Shopping Spree

Album: Redefining Music (2001)
  • Yeah, well I can't take it no more 'cause I'm going on a shopping spree, yeah
    Well I can't save no money cause I spent it on a shopping spree, yeah

    Flagstaff, Arizona
    It's been two weeks on the road with Sean na na na na na na na na
    Na na na na na na na na na
    One day before we did play
    We penned a song by us, for us
    We didn't have the verse but we had the chorus:

    Yeah, well I can't take it no more 'cause I'm going on a shopping spree, yeah
    Well I can't save no money cause I spent it on a shopping spree, yeah

    After the show, there's nowhere to go
    Everywhere's packed with white baseball hat frat boys
    So we end up at this empty place
    Got a flaming doc
    The Dali Llamas were the band scheduled to rock
    Benny Na Na looks at me
    I think I hear what he's saying
    "Atom, do you hear what they're playing?"
    They're going shopping

    Yeah, well I can't take it no more 'cause I'm going on a shopping spree, yeah
    Well I can't save no money cause I spent it on a shopping spree, yeah

    Shopping spree (x4)
    So Dali Llamas...whatever
    Spelled Salvador Dali and the animal, how clever
    You have a five string fretless bass
    You stole our song, now we rock your face

    I can't take it no more 'cause I'm going on a shopping spree, yeah
    Well I can't save no money cause I spent it on a shopping spree, yeah
    Yeah Writer/s: JOHN POWELL
