The Lyrics

I walked along the aisles back in eighty-two.
Looking at the titles and wondering what to view.
When I was young the VCR was so brand new.

Oh-a-oh.

I had good credit and got a membership for free.
I could rent so many titles for just a small fee.
Watching all the movies I've always wanted to see.

Oh-a oh.

Today's children.
Oh-a oh.

What can you tell them?

Netflix killed the video store.
Netflix killed the video store.

Netflix came with its online cart.
Oh-a-a-a oh.

Peering through windows of an abandoned Blockbuster.
They tried to make it but they could just not muster.
Brick and mortar rental stores had lost all their luster.

Oh-a oh.

Rented the first one.

Oh-a oh.

Took back the last one.

Netflix killed the video store.
Netflix killed the video store.

No more getting in your car because your mailbox is not too far.

Oh-a-aho oh.
Oh-a-aho oh.

Netflix killed the video store.
Netflix killed the video store.

No more getting in your car because your mailbox is not too far.
Netflix came with its online cart.

Can't go to the video store.
Can't go to the video store.
Netflix killed the video store.
Netflix killed the video store.
Netflix killed the video store.
Netflix killed the video store.

Netflix killed the video store. (Can't go to the video store.)

Redbox, online movies, as well as cable On-Demand also contributed to the demise of the video stores which resorted to selling non-video crap like: food, books, movie memorabilia, etc- especially Blockbutcher!!!

True, but Netflix recently revealed itself to be just another corporate clusterf**k that cares little about its customers. Anyway, good parody.

They also got these DVD machines that you can rent a DVD right on the street corner now anymore. Great parody, I miss the video stores too! 555! :-)
