Jailhouse Payback - On Wax

lyrics

Your mom's gonna give you $10 to let you pick out one cassette
This time when your hand goes for 'Hyesteria', put it back and buy Document
Don't worry about blowin' your first paycheck
On 45s and bleached pants
You still got that new order single,
Even though you never dance.

Don't let mom and dad sell all your vinyl
Keep your cassettes in that wooden box you built!
The time is gonna come when you'll wanna hear a song
on wax, the way that god intended it.

Don't let mom and dad sell all your vinyl
Keep your cassettes in that wooden box you built!
The time is gonna come when you'll wanna hear a song
on wax, the way god intended it.

You're gonna feel bad about the record club,
10 CDs for just one penny.
Too good a deal for a kid without any.
That fine print suckers in so many.
Guess what kid? It ends up ok.
You still got a few of them left
Camper Van Beethoven, Husker Du,
And the Replacements
And the Best of the Grateful Dead

Don't let your mom and dad sell all your vinyl
Keep your cassettes in that wooden box you built!
The time's gonna come when you'll wanna hear a song
on wax.....
on wax.....
on wax...... the way god intended...... it.
