The Lyrics

We all have problems with the fuzzy p.a. systems (known as a "tannoy" in the UK after the brand, in a similar manner to bandaids and dumpsters) - just ask this guy!
We need to leave this damn shopping mart
The bad pricing only plays a small part
It's a big problem, yes, but what's worse, it's true
Is I cannot make a damn thing out under the tannoy muffle

What could it be? Tryna impart
Is cheese on sale? Is it time to depart
Because they're closed? Are there chimps on the loose (woo)?
No, I cannot make a damn thing out under the tannoy muffle

It might not matter now
But the train? We're screwed, miss your stop and how
Announcement's lost in the mix (woo)
Hard to describe the fuzz, it drowns right out

Cause you cannot make a damn thing out under the tannoy muffle

You really need those details fast
Can't pull your phone out, low on power
Won't stand and lose your seat, the task
Is left to tech stuck in the past

These shouldn't be so bloody damn hard
To understand, afraid they always are
Music sounds good, yes, but a real voice? Screwed (woo)
Cause no-one can make a damn thing out under the tannoy muffle
Really sucks, can't make a damn thing out under the tannoy muffle

I could've made a reference to the drive-thru speakers being similarly crap, but that probably deserves its own parody.
