The Lyrics

Friday night and you're low on dough
Snack machine seems the way to go
You wanna eat a Snickers, somethin' that is cheap
But all your change it keeps
Anyone would rant and rave
Money is so hard to save
Now it won't take your dollar
Spits it out again
No, you're not gonna win
You're gonna make it spin

It is the Snack Machine
Seems to be always on the fritz
Snack machine--you pushed chips and got Ritz Bitz, oh yeah
It won't work, that's no jive
You punch and pull for dear life, oooooh
Yell and scream til you're green
Kick it, the snack machine

Then it starts spittin quarters out
Feels like you're in Vegas now
Oh divine retribution! Payback is so sweet
Now you'll have lots to eat
What a surprising treat!

Cause it's the Snack Machine
Always seems to be on the fritz
Snack Machine, you pushed "chips" and got Ritz Bitz, oh yeah
You made it work, that's no jive
Now that damn thing is alive, oooh
Yell and scream til you're green
Kick it, the snack machine

It sounds like a song you could dedicate to Homer Simpson. It was great!!!!!!!

Not half bad--paced and rhymed well, topic is well chosen considering what a lot of people go through trying to buy snacks...

Well Ingeborg, I was wrong, you have commented in the past, and this is one you commented on; I see you're the Abba fan. Thanks for your comments.

A very humorous story apparently submitted before readers got in the habit of leaving comments.
