- a song every child already knows
BUY ME SOMETHING!
I’m just a little kid, with a mouth beneath my nose
When someone takes me shopping, this is how it goes, it says
Chorus: Buy me something, something, something!
Buy me something, something, something!
Buy me something, buy me something,
Buy me, buy me, buy me, buy me,
Buy me something, pleeeeease!!
Even if I have one, my mouth says “I need two!”
And if Mom tells me “No!” here’s what it will do, ... it says
We’re s’posed to look for presents for my family
But my mouth doesn’t care about anyone but me! It says
“One of these! Or one of those! Or that one over there!
Hurry! Buy me ANY-thing! I don’t really care, just”
My parents really hate it, they have to count to ten
They say they’ll never, ever, ever buy me things again!
I’ve really got a problem, my mouth just loves to shop!
Maybe YOU could buy me something, THAT might make
(Spoken: Wha’d’ya think? It’s worth a try!
You could prob’ly save a cute little kid from getting killed
by an angry parent! Look it’s not my fault if my mouth
has some kind of rare shopping compulsion, is it?
You could just put it on your charge card?
Then you won’t have to pay right away?)
Chorus (more manic)
I’m going crazy, I can’t stand it
Please DON’T make me leave this store, empty-handed!!!
Buy me something expensive, something new
Spend lots, don’t be a cheapskate, or I’ll get mad at you
Buy me things of great value, stuff to save
I want giant collections of ev’rything ever made!
