The Lyrics

I remember when I used to buy my favourite lollies.
The bag was full and bursting at the side.
There was always too much for me.
So delicious and yum-yummy.
That was when you got what you paid for.

Now these days I buy a measured container.
Less produce and more blank space inside.
Contents never seem to satisfy me.
Chemicals hate my poor tummy.
The quality is the presentation of the package.

But you don’t have to rip me off.
You take too much from the hip pocket.
I wish I could call the Hoff.
Give your derriere a Spacely’s Sprocket.
No, you don’t have to stoop so low.
Used to be decent but now you can’t stop it.
You’re somebody that I used to know.
Now you’re just somebody watching profits grow.

Now you’re just somebody watching profits grow
Now you’re just somebody watching profits grow

Every day I think of how we screw them over.
Sell them anything we tell them they should have.
Increase material re-cycling.
Gauge their eyes through price hiking.
Thank goodness the environment is making healthy profits.

But you don’t have to rip us off.
You take too much from the hip pocket.
I wish we could call the Hoff.
Give your derriere a Spacely’s Sprocket.
No, you don’t have to stoop so low.
Used to be decent but now you can’t stop it.
You’re somebody that we used to know.
Now you’re just somebody watching profits grow.

Somebody
(Watching profits grow)
Somebody
(Now you’re just somebody watching profits grow).

Watching profits grow
(that I used to know)
(watching profits grow)
Somebody
