The Lyrics

How many businesses manage to stay afloat when everyone hates them? I can think of one.....
Oy, vey, I can't see
Why this gadget won't run
Though I bought it on sale
It was new in the molding
The instructions weren't clear
English not native tongue
When I called for tech help
All I got was on-holding

I am sick of the lies
Every time I shop Fry's
When they know anything
It's a shock and surprise

The day that this
New-fangled scan-an-ner wor-orks
I'll be right back in that store
Buying crap from those jerks!

War vets may not like your use of the US National Anthem, but I do. A very patriotic 3-5s.

These should be the new lyrics to the national anthem! The old ones are so boring.

An English drinking song becomes a national anthem and then becomes a parody... sounds fitting to me.... 5/5/5
