The Lyrics

Livin' the city life day by day
Gotta admit it's the place I'll stay
But one thing will chew up all your time
Waitin' in line (Waitin' in line)

We go out to Eddie Bauer
The shopping's great but then it turns sour
Standing in the checkout queue 'til nine
Waitin' in line (Waitin' in line)
Waitin' in line (Makin' me whine)

I opine
The system should be refined
They oughta serve us wine
And make it a good time
Waitin' in line (Waitin' in line)
Waitin' in line (Should be maligned)

After a while you start to fear it
You get in a line, then you bronx cheer it
It'll be ninety minutes 'til we dine
Waitin' in line (Waitin' in line)
Waitin' in line (Should be a crime)

It's a grind
Standin' in all these lines
We need a redesign
Everyone decline
Waitin' in line (Waitin' in line)
Waitin' in line (Makin' me whine)
Waitin' in line (Waitin' in line)
Waitin' in line (Should be a crime)
Waitin' in line (Waitin' in line)
