The Lyrics

(sfx: doorbell)

Avon calling to the suburb towns
Now mom's at the door and the kids come down
Avon calling to the whole wide world
Open up the door, you boys & girls
Avon calling, just look at the box
All the pricey cosmetics have bitten the dust
Avon calling, they don't sell swings
'Cept at the door when the doorbell rings

(chorus)
The Avon lady's coming, the parent's coming in
Delivery expected, her weight is going thin
Mom's just coming, but have no fear
Cause open up the door, The Avon lady's here

Avon calling at the welcome mat zone
Sorry, kids, Mom will go it alone
Avon calling, see the box in depth
Quit watching TV and get what's left
Avon calling and I don't wanna shout
But when the doorbell rang, saw Mom running out
Avon calling, let the kids hide
except for the dog with the colorblind eyes

(repeat chorus 2x)

Now get this
Avon calling, Kids were there, too
and you know what they said, what's in the box was true
All they got is cosmetics and some Dial
The Avon lady left the house with a smile
(sfx: doorbell) Avon calling

Never felt so much like it

DKTOS well enough to rate this fairly, but that plus the fact that it's Arcade Junkie Appreciation week work in your favor. And "Avon Calling" for "London Calling" is a wonderful sub.
