The Lyrics

Being married to a woman of the female gender, I decided to write one that required getting in touch with my feminine side. I guess to ward off any rumors in an election year, the next parody will have to deal with power tools 'n' football.
When you're a wife - who needs some thrills in her life, well,
You can always shop . . . Nordstrom.
When you feel frumpy - and a little bit grumpy,
You can always shop . . . Nordstrom.

Just glide inside the sliding doors - the styles are breathtaking.
Every floor of every store is so intoxicating.
"Give me some air!"

The prices are higher there,
But you can be Ginger Rodgers without Fred Astaire,
When you're SHOPPING!
Life is so grande when you're SHOPPING!
Who needs a silly man?
NORDSTROM! - Fashion is waiting for you.

Bargains abound and evening gowns will surround you,
Like a fashion show - Nordstrom!
Run to and fro' - some little rooms you can go to,
Where you try on clothes - Nordstrom!

Just squeeze into the latest rage from Paris or Ralph Loren.
Swore you were a perfect 6, but now you're packin' more in -
So much to lose!

But nothing will stop you now.
Because this satin sensation could flatter a cow,
When you're SHOPPING!
Princess buys all the frills.
SHOPPING! - Daddy pays all the bills.
NORDSTROM! Princess feels better, and how!

*** Attention, shoppers! . . . Nordstrom's special today is 50% off on lingerie
- but only during the INSTRUMENTAL BREAK! ***

And you may find a perky clerk, who's coming to the rescue.
Eighty shoes from which to choose.
You need a gentle hand to help pry them on.

So maybe I'll see you there.
We can run up our charge cards - We're floating on air,
When we're SHOPPING! - 'Til they turn out the lights.
SHOPPING! - Family eats beans tonight.
NORDSTROM! - Nothing says, "SHOPPING!" like you.

Nordstrom . . . "Ahhhhhh, ain't this the life!"
Nordstrom . . . "So WHAT if my husband has a cow?!!"
Nordstrom . . . "Why yes, Mr. De Mille - I AM ready for my closeup now!"

Good parody! And the Nordstroms I've been in had live piano music to soothe your jangled shopping nerves.

So much better than being married to a woman of the other gender.

Thanks everybody. It's especially satisfying to find that people whose work I enjoy so much have stopped by to see what I'm up to.
