The Lyrics

This year, Walmart smartened up and brought back layaway for electronics and toys during the holidays. Of course, other stores never ABANDONED it. Here's MY take on it. Share and Enjoy!
Each holidays, I'm more confused
And each passing Black Friday is more insane
Now all of these cred cards I'll have to lose
Christmas is a pain...my money it drains...

Oh, get me to K-mart and save me dough
I wanna get stuff and want it to go on layaway
Oh, get me to Target to save my cash
I grab all I need then I make a dash to layaway

Begin with a 3DS for my son
My daughter wants ev'ry Barbie, too
Wife wants the latest from Pier One
I'm counting on you...pay in chunks 'til it's through...

Oh, get me to Walmart and heed my call
I wanna get gifts and then put them all on layaway
Oh, get electronics and get some toys
I'll pay it off slowly 'cause that's the joy of layaway

And now my time is free
And it's relaxing me discreetly
Some mid-December day
I will go back and pay completely

Now I can enjoy the Christmas-time
And ignore the vast mall parking lots full of cars
I'm sure I'll still spend ev'ry dime
Then pay off my cards...maybe by March...

Oh, get me to K-mart and save me dough
I wanna get stuff and want it to go on layaway
Oh, get me to Target to save my cash
I grab all I need then I make a dash to layaway
Oh, get me to Walmart and heed my call
I wanna get gifts and then put them all on layaway
Oh, get electronics and get some toys
I'll pay it off slowly 'cause that's the joy of layaway
