The Lyrics

Misty Mate is the personal portable air cooler that you pump up after filling it with water. I demonstrate this product at the Costco store in Summerlin (a part of Las Vegas) for extra cash on the weekends
[Buying, Buying, Buying Misty Mate]
[Buying, Buying, Buying Misty Mate]

At Costco in Las Vegas
They are offering something that is neat
'Cause summer's here and the time is right
For buying Misty Mate
They're buying in Summerlin(Buying Misty Mate)
Down in Henderson now (Buying Misty Mate)
Martin Luther King (Buying Misty Mate)

Chorus
All you need is water, tap water (tap, tap water)
And there'll be cooling everywhere (everywhere)
There'll be filling, pumping, and water squirting
From using Misty Mate
It doesn't matter where you are
Even sitting in your car
C'mon everyone, grab a pack
Everywhere in Las Vegas
And they'll be using
Using Misty Mate

This innovation is causing a sensation
A way to keep yourself cool
There'll be filling, pumping, and water squirting
And using Misty Mate
Death Valley and Grand Canyon (Buying Misty Mate)
Meadows Mall and Downtown now (Buying Misty Mate)
Can't forget Boulder City (Buying Misty Mate)

[chorus]
All you need is water, tap water (tap, tap water)
And there'll be cooling everywhere (everywhere)
There'll be filling, pumping, and water squirting
From using Misty Mate
It doesn't matter where you are
Even sitting in your car
C'mon everyone, grab a pack
Everywhere in Las Vegas
And they'll be using
Using Misty Mate

This innovation is causing a sensation
A way to keep yourself cool
There'll be filling, pumping, and water squirting
From using Misty Mate
Death Valley and Grand Canyon (Buying Misty Mate)
Meadows Mall and Downtown now (Buying Misty Mate)
Down on the Strip every day
Using Misty Mate

At Costco in Las Vegas
They are offering something that is neat
'Cause summer's here and the time is right
For buying Misty Mate
They're buying in Summerlin(Buying Misty Mate)
Down in Henderson now (Buying Misty Mate)
Martin Luther King (Buying Misty Mate)

[chorus]
All you need is water, tap water (tap, tap water)
And there'll be cooling everywhere (everywhere)
There'll be filling, pumping, and water squirting
From using Misty Mate
It doesn't matter where you are
Even sitting in your car
C'mon everyone, grab a pack
Everywhere in Las Vegas
And they'll be using
Using Misty Mate

Down on the Strip every day
Using Misty Mate
Big long line, the buffet
Using Misty Mate
Across the ocean blue, [Hawaii too]
Using Misty Mate
Yeah all round Vegas, boys and girls
Using Misty Mate
