The Lyrics

Sometimes there are just too many people in the one place. Enjoy!
They're packed too closely
I'm not a big fan of crowds, du-ude
An awful smell there
Haven't heard of breath mi-ints, have you-ou?
I hate to come here
But I need groc'ries, need steaks and pie-ies
So I'll have to bear
How the mall's clogged, cannot deny-y
That's ten times someone's bumped my rear, how rude

Ev'ryone's too close
Can't move, far too slow
Irate...hate this crowd
There's no traffic flow
In this mall, you know
Irate...hate this crowd

This is such a load
Huge bottleneck choke
Irate...hate this crowd
Take your boots right off mine
I'm on yours? Whoops, I
Don't mean to...I hate this crowd

Too cramped to swing a flea in here (it's true)
We're stacked shoulder to shoulder here
Forced two-metres-an-hour here (it's true)
It's hell turning a corner here, it's true

Strangers are so close
Can feel their sweat flow
Irate...hate this crowd
I don't blame all you guys
Same fate as me, right
I know you...all hate this crowd
I can't move, on a ride
Please push me aside
Can't stop...hate this crowd

If you think that it's bad in here (that's true)
Just wait 'til Black Friday gets here
Normally it's just cramped in here (that's true)
Wait 'til it gets violent in here, we're screwed

Fun fact of the day: Black Friday isn't a thing down here in Australia. There's not much point in having a sale the day after Thanksgiving when Thanksgiving isn't a thing. That's what happens when your country's origins lie in being a dumping ground for prisoners instead of a failed attempt at finding a trading route shortcut.

I'm the opposite and like big crowds for movie events, Comicons, auto shows, theme parks, etc... "Star Wars Episode VII" arrives Dec 18, 2015... 555!

^ Rob my brother can pretty much relate to the conqueror here when we went to see Collin Raye in concert a few years back it was a packed house and while in the lobby before the show he complained that it was too noisy in there I personally don't mind big crowds and I especially didn't mind such a large turnout of people to see Collin Raye it made me feel good to see that many people still taking an interest in his music! 5's

Jon, I live in Sacramento so we're building a $500 million arena that will attract sports fans and concert goers downtown. I miss the crowds. Our older arenas sucked, had bad acoustics. And air shows suck now too. No new classified aircraft since 1980s B-2 Spirit. The F-22 Raptor is a dog with halted production of 120 and the F-35 Lightning 2 is plagued by bugs and isn't in service. No official word on the TR-3A Manta or TR-3B ASTRA. No Super Valkyrie either or XR-7 Thunderdart. No Stealhhawk helo using German stealth rotor tech nor silent belt drive, exhaust masking, shrouded rear rotor, and faceted forward fuselage. Taxpayers pay for these black projects and we don't even get to see the results! It's absurd. Btw, drones suck and are unreliable despite operations by Nintendo Jockeys. Accuracy is a mere 23% after over a decade of studies. It was supposed to be 80%, but dream on Pentagon... If anyone thinks the USAF rules, think again. Germany's Eurofighter in mock combat with the F-22 BEAT IT just like the German inherited MiG-29s beat the USAF, Marines, and Navy fliers in the 1990s. Won't see that at any civilian air show!!! The other Eurocanards can beat the Raptor too (French Rafale and Swedish Gripen). And don't get me started on the entire Russian Sukhoi 27 family that is maverick. Let's see a Raptor perform Cobra maneuvers, barrel rolls, zero IAS dead stop in vertical flight with a slide around, and other mind blowing flying that would rip the wings off any US fighter. Now MiG has a Mach 4.3 sustained interceptor under construction, the MiG-41 Foxhunter and also introducing electro-optic systems and hypersonic AAMs! Meanwhile, over Syria and Iraq the USAF is flying F-15B Beagles and old B-1s!!! Russians have the Tu-160 Blackjack and Su-32/34 Fullbacks. What went wrong? Obama's demilitarization.
