This song is not in a battle


Wrote it after  watching a "Sorbees(tm)" commercial. A mildly new form for  me, with no singing and highly electronic instrumentation.

Lyrics:
Hurry up It's only avaialable for one week
One time only one day sale
One extraordinary opportunityYou'll find no better deal
In all the world Not even in yourselfYou'll see that sometimes
Even the poorest have enough wealth
You'll find a home You'll find a family
You'll find a dog  You'll find a kid
You'll find them All for one small fee
Just a few quid

Buy a ticket on an airplane
And head up to the  store
The American Superstore
You can buy More more

You can pay for it with credit
plastic, or a check
Just slide it through
And accrue some debt

Pay it tommorow!
Pay it next week!
Pay it any  time but now!
Just  put it in the shopping bag,
and it's yours to keep

Buy an  Ipod Buy a car Buy useless Buy in bulk
Buy wasteful Buy ugly Buy sinless Buy soap
Buy handbags Buy  shoes
Buy something you can't use
Buy french fries Buy milk
Buy hot dogs Buy Coke
Buy computers Buy Windows
Buy software Buy a Mac
Buy Britney Buy Miley
Buy Justin Buy Shaq
Buy a Company Buy Stock
Buy Employees Buy Land
Buy Captial Buy Principal
Buy the Government
Buy Iraq

And you  don't want to fall behind
Wouldn't that be bad?

 awesome lyrics TOG 89 very well put together , in the world of ultra consumerism , so true.
Electronic sounds  fit the intensity ,the chorus really kicks in > I love the list , now you've got my head spinning , mmmm buy lipstick buy shoes , buy time ,buy a les paul >>>>> most stimulating song , I think.
Reminded of the old john lennon song God.
I don't believe in magic , elvis , beatles , bible and etc
Thankyou for posting this ,and I like the sarcasm or irony in your voice .
Considering global market meltdown, today very appropriate.

Pretty weird, but I like the message.
And that electronic beat it's really catchy.
Not exactly my style, but is quite good, dude.
