Take a walk on Madison
The handbag hounds are out again
I can hear the oohs and ahhs
Rising from the sidewalk sale
From the girls in Vogue to the Hip-Hop Chill
It’s okay to trap and kill
In the name of fashion

It’s a lazy afternoon
And the papers say the end is soon
And the kids are deep in a TV haze
And the Middle East is going crazy
But what can we do? Lazy afternoon

Talk a walk on Sunset
It’s a party you won’t soon forget
I can smell the new-age coffee
Rising from the strip mall chain
Cause we need fast food at every turn
So it’s okay to slash and burn
In the name of hunger

It’s a lazy afternoon
And the papers say the end is soon
And the corporations overgraze
So the Little Guy can’t get a raise
Hey, but what can we do? It’s a lazy afternoon

It’s a big commercial grin
It wears me down until I give in
There’s a barcode where my heart should be
Oh, TV, tell me what I need
I don’t care how it got to the store
Just give me more, more…

It’s a lazy afternoon
And the papers say to move out to the moon
Cause the Earth’s getting down in toxic haze
And our money goes, but the problem stays
Hey, so what can we do? Lazy afternoon…
Hey, so what can we do? What can we do?
Lazy afternoon…

    General CommentI adore peppy songs with biting social commentary. I really do. And I'm going to be a sheep and say she makes really good points with which I agree completely.
