The Lyrics

These words come from someone who's worked at Primark for 4 years and knows the ins and outs of it.
I put my badge upon my left side
Smoothe my black uniform
I get ready for another busy day
I'd rather just go on the dole
I have to avoid the pushchairs
I can't get the stock trolley in the lift
And there's a mess of jumpers
How much is this T-shirt
Can't you read? It says on sign over the-e-e-e-re


Bargain buy
I don't like Primark
Bargain buy
I don't like Primark
Bargain buy
I don't like Primark
I wanna shu-uu-uu-uu-uu-ut that whole place down

Chip and pin machines keep breaking down
The customer has no reciept
The skirt is soiled anyway
And you can't return briefs
And she wants to see the manager now
She untidied the boxer shorts
The supervisors are always miserable
Are your clothes ethical?
I saw Devil wears primark
I don't wan't a plastic bag
No-no-no-no

Bargain buy
I don't like Primark
Bargain buy
I don't like Primark
Bargain buy
I don't like Primark
I wanna shu-uu-uu-uu-uu-ut that whole place down

The pay is crap and they don't get holiday rates right
Noone gets paid for fifteen minutes overtime
Everyone bitches about each other behind their backs
Other's dupe you into doing their work
They have a sweatshop in Albania
Use same factories as
Debhanams, Gap and H and M
You'll get ripped off on ebay
Cedarwood State is primark
Why have I been there so long, long?
I am leaving.

Bargain buy
I don't like Primark
Bargain buy
I don't like Primark
Bargain buy
I don't like
I don't like (bargain buy)
I don't like Primark
Bargain buy
I don't like
I don't like (bargain buy)
I don't like Primark
Bargain buy
I don't like Primark
I wanna shut-uu-uu-uu-uu-ut that whole place down.

I have trouble finding a parody of a song written about a shooting funny. =/ I'm pretty sure it was meant to stay serious.
