Black Friday at the Mall

With apologies to The Cure and music lovers everywhere.

Target’s all out of TVs
Best Buy has just two or three
Walmart will be the death of me
Black Friday at the mall

I must be out of my mind
The parking lot was a bad sign
Hours in the gift-wrap line
Black Friday at the mall

Yesterday was great
Nothing to do but vegetate
Now I must confront my fate

Home Depot a socket set
For Uncle Johnny don’t forget
Dig myself deeper in debt
Black Friday at the mall

Barnes and Noble’s shelves are bare
Bed Bath & Beyond, I swear
Just sell me something, I don’t care
Black Friday at the mall

Shopping’s what I hate
Cyber Monday comes too late
So I hurry up and wait

[bridge]

I must be out of my mind
The parking lot was a bad sign
Hours in the gift-wrap line
Black Friday at the mall

Yesterday was great
Nothing to do but vegetate
Now I must confront my fate
