The Lyrics

You spend enough time behind a cash register at a store in the week before Christmas, and ideas get into your head.
Ah, look at all the cheapskate people!
Ah, look at all the cheapskate people!

Eleanor Cheaply
shops at the store with the sales and the rebates on stuff.
Brain's made of fluff.
Shops at the window
fist full of coupons that give her twenty percent off.
Cashiers scoff.

All the cheapskate people.
Where do they all come from?
All the cheapskate people.
Each one is such a bum!

Father McChintzy
writing a check, shows a card so sales tax won't come near.
That seems so queer.
Look at him LURKING
licking his chops at the items on clearance in there.
What does he care?

All the cheapskate people.
Where do they all come from?
All the cheapskate people.
Each one is such a bum!

Ah, look at all the cheapskate people!
Ah, look at all the cheapskate people!

Eleanor Cheaply
died in the store and was buried in coffin so cheap.
Sowed, so she reaps.
Father McChintzy
wiping his eyes as his coupon expires, the knave.
No more he'll save.

All the cheapskate people.
(Ah, look at all the cheapskate people!)
Where do they all come from?
All the cheapskate people.
(Ah, look at all the cheapskate people!)
Each one is such a bum!

The only one here that is worth something so cheap is you Mike , I hate your guts , you are truly a coward , you don't even want to respond? Sissy la-la.

Hey! There is nothing wrong with being a bargain shopper, Mr. Pacholek! I, of course, never let high prices keep me from pouting until some poor schmoe buys me what I want...but if I can snag him a sale, I'm all about it. You see...if things are on sale...I just get more things with the money he saved...; )

Arwen: I see, you want 5th Avenue quality at 14th Street prices. That's it, we are SO over! Again! (Yeah, that'll last.) Chris H.: In the immortal words of Margaret Houlihan, my guts are not here for you to love. Learn how to use commas, little boy. Unless, of course, like your hero, Rush Limbaugh, you traded your punctuational prowess for drugs.

Whatever man , your words don't phase me , I just wanted to know why you didn't comment on my last song , and you didn't post , I say the proof is in the pudding.
Arwen - December 27, 2005 - Report this comment
Wait a second...is there pudding? I didn't get any.
Chris H. - December 28, 2005 - Report this comment
Arwen , your alright with me.
Arwen - December 29, 2005 - Report this comment
Oh, Chris. I'm alright with EVERYONE...it's kind of a rule around here. But I'm still VERY upset about your spacing/comma problems. Didn't we talk about this about 38 years ago on a Merry and Pippin gem? *sigh*

And Mr. Pacholek...PLEASE...I happen to know the only circumstance that will lead to my losing your devotion...and Mrs. Michael Douglas is, according to my sources, still happily married. Now go buy me something fabulous...; )

Arwen , I know your alright with everyone , but these days it hard to find a very uncontroversial person. Unfortunately you find alot of those on this site , especially the real immature kind.
