The Lyrics

Well, I'm an architecture major at UNLV and I wrote this as a commentary on how expensive our school supplies are. By the way, my miniature plastic architect scale that I wrote this about wasn't exactly $102, more like $12.50:)
I need a bigger scale,
I do, need to find a sale.
These scales cost more than my shoes,
I do hope it comes with glue.

Stores take advantage while they leave my wallet dry
But I can't see why plastic scales (ain't) free.

I don't.

I'm standing in the line,
I do hope I have some dimes.
I do pay $one-hundred-two,
I do take my scale and glue.

Stores take advantage while they leave my wallet dry
But I can't see why plastic scales (ain't) free.

I bought a bigger scale,
I do, wish I found a sale.
My scale cost more than 5 shoes,
I do wish it was brand new.

Stores take advantage while they leave my wallet dry
But I say these prices ain't right
No I can't see why plastic scales (ain't) free.
I'm broke (x4 times)

555, clever. You have some extra words in this parody, did you go by lyrics? I just read the ones the fit.

I love it, but uhm...I thought TOS was from the nineties.

What Step-chan said. To Mr Critic: TOS is from the "Bleach" CD which my re-issue copy shows a 1989 copyright. TOS was written in the 80s, though the CD may not have been released until the 90s.

Good one, 555

If it was recorded in '89 then, I suppose the parody author is okay.
