The Lyrics

From the forthcoming Matthias and Agrimorfee collaboration of "Amiright: Our Retail Musical "--or whatever Matthias is going to name it.
DKTOS? Samba with somebody at
I'm glad I made it here
I shall forever live in fear
My gosh, I swear I'll never shop in there again
Don't come in there for a dress
But if you want to look neato
Go shop at Banana Republic, man!

That was a big boo-boo!
They will humiliate you

There's no need for you to pay import tax, again
It's so ritzy, do you need proof
We got cool clothing to the roof
All styles and patterns look vaguely African

So, let's see...A print with jaguars

Oh wow!

Made in Korea!


Here's a purse with monkey's head!
And hey, I found it!
Small "clutches"**
Silk pouches!
And I see a lovely jacket for your next send-off!
Now aren't you glad you came?

Don't say it isn't quite the same
Don't regret it, ring it up, you are El Capitan!

But it's so funny how they priced up
To sell this crazy high-end stuff
They all go Banana Republican!

You won't have to dream about going on safari again
Sarong or resplendent in a fat turban
You might have need to replace them all now and again
When you become a Banana Republican

So if you are whites or you're blacks
Who desire to feign life here in high crust society,
Forget it if your credit's maxed
Or have no use for things like perfumes and accessories!

We thank you, but you simps are just quislings and you're nowhere, man!

Here we act like big snobs and shout the fact that we're

Don't you shop here on a lark
Not just a picnic in the park
Look at all the khaki crossed with all of the crinolines
Come in here and shop today
You can blow half your hard-earned pay
Oh come see, be Banana Republican!
Now no more peekin'!

Umbrellas on sale again!

Even though you rhymed "again" with "again" this was still a very good addition to our upcoming musical... Whatever the heck we're going to call it. Still there doesn't seem to be a plot to our musical, so if you can come up with something in another song that would be fantastic... I'm probably going to start working on "The Rant Song" now.

555 for your shopping trip, Sir, Oh, 'clutches' are ladies' purses, that don't have straps or handles, thus you must clutch!! Princess Diana was very fond of this type of purse.

I forgot all about our Scrubs: My Musical project. There are still a few songs on here we haven't polished off and I'm actually okay with that seeing that Scrubs isn't even on TV now but our shopping spree was a pretty entertaining one.

I remember the project, I never got around to finish my parody for it, sorry. Still enjoy reading your parody though, been a while.

(ABC) This was really well written, but I'm afraid I just didn't understand much of it. I guess that's what happens when an Australian tries to read a parody about popular American clothing stores. So yeah, I didn't really get this parody, but it's definitely not your fault. I'm just the wrong audience for this.

(ABC) Ugh.. Banana Republic. Thank God your parody was way better than the store is!
