The Lyrics

You who live in America's Pacific Northwest will immediately recognize the name "Fred Meyer's". For the rest of you, Fred's is sort of a junior version of a Walmart Superstore.
Packed up the car this evening,
We've got a family getaway
The kids are all excited -
Who knows just what we could find today.

On our way to Fred Meyer's.
Yeah, Freddy Meyer's has shelf after shelf ,
Filled with goodies.
You just go in and help yourself.

You'll shop for hours.
You can browse the aisles 'til after dark.
We shop Fred Meyer's -
Even though you can't find a place to park.

Neon sign's getting nearer.
Bargains galore are yours 'round this place.
Max out my credit cards in there.
I want anything but a handicapped space!

Man, I can't park it nowhere,
Just drivin' all around like this.
There's someone exiting somewhere.
Honey, I just might park in his.

You can't shop Fred Meyer's -
You can't shop Fred Meyer's until you park.
We're driving farther.
You can't find a place when it's after dark.

We drive around, going nowhere,
With two kids in the back who've gotta pee.
So I just park in the traffic -
They're honkin' - and flippin' me.

We're finally in Fred Meyer's.
In seven minutes they close tonight.
And you might guess that I'm hungry,
Just watch me-
I'm grabbing everything in sight.

I'm stocking up on chicken,
Boxes of frozen TV dinners piled so high.
We made it through the checkout -
Fred's even parked our car nearby.

We just love Fred Meyer's,
Even when they're kicking us out in the dark.
We'll shop Fred Meyer's,
Even if we can't find a place to park.

If itīs bad for their sells, itīs a management problem. Maybe you should talk to the Boss about it. ;-)

There's never a bad time to poke fun at a supermarket. 4-4-4

I see we're having turkey early this Thanksgiving week.

Meaning what, Michael?

Meaning I didn't like the parody, and I thought it was a "turkey." At least I didn't say "Stuff it." Maybe I should stop hitting the sauce.

Thank you for clarifying your comment, Michael.To you turkey's a bad thing. See, I like turkey, so I thought you were paying me a compliment. My bad.
