In the Land of Buy and Sell
The cash till rings its nonstop bell.
The sun shines from fluorescent lights.
There’s not a tree or bird in sight.
Sexy bras, new bags or shoes;
Designer clothes - seductive hues;
Things to right your breaking heart
And give your life a big kick-start.
Retail therapy day and night
Will help to make you feel all right.
So treat yourself - run up a bill
And give your inner self a thrill.
Then colour hair, drop down a size
And look around at all those guys - - - -??????
No! Please don’t look - you have a break!
The last one was your big mistake!
