LYRICS

Is there anybody out there
Who would like a little bit of what I got?
I promise not to take up too much of your precious time
And it should only take a minute
It’s a deal, it’s a steal, the sale of the century
Don’t walk away or you’ll surely regret it

‘Cause it’s bargain time
A consumable delight, so get in line
Everything must go, but don’t panic
Everything’s for sale if you got the readies

Is there anybody out there who’d like a little bit of what I got?
It’s got your name written all over
Sound too good to be truer than it generally is
I got that in red, white, and blue
Coffee color yellow right up to curfew
Step back in time for one night only
We slenderize for solely the lonely

Is there anybody out there who would like a little bit of what I got?
You’re on a promise, a slide warranty that comes
With worthless twaddle that I can’t guarantee
I sell ice to Eskimos for tuppence a bag
Or a line of guacamole to the holy in drag (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Oh, I’ll blow you a smoke screen from the soles of my feet
They’ll lead you up and down along a one-way street (along a one way street)

Step back in time for one night only
We slenderize for solely the lonely
Step back in time for one night only
Will slenderize for solely the lonely
Step back

EDITORS REVIEW

Mike kicks off this track with a Beach Boys-style organ intro that evokes a late '60s vibe, complemented by Chris's gritty guitar riff and subtle saxophone backing. As I listen, I can't help but reminisce about the con artists who used to sell fake jewelry and watches on Oxford Street in the '80s, with their lookouts and eager buyers ready to snatch up these supposed bargains, as the lyrics suggest.

The track maintains a consistent chord progression throughout, which doesn't vary much to keep the listener engaged. However, the continuous presence of the guitar riff and mellow sax backing, with occasional sampling of horns, adds a layer of depth and texture to the piece.

TRACK RATING: 7/10
