The Lyrics

I'm ticked and dismayed
It's ludicrous how much I spent on
That brand on TV, that was $9.68
That thing had a decent scent, but

The reason I paid
Was to feel cleaner up top
But something was wrong, when my shower was done
It was plain, in the store, I was robbed

And I guess that's why they call it shampoo
Grime on my hair, still has not been removed
Put it on my head, carefully lathered
Rinsed and repeated, it didn't matter
And I guess that's why they call it shampoo

I'd surely complain
But it's a pain, and I know
If I attempted
To call I would never
Be answered, forever on hold

Waste of dollars
2 buck shampoo works better
Bummer I had to
Get stupid shampoo
Surely its makers are jerks

And I guess that's why they call it shampoo
Lies make me mad, TV ads should tell truth
Nasty Ad Villains, tricked me by bluffing
I'm mad like Hulk but, I'm doing nothing
And I guess that's why they call it shampoo

Waste of dollars
2 buck shampoo works better
Bummer I had to
Get stupid shampoo
Surely its makers are jerks

And I guess that's why they call it shampoo
Lies make me mad, TV ads should tell truth
Nasty Ad Villains, tricked me by bluffing
I'm mad like Hulk but, I'm doing nothing
And I guess that's why they call it shampoo
