The Lyrics

Don't make me tap the sign...
Oh-oh, yeah-eah

Hey, manager? This man's somehow convinced
That we have these shoes on sale
I've tried to tell him we sell electronics
He thinks I tell tall tales
Been brainstormin' some ways that we can avoid
This nonsense, all I've got
Is that each wall gets slapped with a big poster
Statin' what kinda things that we flog


People get adamant that they know what should work
And what is the truth despite
The rules I've been given just can't be bent or twisted
Evident their words are lies
It's gonna drive me crazy, tryna get the masses to see it
That their coupon simply can't be used
A simple proposal, suggest a font that's 40-point size
Then put in in bold, shit's huge, uh


Need to know what requests will net them "No"'s
If it's not constant, those folks will try
The old excuse that nobody said before it ain't right
Oh-oh, try: sign

Oh, where should they be? On each aisle
Each checkout there, tacked on
If one of them falls off the damn wall
We gotta fix that one blank spot
Sign, hmm

You might say it won't work, that folks'll show up
And ignore whatever words we write
Well, I'm still optimistic, hopin' they'll understand what is right
Oh, time, oh, time
Time for a sign


Time for a sign, lots of them, I
Think it'll all go great
Put up enough, it's what I call insurance
Against the wave
Of "Didn't know"'s



Why, yes, I am unreasonably giddy with my title flip, as I'm sure all none of you are asking but I need to point it out anyway.
