The Lyrics

Yes, I was thinking of Carrie Bradshaw when I wrote this.
Another payday's over
And I'm shocked sober
My bank balance is negative two-oo-oo
All I want is to go shopping
Nothing has ever stopped me
'Cause I've got a big obsession with those special shoes

Know what to get me?
Let me...
Sink in that sinful feeling that says my credit is about to blow
So?
Don't expect me to behave rationally
Or pass up outlet malls
Where I could buy a pair for less than retail price
There's online buying
I could have them mailed to me in Saskatoon
I've got such a nasty habit
I see a pair, I grab it
My creditors are screwed
Because when I get in the mood
I hunt the city
For footwear that's pretty
My Mah-nolo Blahnik shoes

I borrow from my relations
For my preoccupation
My ship just sank
My credit score's rank
The bank could take over
Welcome to my foreclosure
All for Mah-nolo Blahnik shoes

Oops, I did it again, the second line should read "And I'm shocked cold sober." D'oh!

Marvellous use of the OS - this was one of my favourite Queen songs to play when I was learning the guitar, but could never quite sing it properly. Never heard of "Manolo Blahnik Shoes", but I guess they're not Walmart cheapest, right?

Thanks, Phil - it's one of my favorite songs to sing. I've always wanted to do so in a sequined dress from atop a grand piano, but that's my little fantasy. ;) Manolo Blahniks cost about $500 a pair, or so I've heard. I'm more a Payless kind of gal, myself.

Guess you'll be writing more parodies til Payday! HA! Keep up the funny work!

From working at a certain department store -- which shall remain shameless -- I've discovered that it's easier to please a woman with a $50 pair of shoes than it is to please a man with a $5,000 television set. How much to Manolos cost, around $555?

Thanks, Michael! Shocking admission: I've never tried on a pair of Manolos in my life and actually prefer to go barefoot whenever possible. But I'm still patting myself on my sunburned, peeling back (hee) for matching the concept to the song. Blahnik should send me money, if I do say so myself. :)
