Lyrics

Know your Product
I’m just sitting in my chair
When a voice comes on the air
Says why don’t you try it
It’ll make you feel all right
Got some great new brand of smokes
Cools your head
And clears your throat
Keeps you young & so in touch

Advertising
You’re lying
You’re never gonna get me what I want
All that smooth talking brain washing
Ain’t gonna get me what I need

A great new soap that’s peachy keen
Saves your soul and keeps you clean
It’s recommended
Used by the queen
Going to improve your IQ
Helps with everything you do
It’s economic
Don’t cost too much

Advertising etc etc

 

[C. Bailey & E. Kuepper / The Saints]
