Sisters, I'm troubled and I wear a frown.
My burdens are heavy. They weigh me down.
Let me tell you.
Sisters, I am weary, and my heart is sore.
Shall I tell you
I just can't find what I am looking for,
Though I've been shopping
Please won't you join in my song.
Oh, so I say please,
I'm on my knees.
I'm heartsick. I'm sobbing.
Cause I've been shopping, really shopping all day long.
My bunions won't stop throbbing,
Oh sisters, listen. I feel I have to speak.
I brought a salt and pepper set the other week
In Wedgwood china
I took it home and I got seven shocks
For my lounge diner.
When I saw the label on that box.
Not made in Britain,
For nothing coming from Hong Kong.
No, no, it was not British made.
So I said hey,
I will not pay
I said, you blew it.
So I can keep shopping, keep on shopping all day long.
Now do it.
Take back that shoddy cruet,
Oh sisters, let me tell you, I was in a mess
Looking for an inexpensive cocktail dress.
It isn't easy
Found one in polyester, not too dear,
But, Lord knows, you have to try.
But the changing rooms have altered since I was here.
It's all communal,
Stood in the middle of that staring throng,
Like a nude tribunal.
It makes you cry,
But I said no,
I will not go.
What did I feel? I felt podgy. I felt pimply.
But I won't stop shopping. I'll keep shopping all day long.
I felt my bottom was all dimply,
I'll tell you, sisters, and I'll tell you true.
You can't get uplift bras in turquoise blue.
Ain't it a shame,
Well now I have walked the length and breadth of every floor,
A crying shame?
And there isn't one beige candlewick pedestal mat in this whole
And I've been looking,
And we're gonna stand up straight and groan.
Really looking all darn day.
So I say, why?
I wanna die,
You may be feeling
We feel like shopping, and we'll go shopping all day long,
But with a cup of strong Darjeeling.
Yes all day long,
Keep on shopping, keep right on shopping, all day long,
