The Lyrics

According to many research studies, nearly half of established small businesses in the U.S. fail after their first year. There are many reasons why...
If you are going to go in big business, you must pay a price
I have no Midas touch
But I couldn't let go
It was a business I believed in

So think of this place, if you can
A striptease bar combo bakery stand!
I had not a doubt
That we would be rolling in money

My accountant called me
And said we didn't have long
He put it to me plainly
"It's time to move along" (move along...)

Lost our lease, yes, we lost so much
Our accounts' run aground, our credits in clutch
Our stuff's on the street
The other shopkeepers are taunting

I was so surprised, can you believe it now?
Had a good start, then it went to the can
Can't figure it out
Who could resist pasties and pastry?

You know the market screwed me
I was being strung along
It started so easy
Where did it all go wrong? (all go wrong?)

Lost our lease, we are so in dutch
Dug a hole in the ground, dropped the cash in the hutch
This venue was so sweet
Now the IRS man is my haunter

Please don't give me pity
This problem won't last too long
I'm starting a new deli
Crossed with a hair salon (hair salon...)

Lost our lease, this is a smutch
Our business was bound for the Forbes list and such
But I admit I got beat
I'll just continue my life undaunted

But we lost our lease, lost our lease
Lost our lease, lost our lease...

These business ideas you're proposing are just so terrible. Although I kinda would like to have a nice freshly baked donut while I'm getting a lap dance so maybe you're onto something there. Well done my fellow "Lost" writer.

would have been much funnier if you use combo candy store and strip club. ladies sometimes use lollipops as props, if you know what mean

"Who could resist pasties and pastry?" truly a question for the ages 5's

(Artistry) You had some lines in this that really made me LOL. "A striptease bar comb bakery stand" and "Who could resist pasties and pastry?" were among my favorites. I wish you would've come up with names for those businesses, that would've been really funny. Although "Pasties and Pastry" would be a pretty good name. Nice work all around.

Very nicely done, made me chortle.

(Artistry) There were some terms I didn't recognise (like lease, "in clutch" and "in the dutch") but not knowing fancy business words didn't stop me from enjoying Weird Al's "Mission Statement" and it won't stop me here! Great job on this one, 555

I really love the ideas for companies you put in here. I think this spoof would be a little bit better if it was a guy just pitching different combo business ideas that just get more and more ridiculous. The bakery/strip club and deli/salon ideas were really funny, but honestly, I think everything else was just kinda filler. Not bad, but could be a bit funnier.
