The Lyrics

When you line up at the shopping center to get this years toy
You know that you will go in debt to get this years toy
Forget your fancy manners
That toy is all that matters
And you'll knock other shoppers flat to get this years toy

And you're hopin' when the doors are open you'll get this years toy
You'll soon be copin' with a crowd that's gropin' to get this years toy
Can't believe they're going to such measures
Acting like they're after buried treasure
While you shout "back off, I'm a leper" to get this years toy

Time's running out, it don't matter what it costs
It's all about getting what you want, and others can get lost

You push and shove to just get near it
'Cause it's this years toy
And you dispose of your Christmas spirit
For this years toy
Forget nonintervention
Just grab the clerk's attention
Hand over half your pension
Don't care who you offend
'Cause it's a fierce contention for this years toy
You'll try a circumvention for this years toy
'Cause it's a fierce contention for this years toy
Yeah!
