The Lyrics

This song is about "Black Friday", the craziest shopping day of the year (which I try to avoid in the wee hours but ultimately get sucked into around 1 p.m.). Since Steely Dan is one of my favorite bands, I thought I'd do a parody of a song from their album Katy Lied. NOTE: Willowbrook Mall, mentioned in the lyrics, is at the interchange between Routes 46 and 23 in Wayne, New Jersey.
When Black Friday comes
I'll head right out the door
And I'll fight the raging hordes
That fill up every store
When Black Friday comes
I'll collect all the fees I'm owed
When the clock hits 12 a.m.
I'll be on the road
When Black Friday comes I'll get every good deal
A $4 blender's a steal
When Black Friday comes
I'll drive out to Willowbrook
Gonna take every coupon out
From my little black book
Gonna buy just what I please
Gonna buy new socks and shoes
Maybe I'll buy that $5 tie
And a stuffed kangaroo
When Black Friday comes
I'll also hit Short Hills
You know I will
When Black Friday comes
I'm going to dig myself a hole
Gonna chill out in it 'til
I satisfy my soul
I'll let the crazy hordes pass by me
The Archbishop's gonna sanctify me
If he doesn't come across
I'm going to let it roll
When Black Friday comes
I'm going to stake my claim
Though the crowds are insane

To quote The Miracles, "You better shop around"- 555!

There are times when a parody is so obvious that, when we all see it, we whack ourselves on the head and say, "Now why the hell didn't I see that." And then the thing almost writes itself, Amiright? So congrats for seeing it, Joe
