The Lyrics

This is what working in retail did to my imagination. Fortunately, I found a far, far better job before they could give me the gate.
I'm giving you the gate, I am!
Giving you the gate, I am, I am!
I hired someone from another big store!
She works harder than you did before!
And she moves so much inventory! ('ventory!)
With you, our profit margin was a sham! (A sham!)
It's the gate I'm giving you, buddy!
Giving you the gate, I am!

Second clerk, you're out of work!

I'm giving you the gate, I am!
Giving you the gate, I am, I am!
I hired someone from another big store!
She works harder than you did before!
And she moves so much inventory! ('ventory!)
With you, our profit margin was a sham! (A sham!)
It's the gate I'm giving you, buddy!
Giving you the gate, I am!

(guitar break)

I'm giving you the gate, I am!
Giving you the gate, I am, I am!
I hired someone from another big store!
She works harder than you did before!
And she moves so much inventory! ('ventory!)
With you, our profit margin was a sham! (A sham!)
It's the gate I'm giving you, buddy!
Giving you the gate, I am!

F! I! R! E! D!
You're fired! (You're fired!)
You're fired! (You're fired!)
Giving you the gate, I am, I am!
Giving you the gate, I am!

Yeah!
Robert Wuhl was right in "Bull Durham": Sears sucks!
