|Graphic art for Dollar Store|
Dollar Store is Fizzik Enjinn's second track, and the first to be written - some months before the rest of the album's songs were embarked upon. The subject of the song, an ephebophiliac manager of a store where everything costs a dollar was inspired by a post made by ShoeSmut, a member of the CamPanula's forum.
He worked in the dollar store, the dollar store
He loved the teen girls even more
Than he loved dollars, in the dollar store
He kept puppies, round the back
The girls who went there said 'Alack!
That guy who wears the plastic mac,
in the dollar store is a man-whore'
Please Ma don't send me down
To that dollar store, no not anymore
I don't like the way he stares at me
He used be OK
In the dollar store, I am fairly sure
'Till the day he heard I turned thirteen
Don't get wild, and don't tell Dad
He hasn't done a thing, I'm overreacting
It's just something I know I can feel
Ma, just don't send me there,
Send me somewhere else, send me anywhere
One dollar junk's lost all appeal
