Once upon a time there were three businesses all lined up in a row
You know, the kind of place, one store after another
And times were tough so everybody worried if they had enough
And competition heightened, each one trying to top the other

The first store owner had a thought and put it into writing
It was Friday and the sign went up, it shouted "Year End Clearance"
The second owner shrugged it off, she'd studied meditation
While the third store owner panicked at the first one's perseverance

So the third one made his own sign, it said "Going Out of Business"
He hoisted it on Saturday, so now on either side you had
A "Year End Clearance" and you had a "Going Out of Business"
So the owner in the middle did the only thing she could

She didn't wanna do the hype, she knew that she'd get hers all right
She wasn't out to win nor was she out for any vengeance
With "Year End Clearance" on the one side and
"Going Out of Business" on the other
It was Sunday when her sign went up
And all it said
"Main Entrance"
