The Lyrics

I keep fearin' I'll get burned, should see my Christmas list.
If all I bought were from the malls my money'd soon be pissed.
I'll soon be shoppin', Christmas blues, I'm sorry it ain't fun,
Have quite a few friends and I'm worried about my buyin' for each one.
'
Won't be shoppin' at the mall,
Should this bother me this fall?
Buy my solitaire at pawn, 'cause I am the thrifty one.
Soakin' bigger debt, I'm watchin' cap'tol spending too
Hey don't sell me, no nothin' they'd use.
'
Up tight, I'm stressed retails so splendid my am I so down
As long as I got green I can't help throw my money round.
At least the things I bought you see, can be paid for on time,
I'll be payin' past next year, just watch that interest climb.
''
Won't be shoppin' at the mall,
Should this bother me this fall?
Buy my solitaire at pawn, 'cause I am the thrifty one.
Soakin' bigger debt, I'm watchin' cap'tol spending too,
Hey don't sell me, no nothin' they'd use.
'
Can't wait to be through, on I go, the crowds I hate to fight,
Twenty ways to buy and I'm out cussin' every night.
And my shoes they keep on bustin' as they pound the street,
So I'll just throw back and consume until my funds deplete.
'
Won't be shoppin' at the mall,
Should this bother me this fall?
Buy my solitaire at pawn, 'cause I am the thrifty one.
Soakin' bigger debt, I'm watchin' cap'tol spending too,
Hey don't sell me, no nothin' they'd use.
'
Don't sell me, hey nothin' they'd use.

A superb start for this year's round of anti-commercialism parodies, Guy....I will probably be contributing to that genre as well in the weeks ahead.

I'll buy, Guy...if it's cheap enough, that is...I've only got three 5's to spend on it today, is that going to be enough? Well, think I'll try to go back to bed now...I haven't found any parodies boring enough to put me back to sleep, but I've got to get a bit of shut-eye before that sun comes up in a few hours...maybe I'll read some of MINE that I never submitted...that oughtta do the trick...

One of our newspapers had a front page article promoting the act of being stingy, saying that it's better to give love this Christmas over gifts, as about $300 billion or so was spent last year on Christmas shopping. This fine parody leads the way in tight-ass gifts!

I'm with you.

(ABC-W) DKTOS, but if it discourages debt it's good.

Well done, Guy. Can you share the address of that pawn shop? I have to start my Christmas shopping in a week or so.
Johnny D - December 11, 2004 - Report this comment

(ABC) I only buy for one friend's family of 14, but it still takes all year to pay off te Target bill! I can relate...

Well, I guess I won't be shopping down at Darth Mall either... ;-)

(ABC W) See my above comments...agree with Jeff R about the timing of this entry - perfect for the "XMAS shopping season"...
