Leftover Crack – Supermarket Song lyrics

[Originally by Citizen Fish]

In the shops and supermarket chains
The check outs play that song again
The notes ring in, ring out the change
Laughing all the way
To the stock exchange

The music keeps us happy as we choose
The products that we can't afford to use
The tokens on the packets the percentages that drop
And the ringing and the singing from the ceiling never stops

"Buy the product and be free!
Live a life of luxury! "
And it says so on tv
Every quarter of an hour

Consuming all the facts
Makes you feel you can relax
Comes neatly wrapped in packs
With ingredients on the back

So when you're sick
From plastic snacks
You'll know precisely why

While you uphold the megastores
By/buy paying for what you cannot afford
The man who runs the shop next door
Remembers how it was before

When personality meant something
And customers would laugh with him
They'd smile or nod as they came in
And adverts didn't mean a thing!

But now the supermarket chains
Are around your neck and purse
The sell the products to the strain
Of some long-forgotten dirge

Just loud enough to wash away
The headaches from outside
Another shopping paradise
Where god is on your side

They channel mediocrity
As life's essential quality
You're buying two to get one free
It's something that you'll never need
But green and curiosity makes you consume
And lets them feed
