lyrics

Time is just another currency, and we are working – working currently.

Your money’s been well spent, well spent indeed. Indeed,
you’ve purchased every everything you’ll need – you’ll need.
But when the clock strikes six o’ clock, it’s time to stop. The shop is shut.
It’s time to pack up all your stuff and leave – and leave.

And ding dong. Sing another song.

We’ll go shopping; we’ve got options. We’ll be wanting what you’ve got and
we’ll be needing what we’re seizing. We’ll believe in what we’re seeing.
We want what you’ve got. Give us that stuff! We’ll take it all. Yes, we will
take what you’ve got, ‘cuz we want it a lot, and we’re not gonna stop ‘til we get that stuff!

We’ll take whatever you’ve got,
because we really, really want it a lot.
We’d take whatever, ‘cuz we’re never, ever, ever gonna
get all the things that we want.

We work so hard to earn our meager pay – our pay.
We work all night and we work in the day – all day.
And when we get a full day off, we’ve got to pack a lunch and shop:
prepare to work again the next day – all day.

And time is just another currency – money –
so all of us are rich, rich, rich indeed. We need
to keep our clock a tickin’ tockin,’ keep our boss from knock, knock, knockin.
I have got to find some time for me that’s free.

And ding dong. Sing another song.

We’ll go shopping; we’ve got options. We’ll be wanting what you’ve got and
we’ll be needing what we’re seizing. We’ll believe in what we’re seeing.
We want what you’ve got. Give us that stuff! We’ll take it all. Yes, we will
take what you’ve got, ‘cuz we want it a lot, and we’re not gonna stop ‘til we get what we want.
And we’ll take what you’ve got, because that’s how we shop, and we’re not going to stop until we get that stuff!
