The Lyrics

For loosekanen's contest
Out of the Far East comes a parent's pain
See the increased sales
From LA to the shores of Maine
At ToysRUs shelling out more dough
As Christmas grows near
Running scared through the aisles they go

Wooooo, wooooo
Pokemon to buy
Pokemon to buy
Pokemon to
Pokemon to

From playing the game comes a very sore thumb
Ash fought with Wartortle
And Team Rocket was overcome
Give Pokemon their feed
You fill them with desire
You become their bosses
Their strength gets higher and higher

Wooooo, wooooo
Pokemon to buy
Pokemon to buy
Pokemon to
Pokemon to

This guy comes up to me
Right in the middle of the Christmas rush
"Pokemon cards?" he says in a hush
And he's peeling off those trading cards
Slapping them down
Pikachu, Charmader
And I can't say their stupid names
And I can't say their stupid names
Across the bunk beds where the children sleep
On the floor underneath their busy feet
Games and figurines fill their drawers
Hoping and praying they have room for more
The Pokemon empire has grown
To fads, they know that kids are the most prone
Hypontizing America
Hypontizing America

Across the store you see a box ripped open
See all the kids and parents swoon
Stabbing each other with fountain pens
They run
Into the arms
Of the Pokemon
