To Be or Not to Buy
©2003 Ekendra Dasa
I was feelin’ low down cause I had no job
Instead of filet Mignon, I was eatin’ corn on the cob
Then a platinum VISA came addressed to me
So I cheered myself up with a big shoppin’ spree
To be or not to buy? That is the question.
Is it nobler in the mind to possess any less?
I just can’t stop. I’m in credit card bliss
If I could not shop, I would not exist.
I bought every trinket they had in that store
Then I got to thinkin’, “should I shop some more?”
Well, I had no limit on my plastic friend
And I did not feel timid, so I went shoppin’ again
When I missed all my payments, they repo’d my home
Had to move to the basement and live all alone
‘Cause they took all the clothes that I got from that store
And who wants to know you when you’re naked and poor?
