The Lyrics

A new way to buy things by reading between the lines...
I go to grocery stores
And Wal-Mart, too
I buy my items
With my money true
The cashiers ring them up
And very quick
It makes me wonder how they pull this trick

Bar codes-they're here and they are there
Bar codes-heck, they're every-everywhere
Bar codes- on my uniforms
I see lots of bar codes everyday all in swarms

The scanners read them and are seldom right
And when they're wrong, I always start a fight
From books I read to items that I eat
I see them everywhere and they're so neat


Whatever happened to old-fashioned sales?
I guess it's old hat but yet, systems do fail
Yes, life since then has been from scan to scan
Soon, we'll have robots taking over Man!

Well done, human. My scoring subroutine scanned-in three 5's for your text file.

Good, but bar codes are passť. You need to do a song about RFID tags.
