I’m a big cash sucking pig
The market’s rigged I bring it all together.
See how they shop for socks in a pack, see how they pay.
I’m smiling.

Giant box of cornflakes, waiting for the truck to come
Corporation tee-shirt, stupid bloody Smiley.
Man, you been a greedy boy, you let the lines grow long.

I am the big box, we are the big box,
I am the Walmart.
Cha cha cha-ching.

Orange-red vested greeter standing
Gray haired little greeters in a row.
See how they smile at shoppers in the aisles, see how they run.
I’m buying. I’m buy-----ing.
I’m buying. I’m buy-----ing.
Yellow gallon mustard, sitting on a close out shelf
Grab a crock of cheese spread, calorific foodstuff,
Boy, you been a naughty girl you marked the stickers down.

I am the big box, they are the big box,
I am the Walmart.
Cha cha chaching.

Sitting in the worker break room waiting for your check
If the check is small you get your food stamps
Working below living wage

I am the big box, they are the big box,
I am the Walmart.
Goo goo ga-joob goo go you’re-screwed

Tasteless waste food choking diners
Don’t you think Sam Walton laughs at you? (ho ho ho, he he, ha ha ha)
See how they try to get unionized, hung out to dry,
We’re spying.
Running up the bank card, ammo for the rifle powered.
Element’ry school girls buying Britney Spears tunes.
Man you should have seen them pimping Oprah’s latest pick.

I am the big box, we are the big box,
I am the Walmart.

about

Jeff and Maya Bohnhoff San Jose, California

Jeff and Maya have an identity crisis. Their music is sometimes uproariously funny parody (like their spot-on "Bohemian Rhapsody" parody "Midichlorian Rhapsody", or hauntingly beautiful, like "Road to Jerusalem" or "Manhattan Sleeps". One way or another, their music will create strong emotions. Jeff and Maya have been creating music together since 1979, and plan to continue for some time to come. ... more
