The Lyrics

If Sting had shopped at CVS, he would have written this one himself
I like to shop at CVS
But my patience they always test
At checkout I just grit my teeth
When I face their long ass receipts

It always reaches to the floor
No matter what I buy for sure
The length for it to transpire
When I leave, my item's expired

So long now
So wrong now
So long now
So wrong now

So long now
So wrong now
So long now

How many trees will be abused
For coupons I will never use
If you wind it up and not fold
It's as thick as toilet paper rolls

I chose and had them email me
But that was a big mistake you see
Though environmentally sound
It filled up my entire iCloud

So long now
So wrong now
So long now
