Buy Me Something!

From the album Chris Moose Holidays Buy Now

- 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

Chorus

 

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”

Chorus

 

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

     it stop

 

(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!!!

Chorus

 

Dream Sequence

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!
