NOT SAFE FOR WORK

Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

Assignment for songwriting class this week was to write a first person narrative about bad behavior. My partner dared me to write the song “Add to Cart,” so...here it is.

Lyrics: 

It’s 3am and I can’t sleep
So I decide to take a peek
At Amazon - what could go wrong?
I ask myself cajolingly

It’s so convenient - just one click
Between me and my every wish
Add to cart
Add to cart

I’ve fallen down a rabbit hole
I’ve read reviews of items sold
To other schmucks for twenty bucks
This shit is worth it’s weight in gold

It’s so convenient - just one click
Between me and my every wish
Add to cart
Add to cart

Got a notice in the mail
Over-drafted - debit fail
I’m in the red, over my head
Seduced by cheap online retail

It’s so convenient - just one click
Between me and my every wish
Add to cart
It’s so convenient - just one click
Between me and my every wish
Add to cart
Add to cart
Add to cart
Add to cart



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

This is timely and made me smile. I read somewhere that drinking and Shipp makes it even worse! Enjoyed this!

I like it. I’ve had to occasionally tell my wife « I may not have been completely sober when I ordered this... »
