window shopping

see the pretty lights
says the pretty little girl
see the pretty things mama
        in the window
skips on by
        I am too young to be
        unemployed at christmas
        too old to find a job
        ten dollars in my wallet
        I’ve given up on holidays
        but still have eyes that get blinded
        by the glitter
see the pretty things mama
        in the window
all the pretty things
        in the window
there’s something I need
there’s something I want
        in the window
a new teddy bear
        in the window
a glass bauble
        in the window
gimme that doggie
        in the window
a new fairy tale
        in the window
a new computer
a new windows computer
with windows on the world
of thing to want
of things to need
        in the window
some new friends
        in the window
a new life
        in the window
a new cliché a fifty k
suv
vacation in cancun
with the nude dancing girl
at nude girlies dot com
give it a whirl
might be the bomb
might be the bomb
        in the window
the happiness
        in the window
a candle
        in the window
a whole world
        in the window
a whole new world
        in the window
a world without desire
        in the window
a world without hunger
        in the window
a world without war
        in the window
a whole new world

in the window
