The Lyrics

Just thought of this. Takes place in a supermarket
Hey, you know that I'm your new butcher
Why do you buy so many meats
Oh, here you come again
A customer who repeats

You buy the same thing
Can't you see
You buy everything in the whole entire store

Every time you go away
You take a lot of meat with you
Every time you go away
You take a lot of meat with you

Go away from me, yeah
You're the one I don't want to see
I can see your big cart move
I'll duck and hope you don't see me

You can't go on buyin' the same thing
Just can't you see
You've got everything from the whole entire store

Every time you go away
You take a lot of meat with you
Every time you go away
You take a lot of meat with you

You can't go in supermarkets, no
You buy everything in sight
And crush every cart in the whole entire store

When you're here it goes awry
You buy a lot of stuff so true
When you're here it goes awry
There's nothing left to buy it's true

Every time you leave this place
You take a lot of food with you
Every time you leave this place
You take a lot of food with you

Oh why don't you go away
And never come back here again
Oh why don't you go away
And never come back here again

A very "meaty" subject to sell to the vegans!!! As for me, I'll take the 55.5 ounce Porterhouse!!

I'd have a real beef with that customer! ;)

Just had to do a refresher with this song on YouTube so I could get the rhythm right. Nice job! And I think a video with your lyrics and some dancing butchers wielding cleavers would be a lot more entertaining than Mr. Young's video. I'll front you 5.55 toward the video.

Thanks Fiddlegirl and Warren (good idea!).

Oddly enough, your title scans perfectly to "I Only Want To Be With You". Follow-up/spinoff? - TT
Phil Nelson - February 15, 2010 - Report this comment
Nah, I only titled it that because otherwise it'd still be "Every Time You Go Away." Thanks TT.
