Got ID? It's policy
We can't take that shit
I'll give you twelve bucks trade all up
Get fucked you can't have cash
Track Name: CALL CURTIS
We are just an outlet
We can't change
The fact that Beyonce already played
We don't control TI's flights
Crying won't change Springsteen's mind
Ever been outside before?
Stay at home and lock the door

Can I get a G.A?
Can I get a split pay?
Can I get a fuck you!

Can I get a front row?
Can I get a red zone?
Can I get a fuck you!
Track Name: CLOCKED OUT
Number slicks
Bundle slicks
Chuck them in the drawer
Sell the disc and grab the slick
Then chuck it on the floor

Track Name: HOTT CHIPZ
Hott Chipz Street Gang
Sunday crew
No motivation
Heaps of food
Chips and coke and comic books
Customers get dirty looks
Shit service
Shit-talking
End the shift
Start walking

Band practice at Tiger Spit
You get the beer, I'll get the chips

Hott Chipz Street Gang
Hott Chipz Street Gang

Sunday Crew!
Track Name: LET'S GO FUCKING HOME
Close up tix
Pick up the slicks
Hit the lights and
Let's go fucking home

Close up tix
Kick out the pricks
Hit the lights and
Let's go fucking home
Track Name: MCKINNON
Flicking through back catalogues
Of Naxos and Deutsche Grammophon
For only like the hundredth time today
Another dusty recording
Of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony
We'll pass the list along to James

Flicking through the bargain bins
A bony finger on his chin
And one eye on the darkie at the door
So leave in those security tags
And slap that sticker on his bag
Pass the cunt along to James
Track Name: ONE MORE CUP
Going to the coffee shop
Wait in line for one more cup
There's a queue ahead of me
Ten cents short can you spot me?

I can't stop shaking
One more cup!
I can't stop shitting
One more cup!

Hangover or lethargy
Guy brings out the best in me
Track Name: PLASTIC BAG
Do you want a plastic bag?
Hey take your time to decide
I understand your concern
But plastic bags don't grown on trees!

So take a bag
Or don't take a bag
We don't give a shit
How you carry it
Please move along
The queue is getting long
Plastic bags
Don't grow on trees!
Track Name: STICKER SWAPPING WHORE
Sticker swapping whore
We caught you at the door
Tried it once
But not again
Steve tackled you and now you're banned

Horsehead in your bag
Saw you now you're flagged
Tried it once but not again
Steve tackled you and now you're banned
Sticker swappin' whore
Caught you at the door

Cameras
Pick up shit
So dumb you're
Hard to miss

Tried it once
But you were shit
Tried it once
You need some tips
Tried it once
You fucked up
Now you're banned!
Track Name: STRUGGLING
With CDs full of MP3s
And getting all that shit for free
No money's floating round
And we're all struggling

Big boys have all lost their grip
And we're still here, independent
Clinging to the cracks
Like fucking weeds

Wanna know how we're doing?
Well we're struggling!
That's ok the rest of them
Are drowning
We'll be here, the last of them
Just laughing
Track Name: TEN MINUTE BREAK
Ten minute break
What the fuck should I do?
Time for a smoke
Or should I eat a food?
Hollywood's so greasy
And the dairy's out-of-date
If Wanda won't stop talking
I'll stab her in the face!

Ten minute break
What the fuck should I do?
Need to drop the cosby's off
But someone's in the loo
Chris Hart is talking
Why can he not see
Don't care about the markdown
I fucking need to pee!

Just got in the kitchen
There's a call out for me
Sarah's eating tuna
Casper stole my seat
Ten minute break
Then I'm back on my feet
Need to check my facies
I think I'll take fifteen!
Track Name: THURSDAY NIGHT DRINKING
Thursday night drinking
One more then I'll go
Call the alarm people
Who's got the code?

We need more tequila
It's your turn to go
Can I choose a record?
. . . Fuck no!

Thursday night drinking
Jeanette is calling
Friday night drinking
Jeanette is calling

Thursday night, Friday night
And every other night
Oh horseshit
Gotta go home
