The Lyrics

To all Sears employees who are soon to lose their jobs and some who had already LOST their jobs.
[1st Verse:]
A great big firm is closing its doors right now
Online shopping is hitting it with a big pow
This company's in an economic shape that's real poor
And after that, brick-and-mortar stores are no more

Good ol' Sears Roebuck
Sears Roebuck
May you rest in peace

[2nd Verse:]
Closing all the stores, Kmart's doing the same thing too
Both of those things, are turning Sears lovers blue
It all started with the end of paper catalogs
Sears is now stuck in a great big ol' death spiral


Da, da, da, da, da, da,da
Da, da, da, da, dah, da, da
Da, da, da, da
Da, da, da, da-dah

(3rd Verse:)
The Craftsman brand now lives with Stanley Black & Decker
Hundreds of stores are closing on down forever
Amazon and eBay are the ones right behind this
This is the song that you may not want to diss


[4th Verse:]
Walmart took over retail rankings by storm
Sears' in 12th place something's not coming in warm
Poor Christmas sales closed more than 100 stores
Profits die down, there is no other Sears store!



Sears Roebuck may you
Rest in peace
(repeat several times)


(instrumental break)

[5th Verse]
Thanks to Lampert Sears will now rebuild itself
To avoid itself being shelved on the shelves forever
A Die-Hard store will be born In San Antonio
It just might help, but there just might not be enough


[6th Verse:]
Grandpa told me: not all things last forever
New things take place, no matter if it's clever
The computers are doing everything for us
Sears can't compete, so suffering is a big ol' must


[Solo: (x2)]
