Just lose my mind, and track of time,
Cart's so full, it's starting to unwind,
Just camping supplies and more Sunny D,
I'm going to have a hard time fitting this in my back seat,
I wanna be happy, successful, rich,
But it's not looking likely at the rate these isles stitch,
So, I'm in trouble now, I've been infected,
Let's get Hot Wheels, let's get fruit twists,

Yo,
Everybody,
Everybody,
Let's get our money,
Act funny,
Get to Target,
Get to Target,
Get to Target,

Let's go to Target (ha!),
Let's to go Target today,
Let's go to Target (ha!),
Let's go to Target today,
Let's go to Target (ha!),
Let's to go Target today,
Let's go to Target (ha!),
Let's go to Target today,
Yeah!

Woo hoo!
(Uh huh, let's get--),
Woo hoo!
(--and Cheers),
Woo hoo!
(Uh huh, a bit--),
Woo hoo!
(--not Sears),
Woo hoo!
(Uh huh, that's it--),
Woo hoo!
(--no fears),
Oh, oh, oh,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,

And gift cards, gift cards, and gift cards, gift cards,
And gift cards, gift cards, and gift cards, gift cards.
I still have gift cards from last Christmas that I haven't spent yet...
