Sadness, longing, deep despair,
Disappointment, I don’t care
What’s my problem, here’s the plan
Make me happy, if you can.
One thing’s sure to do the trick
Whether I’ve been sad or sick
Take me shopping, let me play
This will take my blues away.
Small tianguis, giant mall
Chic boutique, I love them all
Dresses, jeans, a purse, new shoes
Jewelry’s sure to fix those blues.
Housewares, knick knacks, gadgets too
All will make me feel brand new
A “shopaholic” I may be
But retail therapy works for me!
