lyrics

Everything Is Cheaper Than It Looks

Come right in but mind the step, the name is Archie Moore
Pleased to meet you one and all, and welcome to my store
Seven generations got their pictures on the wall
Junior’s here right by my side to take care of you all
So you see it’s plain that we are not your average crooks
Everything is cheaper than it looks

Walter's in the basement, just trying to make a crust
He ain’t seen the sun in 15 years and his eyes have turned to dust
Sally’s in the backroom dishing out the pills
Potions, herbs and remedies to cure all of your ills
You’ll be coming back for more cos it’ll hook you what she cooks
Everything is cheaper than it looks

We’ve got boiler suits and gasmasks left over from the war
There’s a box of purple umbrellas over by the door
Rows and rows of sweatshop clothes with such a modest tag
You may think you care but life’s not fair and it’ll jump right in your bag
A box of plastic avocado shower curtain hooks
Everything is cheaper than it looks

So don’t be shy if you’re passing by, pop in and pass the time
We get new stock around the clock and things are going just fine
Ten kinds of toxic scented candles just new in today
And fat-free beer and virtual cheer to help you on your way
We got cardboard chairs and rubber cheese
And plastic birds in plastic trees
And all of these are cheaper than they look
