The Lyrics

Tis the season, let the madness begin......

Oh, Black Friday (damn the sham)
Whoa, Black Friday (jam the spam)
Black Friday goin' wild (wham and cram)
No place for a child (Sam or Pam)
Seemin' like most'a mankind (men and ma'ams)
Are out spendin' blind (slam the clams)
We're led, oh Black Friday (ram the lamb)
Whoa, Black Friday (lamb is rammed)

Whoa, Black Friday (traffic jam)
Go Black Friday (give a damn)
We really have to buy (fans: Japan)
But we don't know why (scan, exam)
We go, flock steady (cram and jam)
And the deals are heady (hams and yams)
Oh, Black Friday (cram your yams)
Whoa, Black Friday (jam the ham)

[Instrumental jammin']

Owe Black Friday (swam the dam)
No Black Friday (Uncle Sam)
We love burning clams (burn the clams)
Don't give a good damn (give a damn)
Yeah, we're achin' for bling (grams and grams)
Oy, you'd think we're kings (Ramses dams)
Oh, Black Friday (Sam I am)
Whoa, Black Friday: BAM-BA-LAM !

. me when it's over. ;-)

What an appropriate OS for this parody! I'm not sure whether I heard the Ram Jam version or another version, but the one I heard was pretty fast paced, loud, and, well, crazy! Great job on this one, 5s from me! Also, I did a Black Friday-related parody to... Check it out if ya have the time. ;D

Many minds thinking alike - my shopping parody is in today too. Yours pretty well captures the madness of this with the OS used. Nice one, Blackjack.

Long-awaited title switch done right. 555, and expect a Black Friday parody from me soon.

Practically perfect... and some crazy rhymin' to boot!

Good job, blackjack, and I will be doing my Black Friday shopping later this afternoon. I thought about doing a Black Friday parody, based on the song "Black Friday" by Steely Dan, but I ran straight into writer's block after I copied-and-pasted from and got one line done. $555 towards your holiday shopping.

Great take on the OS, blackjack! Especially about Black Friday. Oh, waking at 3am, falling in line for hours, shopping for discounted items at a limited time, and getting jostled, shoved, and bounced around like a pinball in a crowded store! I myself was about to do a Black Friday parody using Soundgarden's "Fell On Black Days", but I was too lazy and burned out from writing two parodies for this week, and I stayed up really late working on this Thanksgiving parody two days ago! There's always next year, but, there's more of my parodies to come soon, either before or after I come back from a two-week stay in Florida. Here's a discount coupon for 55.5% off on any item of your choice!

Andria: Thanks for the cash, hope your shopping went well.

DKTOS until I youtubed it to sing along with this too-good-to-just-read parody. Good job. BTW, Bj21, Louis,e Beavers & Cary Grant might suggest "Ham is Wham" (or vice-versa) as an "-am" rhyme line, :-)
