The Lyrics

A mass-merchandise box store anchor parody...
[Spoken:]
Speak out!

See an empty lot on a shopping block as consumers walk on by
Makes our retail giant want to secure the land and buy
If you gave us a fair chance you'd see
That Wal-Mart brings prosperity
But you choose local merchants to pay
We've had to invest much more than this
For a prime location we wanted, don't try to resist us

[Chorus:]

Open a Wal-Mart in your city, shoppers
We’ll roll back the prices and you’ll save lots of money
Open a Wal-Mart in your city, consumers
We’ll roll back the prices and you’ll save lots of money

A Fortune 500 company isn’t afraid to say we offer more
Some can’t face that truth, I wonder why
We beat the competition but you can't see
You're too wrapped up in your Mom & Pop store

Or you choose to shop at Costco and pay
Much more than our prices- daily
With Superstores and Sam’s Clubs too
Nothing can stop us from building, you've need to

Open a Wal-Mart in your city, shoppers
We’ll roll back the prices and you’ll save lots of money
Open a Wal-Mart in your city, consumers
We’ll roll back the prices and you’ll save lots of money

Open a Wal-Mart in your city
4000 locations is not a large enough number

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Open your wallet, we'll make you love us
It's not that hard, you’ll save the most bucks

With Superstores and Sam’s Clubs too
Nothing can stop us from building, you've need to

Open a Wal-Mart in your city, shoppers
We’ll roll back the prices and you’ll save lots of money
Open a Wal-Mart in your city, consumers
We’ll roll back the prices and you’ll save lots of money

Open a Wal-Mart in your city

Open your wallet, we'll make you love us
It's not that hard, you’ll save the most bucks

[repeat and fade]

Who can say no to Wal-Mart? Even though it has more security than Fort Knox, and where I live it's the only place anyone can buy anything worth a plumb nickel. To "sum" up your parody however, it's service with a smile and low prices in every isle. :-) 555!

I like Walmart. I went there a few times, buying everything ranging from The Immaculate Collection (Madonna) to Disney Infinity figures (for my PS3).

I love Wal-Mart. We have a nice one in my town and I do all my shopping there including groceries.
