The Lyrics

You buy new clothes, and DVDs.
Mall sales fill you with glee.
Your head pounds.
You lose your mind.
When you see brands,
You haven't tried.

You like to think that you've held on to your soul, oh yeah

You better face the facts, the Devil owns Rave and Clares

You know your gonna have to face it
You're addicted to stuff

Might as well face it you're addicted to stuff
Might as well face it you're addicted to stuff
Might as well face it you're addicted to stuff
Might as well face it you're addicted to stuff

You shop so much,
Store owners thrill.
From shoes and pens,
To power drills.
You break your stuff,
To shop again,
Till the shops close,
But not till then.

You've used your charge account so darn many times, oh yeah

You've worn the logo and the words right off of the card

You know your gonna have to face it
You're addicted to stuff

Might as well face it you're addicted to stuff
Might as well face it you're addicted to stuff
Might as well face it you're addicted to stuff
Might as well face it you're addicted to stuff

Hey impostor, get off my turf! Amanda, ignore the anal retentive above, we all make mistakes. This was a very good parody...545

As George Carlin would say, "Where do you put your stuff?"

Becuase I thought that was the decade it was in. It's not a huge deal really.

nice work, Amanda - 555

No, Fake, I wasn't. I probably wouldn't have got it right if I was, anyway.
Stuart McArthur - February 21, 2005 - Report this comment
er, why did you NEED to know it, Fake?

did you suspect that there was another 'devious' reason?
PuarToThaMax - February 22, 2005 - Report this comment
Great pacing, combined with funny lyrics! It's all true, every-day consumption is the drug! Blow all that decade-crap, at least now you know it's an eighties song.
Stuart McArthur - February 22, 2005 - Report this comment
er, so you meant to say "it's NOT okay Amanda", Fake?

instead of saying the exact opposite

hmm, you're confusing me way more than Amanda did

Hey Fake, lighten up. The only reason we have decades on Amiright (I assume) is to make the parodies easier to catalogue and find. All Amanda's mistake means is that her parody won't be found in the 80's section, should someone go looking for it. It doesn't stop this from being a very good parody. Well done Amanda 555

That's right Joe - no reason for them to be deleted - so the only explanation I can think of is that you asked for them to be deleted - maybe you changed your mind about your line of reproach :-)

Don't respond to decade whiners. Just report their comments as inappropriate and they will be deleted.
Amanda Lockie - February 22, 2005 - Report this comment
Look, everyone. It's not a big deal, OK? It's in the wrong section and I'm sorry (If there is a way to change it, I'd appreciate knowing, though).
Joe Critic - February 23, 2005 - Report this comment
HEY! WHO THE HELL DELETED MY COMMENTS?!?!?! I'M REALLY TICKED OFF RIGHT NOW! I swear, I did NOT say anything bad in them. As stephaine on full house would say, "HOW RUDE!" Could somebody please tell me why my comments are gone?
Joe Critic - February 23, 2005 - Report this comment
In one of my comments (which rudely got deleted >:( ) I had said that I voted 5.5.5 on this; please change my vote to 4.5.5.; a few lines were missing.

344 for you, yeah alot of the original was missing, but mostly funny and all around good.
