The Lyrics

Narrator: A cashier... rhymes with "beer," which is what he needs after dealing with somebody like this.
Cheapskate!
(Cheapskate!)
You better get on home!
Cheapskate!
(Cheapskate!)
No, the price ain't wrong!
You're bad!
(You're bad!)
You're holding up the line!
Cell phone!
(That phone!)
To talk, this ain't the time!
Cheapskate!
(Cheapskate!)
I'm gonna kick your ass!
Cheapskate!
(Cheapskate!)
You better get out fast!
You're cheap!
(You're cheap!)
I'm gonna punch your nose!
Baby, look at that clock
we're supposed to be closed!

Well, you came in my store at a quarter to nine!
That item's on sale, it really works fine!
But you just had to be a rotten cheapskate!
It's thirteen bucks, don't tell me eight!

Look, pal!
(Look, pal!)
Don't give no lip to me!
Hoo-ee!
(Hoo-ee!)
Look like a bum to me!
Cheapskate!
(Cheapskate!)
You want my manager?
No, sir!
(No, sir!)
You won't agree with her!
Cheapskate!
(Cheapskate!)
The price is never wrong!
Cheapskate!
(Cheapskate!)
Won't you run along?

(James Burton guitar break)

Cheapskate!
(Cheapskate!)
I'm gonna kick your ass!
Cheapskate!
(Cheapskate!)
You better get out fast!
You're cheap!
(You're cheap!)
I'm gonna punch your nose!
Baby, look at that clock
we're supposed to be closed!

Well, you came in my store at a quarter to nine!
That item's on sale, it really works fine!
But you just had to be a rotten cheapskate!
It's thirteen bucks, don't tell me eight!

Look, pal!
(Look, pal!)
Don't give no lip to me!
Hoo-ee!
(Hoo-ee!)
Look like a bum to me!
Cheapskate!
(Cheapskate!)
You want my manager?
No, sir!
(No, sir!)
You won't agree with her!
Cheapskate!
(Cheapskate!)
The price is never wrong!
Cheapskate!
(Cheapskate!)
Won't you run... along?
(Cheapskate!)

Good point, well done, should be 555, but can ya give it to me for 495? OK, 555 it is..... but don't let Red Ant catch you duplicating choruses!

DKTOS, but funny read, 555s

All sales are final, Turtle, so SHELL out the full price. And the Ant is a valued customer, unlike the grasshopper, who did not buy our winter preparation products. (Let's see if anybody gets that joke.)
