Black Friday: The Song

Filed under: Holidays, Amazing Parents, Funny Stuff



"When you have shopping on the brain, it helps to have a song in your heart."

So says Lou Carlozo, award-winning songwriter and columnist at our sister site, WalletPop. In his latest number, "Black Friday," he kicks off the 2009 shopping season with such lyrics as: "Tell me who needs XBox or the Nintendo Wii?
What we need is a video game called Shopping Spree. Jockey for your parking space, set debit cards on stun. Fight the mobs with martial arts, now don't that sound like fun?"

Here are the complete lyrics so you can have a family sing-along.


When the turkey's all done getting stuffed, then it's your turn
Twenty shopping bags you'll try to drag while your cash burns
You'll line up at midnight, stay awake the whole night through:
Going, going, Bakugan!!! No zhu zhu pets for you...

When Black Friday's done
Maybe you can get away
You're gonna need a vacation
From your happy holiday
Who gets to do the dirty work
So the kids can play?
There's no other way...

Tell me who needs XBox or the Nintendo Wii?
What we need is a video game called Shopping Spree
Jockey for your parking space, set debit cards on stun
Fight the mobs with martial arts, now don't that sound like fun?

When Black Friday's gone
Where's your happy Saturday?
You're gonna need a second job
With those bills to pay
So max out your credit cards
Sell your kids on eBay
What do you say?

Peace on Earth ... with Death Star Legos in every aisle
Goodwill toward men ... and robot dogs with programmed smiles
Today it's the perfect gift, tomorrow perfect trash
Oh well, if all else fails, there's always cold hard cash
There's always cold hard cash
There's always cold hard cash

When Black Friday's done
Maybe you can get away
You're gonna need a second job
With those bills to pay
Who gets to do the dirty work
So the kids can play?
What do you say?
