The Lyrics

Floyd and his faithful begin to terrorize the mall in an attempt to take it over...
(Floyd: Spoken)
Oooh, we're gonna breach 'em now!
Oooh, and this, just FYI:
Goodbye, mall world - your ours now,
Dontcha cry!

(Floyd: Inwardly)
Searching for a bargain, here inside my mall
Taking back this place, for fun!
In perfect domination - here inside my mall!
Stating all my terms, for fun!

(Spoken: We're taking you over, and
going to convene outside Waldens' book store,
where we're going to be...)

Taking - over the food court
Taking - we'll clean up the bathrooms!
Taking - we'll govern you turds!
Taking - back our Hot Topic
Taking - we'll shill out our money!
Taking - we'll smash in shop windows, and litter the floors!
Taking - this final solution will get out mall back!
Taking - we're stating our terms!
Taking - we'll turn on the TVs and the radios
Taking - back the stores, and the aisles. and the Spencer's too
Taking - we're stating our terms

Would you like to see -
Our cultue own this mall?
At all?
All ya have to do is hear out - our terms
Would you like to send these
Frantic shoppers - home again?
My friend?
All ya have to do is follow my terms

(Floyd: shouted in a freny)
Now our terms will go as follows:
Prices at any and all entertainment specialty stores
will be reduced drastically to meet our meager
allowances and earnings. All peoples over the age
of 39 will be banned with no question. In addition,
we will all be...)

[Sound is drowned out as the hoard of youth begin chanting
louder and louder:]

(Crowd):
Bargains! Bargains!
Bargains! Bargains!
Bargains! Bargains!
Bargains! Bargains!
This one was difficult. The lack of rhyme and meter in the "Waiting..." part made this so. That being said, please try to read this as well as you can, despite it's somewhat disjointed flow. Thank you.

I've read your mall songs, and they're real funny! Great concept, although I'm not sure how the story goes. 555

One pacing hiccup that I could see, just skimming it. Great integration of the OS into the parody idea. Looking forward to "Stop/The Trial" (let's see...Floyd gets arrested, right? ;))
