The Lyrics

I'm at . .
You need cash
Bring it I'll buy it
You need weed?
Don't wanna hear it
What I'm trying do here is run a pawn shop ( Selling necklaces )
Got what you want ( Game cartridges )
We're selling ( Old compact discs )
Stuff you need son ( Wooden dresser chests )
Buy here

I am not selling thongs
or tender loins
I am not selling bongs
and no condoms
What I'm trying to do here is run a pawn shop ( Selling tricycles )
Need to get home ( Ten-speed bicycles )
Come here ( Fashion end tables )
Sell me those clothes ( Ancient Greek bibles )

I can give it to you
Enough money
And all I'm taking
from your wrist honey
Is that Rolex for 50 bucks you'll get home
( Pawn It, Pawn It, Pawn It. . .) Yeah honey, buy it back soon

( Laptops and mouses ) Yeah ( Golden laced blouses )

Hooo gold watches
They're worth some money
Them Sony games
Like pots of honey
But I need you to sign here please
saying that it's yours
Your shtick ain't stolen
( Brea ea ea ing) Short on bills, come and see me
( Printer laser jets)
I'll buy your clock now ( More than you'd expect )

Silver, gold & diamond rings selling things for near nothing
Speakers, phones & clean linens
Flat screen color Tvs ohhhh (Buy it from me,etc.)

It's David's Pawn Shop oh yeah ( Lawn Mowers and silk vests)
Cause Our prices are tops ( Our prices are best )

Don't pay too much
When you're buying
We'll beat out K-Mart
You break, you buy it


Stuff for your home
All we sell guns now and cell phones

Parodying this song earns you much R-E-S-P-E-C-T, that is what it says to me.

Loved it. Haven't even seen the inside of a pawn shop since college days,maybe '66 or so, and never actuallly pawned anything, but I used to enjoy prowling the triple-ball houses that then lined a segment of ??? - can't remember which road -- in Arlington, VA in search of bargains on guitars and other musical gear. Biggest prize was a rare-ish steel banjo ukelele bought for $5 and for whose like I've seen e-Bay bids surpass $400. Alas, mine disappeared sometime during the summer of '69, between college and grad school. I'm betting it went the way all those boxes of later-to-be valuable baseball cards that my mom chucked out. Sigh. Oh well ... today I'm here to pawn this $555 genuine fake Rolex ... :-)

You got me shopping to the beat, Dave! OK, I need a Rolex, a diamond necklace, and a DVD player. I would also like to sell clothes I grew out of, a watch, some of my jewelry, and some of my DVD's. Sorry,I just couldn't resist that. Anyways, awesome parody you wrote. This is a great song for a commercial jingle for your pawn shop! Keep it up! Hope you can make a recording of this song someday! 555.

Snags and capsules the essence of the pawn broker business very well

I didn't log on looking for pawn, but I found here at BaDave's :) Good job!

Thanks everybody, surprised this song hasn't been hit more than it has:)

Matthias: thanks, and it's actually more challenging than it may seem.

Stan Hall: Thank very much, I only go into pawn shops myself to look for ancient video games, they seem to attract those a lot. I may need to find that place in Arlington you are talking about, wonder if they sell N64s.

LCP: You won't believe what I saw today then, 1.95 for gas at the WaWa down the street (WaWa, what kind of name for a gas chain is that--and what does it have to do with Wild Geese). Hope it continues, I haven't paid 1.95 in so long.

John Barry: Thanks

Christ Marie M: Sounds like an even trade to me, thanks, and I'm pretty sure this one will make it onto my recording list, Aretha is a fun original artist to sing after.

AFW: Thank you AFW, writing it actually made me want to run one a little.

Peregrin: Thank you very much, we also have great 'folding chairs':)
