Everywhere You Go

by Barry Louis Polisar

Everywhere you go, there's stuff to waste your money on
TV and radio want you to spend it 'til it's gone
They'll sell you junk and garbage and then proceed
to sell you more stuff than you'll ever need
They advertise it all--so endlessly
But just in case it works, say this with me:

Mommy, Mommy, buy me new shoes
A videophone and a three day cruise
I want a new computer and a cell phone too
A digital camera and that new shampoo
A puzzle and a game and a color TV
Posters for my room and a DVD

Daddy, Daddy buy me that bike
With stripes on the side in the color I like
I need a new drum set and a super hero cape
A doll that can eat and can change her shape
I wanna toy dog and a big toy gun
And I think that Barry's CDs would really be fun....

Mommy, Mommy, buy me new shoes
A videophone and a three day cruise
I want a new computer and a cell phone too
A digital camera and that new shampoo....
