The Lyrics

NOT based on a true story, because a) I don't watch enough TV to see these kinda ads, b) I don't stay up that late, and c) the only time I shop is for Transformers, and maybe the new Tony Hawk's game.
I was watchin' TV
When I spat coffee all over the screen
Such a waste of cappucino'
But you should've seen what I had just seen!
"Better not be late
Or you'll miss out on our giant sale!
It's on today
Better whiz down here like a spring gale"

I think they called it 'Price-Drop Sunday'
It used to be Friday
'Cause that's my pay-day
I'd spend my cash on that day
But now I'll switch to Price-Drop Sunday

Have to ride my ten-speed bike
'Cause the store opens at nine
Normally in bed at this time
But I just couldn't sleep last night
So I watched the TV
And you should've seen the crap that was on!
Then at six-thirty
This new ad drops like an H-bomb

I'll have to go to Price-Drop Sunday
I don't know why, 'kay?
That ad just forced me
Got nothing on*, anyway
Might as well go to Price-Drop Sunday

What should I buy?
Seems that ev'rything is a bargain price
I can't choose
Somehow it matters
Which type of DVD that I buy
They are all cool
The ad said in that awesome voice
"It's all half-price, clothes for girls and boys"
Cash, gets spent so fast
When you've some to spare

I can't resist the Price-Drop Sunday
Spent all of my money
Ads do that to me
Why did I buy a toupee?
I blame it all on Price-Drop Sunday
Tomorrow is Monday
And I shopped too late
Guess that'll be a manic Monday
*Got nothing planned, that is. Thought I'd clear that up.

"Better whiz down here like a spring gale" was kinda weird... but the line "Why did I buy a toupee?" made up for it. Cute parody Conqueror.

555 Sir . . . but this subject just does NOT seem like you!!??! You're more the "Panty-Drop" Sunday type . . .

(Artistry) The rhymes in choruses of "ee" sounds against "ay" sounds was my only objection.

(art) ha, I too was going to pick on you about the "Better whiz down here like a spring gale" line, but Matty beat me to it - doesn't matter though, the humour of the rest mad up for it - 555

(Artistry) Yeah, the "spring gale" line kinda sucked...(;-)), but the rest was pretty darn fun. Not one of your greatest, but sweet and funny. 555

(Artistry) The idea was brilliant, but TCOP I don't think your heart was into this, I know you can do better than this on the rhyme scheme. I've seen it first hand. . .I won't get terribly overbearing, but I really like most of your ideas, and this one I think could have been better. My biggest rhyme issues, were in the chrouses. You established a 'day' rhyme scheme in the first chorus and used different variations that ended with day, no problem with that in particular, but sing that and then do the other chrouses, it's okay to change the rhyme, but you actually didn't rhyme the other choruses, which broke the consistency. Also "on" doesn't work with "bomb". . .(originally wear and there) Like I said, your heart just wasn't into this one. I liked how you worked in cappucino though
