The Lyrics

Yeah it's sad...once again another chain has closed its doors for good. This parody explains the feelings of a loyal Ames customer.
I could hardly believe it
I saw it in the paper
I had to come and see it for myself
It said you were closing
The court took all your money
From the looks on the shoppers, I see it's true
So tell me the story now, tell me 'bout the sales you're plannin'
Just tell me one thing before I cry

Tell me how am I supposed to shop without Ames?
Now that I been shoppin' it so long
How am I supposed to shop without Ames?
How am I supposed to shop again
The store that I've been shoppin' for no more

I didn't come here to relax
Didn't come here for my health
It's just a store I know is coming to an end
And how can I blame it
When i shopped my life in wealth
The hope that one day I could visit it again
And i don't wanna know the price I'm gonna pay for half off
When the news is now more than I can take

Repeat Chorus

And I don't wanna face the price I'm gonna pay for half off
Now that this store has to close

Repeat Chorus
