The Lyrics

I'm surprised this idea hasn't been done before (either on here or YouTube), but one week ago was Black Friday...I hope everyone survived it. Original Song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DPVTl9K0lqc
‘Leven PM, getting pumped for the morning
Thanksgiving’s done, gotta get prepared
Ready for a brawl, time to get physical
Wanting everything, so lets get going
Line goes on and on, everybody's rushin'
The doors open, I get to shop
Throwing fisticuffs, let it begin! (begin)

Kicking for a TV
Punching for a Furby
It’s eighty percent off
Need them right away!

Black Friday, Friday
Gotta get out of my way
Had to get a brand new toaster, when I trampled some kid
Friday, Friday
It’s so cheap, why not pay!?
Everybody wants an Xbox, who needs sleeping?

Scram-bl-in’, scram-bl-in’ (MINE!)
Tram-pl-in', tram-pl-in' (BUY!)
Run, run, run, run!
Four more weeks to shop for Christmas

Everything is mine, you best stay out of my way
Checkin’ my list, full of things to buy
Run, run, there’s only one!
Hey! I saw it first!
How will I pay for this?
Kids don’t need college, right? Hey!
I’ll get this, don’t need this…
But I want it!

Shape-Up’s for my dad’s feet
New car and a big screen
Half of all mankind’s up-
Shopping ‘til dawn breaks!

Black Friday, Friday
New iPad coming my way
Everybody's lookin' for one, grabbed the last one, back up!
Oh by the way-
It’s perfectly okay
Skip Thanksgiving, must get ready for some shoppin’!

Scram-bl-in', scram-bl-in' (MINE!)
Mad rushin', mad rushin' (BUY!)
Run, run, run, run!
Four more weeks to shop for Christmas

Turkey Day was Thursday, Thursday
Today it is my day, Friday
I-I-I’m so excited
And slightly frightened
I’m gonna raid the mall today

Spend all my money away
At least I got Angry Birds!
You can’t pass up on these bargains!

J-C Penny’s, I’m back!
Some grandma gets in my way (outta my way!)
On Black Friday!? (No freakin’ way!)
No walkin’ shoppin’ (No way)
Fast pace, like a train
Push Nana to the side (Ahhh!)
(C'mon) Runnin’ by like a mad rush, don’t shop with me!
Been up since midnight, done by three
Then by five, on Black Friday, I sleep again
I think I just won, c'mon, c'mon, y'all

Black Friday, Friday
Got it all down on Friday
Swinging elbows- nothing else rings in the Christmas season
Friday, Friday
The toy aisle’s where I’ll stay
Don’t know why they say it’s hard work, it’s so easy!

Card chargin', card chargin' (BUY!)
Hard pushin' and shovin’ (NOW!)
Run, run, run, run!
It’s the real spirit of Christmas

Black Friday, Friday
Thanksgiving’s out of my way
Stores with eighty percent off price- you can’t beat them, beat them
Friday, Friday
Just get out of my way
Bigger question- how can I hide this from the kids?

Scram-bl-in', scram-bl-in' (OW!)
Trem-bl-in', trem-bl-in' (WHY!?)
Run, run, run, run
Lookin' forward to next Christmas!

Sorry I overlooked this, Abbott. I'm not up with US pop culture and didn't realize I know the OS. This is the song everybody loved to hate a year or so ago, right? And with good reason - her voice is very annoying and the lyrics ate ultrabanal. Nice match-up, you trashed it nicely with more appropriately trashy images.

I hate even normal shopping, so it sat well with me. Good subbing on the whole, but I got a bit lost following with the male spoken chorus - verse starting with J.C. Penney's. It was a non-standard verse and you seem to have followed the same pattern as the other verses, possibly, so knock off a pacing point for that. Otherwise, well done. Deserves some views and comments.

Good idea but seeing how annoying and repetitive this OS is it seems like you lost some steam towards the end

(SOTM) Dang Abbott, you're right! How has no one done this idea yet?! Regardless you did a great job on this one. Very funny. Too bad I can't stand the OS (so I refuse to ever parody it personally), but I gotta call you out on one line, "Punching for a Furby". Who in their right mind would clock someone for one of those frighteningly annoying plush demons?! I guess the point is these people aren't in their right minds. ;) Classic Abbott in this one.

(SOTM) Thank God Black Friday doesn't exist in Australia (no point in having a sale the day after Thanksgiving when there's no Thanksgiving). Great parody of a horrendously bland song, 555!

Lots of great lines in here Abbott. Loved all the different Friday rhymes, 'scramblin'/tramplin'', and remaining funny through a long song. Push them nanas.

SOTY...as a lover of sleep and a hater of waiting in line, I'm much more of a Cyber Monday shopper...and this parody explained all the reasons why I don't go out the day after Thanksgiving! :)

Almost as crazy as that can happen during the day.

(Artistry) Your "Friday" parody has the edge over Matthias' in our competition, with less repetition, lots of funny variety of gifts to buy. And I hope I never hear this OS again.

(Artistry) See above^^^^ not as miffed about the Furby line now though. Simma down past Blayde!
