Before the printer ran out of ink I was fine,
but now I gotta step into the big consumer line.
No Ma & Pa's left to help me out,
CompUSA was the only choice left around.

"I need another cartridge for my printer,"
I told Smiles behind the counter.
They were happy to sell me my new component
because it meant they had run out of town all of their opponents.

I came back a week later wondering where to complain,
"Your guy sold me the wrong size," I tried to explain.
"No problem, you can just exchange it,
we'll just charge you an extra 15%."

A minute later the manager and I had a little chat
Unyielding, he recited policy.
Repealing, I blamed his company,
and then jumped back in my car.

I tore out of the lot
still pissed at the treatment that I got.
No regard for other drivers,
driving home my knuckles got whiter.

Venting myself on other drivers.
Road rage was suddenly less ridiculous.
It was almost an excuse!

Soon my thoughts moved to the rest of the world,
all beheaded by the same profit-driven sword.
The unseen hands that ruin our lands
were now making me drive like a jerk.

You'd think some big mega-shop
would have the leniency to bend?!
Is there any worse feeling
than being taken by The Man?

Is there anything more invigorating
Than being reamed by some big faceless scam?
(phone system.)

For everyone unjustly ripped off
Or taken advantage of by some big, corporate scoff
(here's the real message, sing along!) Fuck The Man! Woohoo!

There's a million+ examples
why big business's are assholes,
but it never quite resounds
until they screw you personally.
Don'twait till then.
