The Lyrics

8th In my album parody of "Achtung Baby"
Everybody knows the postman delivers at noon.
Get your mail then, and take it to your room.
You've ordered stuff on-line, or maybe on the can.
You've been trying to stop your life going bland. (yeah..)

Don't worry, it's coming down.
just wait for the mail to hit the ground.

It's alright, it's alright, it's alright.
This is another red letter day.
It's alright, it's alright, it's alright.
This is another red letter day, oh.

Waiting for your package, is sometimes a pain.
the excitement that you get, you can't explain.
the microwave meals, the credit card bills.
If you want to buy a bride, better learn Cantonese!
Cantonese, boy!

boxes piled, by your side.
buy from ebay, just don't go wild.

It's alright, it's alright, it's alright.
This is another red letter day. ahhhhh...
It's alright, it's alright, it's alright.
This is another red letter day, yeah, oh, ah.

Buy today! Get it tonight! Oh...

Pay up on time, don't face no fee.
Get a real leather Babe Ruth glove.
what you buy there?
Do you need that incense?
Your head is now reeling.

It's alright, it's alright, it's alright.
This is another red letter day.
It's alright, it's alright, it's alright.
This is another red letter day.

Move you, specials move you.
Move, specials, it's movin' you.
Does it move you?
Come get with it...
Buy today! Get it tonight! Oh...

I gave it 4-4-4. Pacing was off in some places, but overall it was pretty good. :-) (I know parodying a whole album must be tough)

I too gave it straight 4s. A noble effort sir.
