The Lyrics

Lining up outside the mall
Fearless gals who push and brawl
Only the strongest will prevail.
The brave women of the Red Tag Sale

Shopping bags clutched to their chest.
These are shoppers, America's best.
One hundred women will try and fail,
Only five win the bill of sale.

Trained to thrive in Macy's land
Spotting bargains and designer brands
Women who work both day and night
Know the value of a well-placed bite.

"Put Gucci bags in my daughter's hope chest."
I'll make her one of America's best.
She'll be a catch for some lucky male,
And the queen of the discount sale

Back at home a young man waits.
His young bride hauls home a crate.
She has fought and won the day
Giving him huge bills to pay.
