The Lyrics

Oh it's so pricey to be shopping here, takin' so long girl
And with the crowds in here it's here I stand
And I'm feeling quite duressed
But I heard they now have a self-check out line
Puttin' me to the test
Now I'm going to get all palpitated
At the flashing of those dollar signs
Cause I don't know how people put up with all this
I only know this bag ain't mine

Those damn machines are killing me
Oh Albertsons
What did I do?

Well, I see you got a Starbucks now
Cause you're gonna be in there forever, might as well get a cup
Just try to push that brew and your phone
While your cart holds everyone up
Sometimes I wish that I could shop without talking
When I knock down the boxes in my way
I think somebody better take down the big sign
That claims lower prices every day

The friendly smiles are killing me
Oh Albertsons
My pain is you

My pain is you

Hee hee. Quite a racket they've got going -- you pick it, you scan it, you bag it, they take the money. Great idea and execution.

Cool parody

Some of the Albertsons in Vegas are nice, but most of them are a bit run-down and overpriced. Some used to be part of a chain called Lucky. Great parody.
