The Lyrics

Continuing my "the Mall" album parody. This is a flashback to Floyd being dragged around a mall by his mother when he was a young boy.
(Sound effect: Toddler moaning inaudibly about being dragged around the mall, baby cries in background)

Momma loves the discounts
Specifically on shoes
And the mall may look dull to you babe
And the food court may too
But ooooh, baby
Ooooh, it's true (that)...*
Ooooh babe

...*If you should go shopping
(Be)'Ware the high price of modern life
Dragging 'long side you those large shopping bags
Filled with a load of bargains
Don't be surprised when a bounce in your check
Appears at your defeat (or: on your receipt)
You fall out of your breath and out of your mind
With your dough splurging ahead of you
As you pay the high price...
by the way, can someone help me? I need to know how to list all my "the Mall" parodies, when theyre done, in order on one page, with links to them, so all the songs can be viewed in order, as on the "Deck the Walls" album parody. Someone help? Thanks...(im kinda new at this whole full album parody thing...)

I would have stayed with the "receipt" line instead of "defeat". Good job thus far. Here is how to add an album parody: www.inthe00s.com/index.php/topic,10555.0.html (if you want further advice from parody writers, become a member and start a thread at the message board. We will be glad to help!)
