The Lyrics

Note: I recently seen on TV whereas K-Mart is re-consecrating the Blue-Light-Special, and none too soon for America, as this here song proves -
THE BLUE LIGHT SPECIAL (as seen on TV)

If you've ever been to K-Mart
You know you better shop right
You had better not dawdle
And be ready to fight
"Attention Shoppers!" they'll address you
And the light will guide you down
The aisles to the bargains
You're Blue Light Special bound.

Chorus:
Oh, Let the Blue Light Special shine it's light on me
Let the Blue Light Special
Shine it's ever lovin' light on me.

When the shoppers hear the bullhorn
They push their carts at the run.
They're a lookin' for the blue light
So's to save a ton.
First come is first serve,
Every man is for his self,
Or all the women and the children
They're bound to clean out every shelf.

Oh, Let the Blue Light Special shine it's light on me
Let the Blue Light Special
Shine it's ever lovin' light on me.

So if you're ever down to K-Mart
And you hear a siren ring
And you see a blue light flashing
Now buddy here's the thing
If you want to save some moolah
Throw your shopping cart in high
And just plow aside those shoppers
And Blue Light Special, do or die!

Oh, Let the Blue Light Special shine it's light on me
Let the Blue Light Special
Shine it's ever lovin' light on me.

Yonder comes Mrs. Nosey,
How in the world do I know?
I can tell by all her youngins.
And the words she swo'
Got a leaf rake on her shoulder
And blood is in her eye
She sees the Blue Light Special
And you'd better let her by.

Oh, Let the Blue Light Special shine it's light on me
Let the Blue Light Special
Shine it's ever lovin' light on me.
