The Lyrics

This is what usually happens when the wife asks you get to something from a hardware store like Sears, in this case a garden rake. But every man I know thinks about the power tools or electronics department. But the smart men know not to use the Sear's credit card at 24% interest, but this guy isn't one of them. By the way the version titled At Sear's( with the apostrophe) was missing a few lines so this is the corrected version.
Oh let the light beat down upon my face, power tools my dream
I have driven in my truck to this place, have garden tools for weeds
To speak with seniors with their hearing aids, they have what I need
They talk of days for which they sit and wait, when all will be on sale

Talk of tongues from the non-english race, whose voice annoyed my ears
But it did not make me that irate, the signs were quite clear

Oh, Oh

Oh, Oh

Oh honey, I've been spending...Baby I've blown our savings
I've been spending, there's no savin', no savin'

Now it seems that I've found, rake to fix garden grounds
And my wife turns to say, " Don't expect for me to pay"
Dying to buy, dying to buy, power tools

Where's that salesman that sold me this rake, he's on his lunch break
Want to get me some power tools now, credit will not take
My spending spree won't end with garden hoes, power tools for me
Just as soon as my credit allows, to spend some more at Sears


Oh, it's such a lengthy drive, to this place, I'll come back some day
But Ace hardware is such a friendly place, drives' not far away

Well I'm on, well I'm on my way, yeah
When I leave, you may not see me all day, yeah

Ooh, yeah-yeah, Ooh, yeah-yeah, when I'm gone
Ooh, yeah-yeah, Ooh, yeah-yeah,say goodbye, so long
No-oh, credit, No-oh, credit, let me max you out

Let me take you there
Bankruptcy de-clared

Please forgive me for submitting this 3 times, hopefully the admin will removes the 2 copies below. This is the corrected and final version.

Speaking as a veteran of a year and a half in the trenches at that store, I can say, "Still Crazy After All That Sears." OK, I wasn't exactly sane before... But to back up your point, the reichsmarshalls, I mean managers, pushed us to do whatever it took to get the victim, I mean customer, to put his purchase on his Sears Card, much as the burger joints tell their immigrant cashiers to push for the Extra Value/Biggie size. And I still think a few people went into that stockroom and never came out...

Thank you Michael, you have no idea how hard it was to get the pacing down exactly on this song. I actually wrote down the number of syllables in each line and then had to come up with something relavent, funny, and timed correctly. BTW, as all my parodies are based in the truth, I was the guy who used that card too much and eventually did file bankruptcy in which Sears was a major factor. Funny thing was, when I was in the hearing room, atleast half of the other people filing were also listing Sears in their debts!

Zeppelin was one of those acts that seemed to specialize in story-songs, and if you're up to the challenge, those make the best parodies. Witness also: Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen, Harry Chapin, Queen, and, uh, Gordon Lightfoot. Must've been something about the Seventies. Just don't turn "Stairway to Heaven" into "7-Eleven." That's a big, big tip on this site: If an idea seems obvious, it probably seemed obvious to someone else a couple of years ago and has been done already.

Thanks Michael, I will most definately not do "Stairway to Heaven", as it's been played and parodied to death, although the one a few days ago was funny as hell. I try to parody songs that I not only like, but which have few to no entries on this site. Atleast 4 of my parodies of songs are the only ones listed at, and at the time I checked there were only 2 or 3 parodies of this song.

555, Wow, that was good, especially for that song. Very good.
Red Ant - March 05, 2005 - Report this comment
Thank you very much Carol, that one took about 3 hours to put together and was incredibly hard to pace. I'm still kinda suprised that alot of the parodies are of older songs that this has only been rated 3 times, especially since it was popular then and still gets regular airplay today, but I guess I have to give it time ( yeah wating for things to happen is probably my biggest defect, that and people bagging parodies with 111 and not leaving reasons why).

Oops, spelled Led Zeppelin wrong. My bad.

(ABC05-F) DKTOS, good read.

(ABC-F) Good parody, but the title doesn't start with an "F".
Red Ant - May 19, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanks Adagio and Guy. Didn't know the F round was for parodies with an F title. Thanks for looking though.

It's probably too late to comment, but I loved this song as a morose teen and I loved seeing it Sear-iously brought down to earth. Well done!
Red Ant - September 19, 2005 - Report this comment
Jango, it is never too late to comment, they are all appreciated. Good pun by the way and looking foward to your next parody. Oh, regarding the "A Horse With No Name" comment, thanks as well, and I make such pieces so that when awful OSs come on the radio I can sing my parody over it and laugh instead of wish I were deaf. ;-)

Honestly, I only know the jist of the song b/c I haven't heard it enough to know it well. But your votes are still there. I Sears-iously need to add more Zeppelin to my music library...
Red Ant - December 02, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanks Scrawny Johnny, I was lucky enough to get an opened but still new box set for 40$ instead of the usual 70$.

Liked the line: "Talk of tongues from the non-english race, whose voice annoyed my ears", The song kinda annoyed me though because it was the same few bars over and over again, and it took Led too long to get to the lyrics.... And you left a few important words/phrases from the original song in here that could have been changed, but it wasn't bad, and the OS's annoyingness isn't your fault.

(ABC) All things considered though, this brought a stately air to the once-king of retail.
Andria - March 01, 2009 - Report this comment
Sears is my favorite department store, and most of my bedding, small and large appliances, clothing, lawn and garden tools, and electronics have come from that store. And yes, I have a Sears Card. Great parody, and 5s.
Below Average Dave - March 12, 2009 - Report this comment
Loved the rhyming, very personal story to. The song has a lot of dead air space, seems like a Zepplin fetish to do that (Stairway to Heaven is the same way) but that's certainly not your fault.
Stuart McArthur - March 12, 2009 - Report this comment
(ABC) wow, Jack - that seems like a very tough OS to do - not hilarious, more insightfull and personal, but I'm tipping pacing was your priority here - 555
Melanie Lee - March 12, 2009 - Report this comment
Good stuff. Great beginning. I got tired of it about 3/4 way through, but "let me max you out" saved it for me. 5-5-5.

(ABC) I'm still trying to get over you submitting this three times :) Good job on a tough song
