"Stacking Stuff On Shelves"

Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

Don't mind the over-abundance of dashes, it's Billy's fault for doubling the end syllable of damn near every line.
When your food supplies are lo-ow
And to the grocery store you go, go
Take a couple of seconds
To take in the perfection:
The layout of the she-elves

I tell you, I worked all ni-ight
To create this lovely si-ight
Nothing can go wrong
Cuz my pay depends on
The way I stack things on she-elves

Oh, stacking shit on she-elves
Oh, stacking stuff on she-elves
Yeah my stacking is smooth
In the right places, too
Good at stacking shit on she-elves

When I look all around the sto-ore
There's a thing I can't igno-ore
Causin' lots of stress
When the people mess
With my layout on the she-elves

Can't put things back in their pla-ace
Just in the nearest empty spa-ace
And so ev'ry night
I waste most of my time
Re-organising all the she-elves

Oh, taking things off she-elves
Oh, place on the right she-elves
It's been turned upside down
And that just makes me frown
Sorting out the bloody she-elves

Now I look all around the sto-ore
There's things that are on the flo-or
How did they get there
Pulling out my hair
Put them right back on the she-elves

I see kids aged four to si-ix
They're the ones knocking down the shi-it
Bloody sick of them
Put the things back again
How long will they stay on the she-elves?

Oh, things knocked off of she-elves
Oh, put back on the she-elves
If I had the chance
I'd kick them in the pants
Wish I had the chance
To kick them in the pants
I won't get the chance
Can't kick them in the pants

Oh oh oh-oh
Oh oh oh-oh
Oh oh oh-oh

(Oh oh)
Stacking shit on she-elves
(Oh oh)
Stacking shit on she-elves
(Oh oh)
Stacking shit on she-elves
(Oh oh)
Stacking shit on she-elves
(Oh oh)

Oh oh oh-oh
Oh oh oh-oh
Oh oh oh-oh
Oh oh

Now I'm walkin' around the sto-ore
And I can't take anymo-ore
I'm just mad and pissed
So I take a kick
At a random bottom she-elf

Then I think to myself "Shi-it
This one is wobbly, isn't i-it?"
I empty my bowels
As ev'rything falls down
On top of me and off the she-elves

Oh, falling off the she-elves
Oh, shit falls off the she-elves
Falling on to me
This just isn't my week
I collapse with ease
I blame my weak-ass knees
Someone help me please
It's kinda hard to breathe

Oh oh oh-oh
Oh oh oh-oh
Oh oh oh-oh
Oh oh oh-oh

(Oh oh)
Brought this on myse-elf
(Oh oh)
Brought this on myse-elf
(Oh oh)
Brought this on myse-elf
(Oh oh)
Brought this on myse-elf
(Repeat to fade)

Intresting subject that didn't give you much to work with but you did a pretty good job about being a grocer.

I used to work in retail, I can relate. Good one

Sounds like you're OC-DC instead of Idol... ;-)

Someone very close to me is a shelf-stocker on the midnight shift at Walmart, so I know how true some of this parody is!

(Artistry) Shelves are full in aisle 555!!!
Abbott Skelding - May 04, 2010 - Report this comment
Artistry- Great job! 555 more shelves to be filled

(Artistry) Love the idea. I think you could have squeezed some extra humor out of this one by making jokes based on what you were stacking on the shelves.

Agree with Rex, but I really liked it overall. I thought the way you stressed the endings made it easier to envision a recording. A few little stretched rhymes and such here and there, but I loved the obscurity of the title and how well it seemed to fit the song. I could see in my head this being in a musical about working at a grocery store.

Great Job. I can relate working in retail. What is the B side to your single? Aisles All Out of Place put to Eyes Without A Face.
