A           
The consumer they call us, we're the people that buy 
                                       B7              E 
Well everyone else is out to sell some kind of merchandise 
   A                                D  
We run to the boss and tell him we need a bit more gold 
                     A          E                    A 
Some tax deductions later & we still wind up in the hole 
 
 
 
           A 
Cho...	Oh yes we are the people runnin' in the race 
                                      B7          E 
	Buyin' up the bargains in the old marketplace 
          A                              D 
	Another sale on something, we'll buy it while it's hot 
                           A              E              A  
	And save a lot of money spending money we don't got 
            D             A              E             A  
	We save a lot of money spending money we don't got 
 
 
The consumer they call us, we're fussy what we eat 
We look at the price of T-bone steak & buy Hamburg meat 
And all those fancy packages we take down from the shelf 
They're always full of good fresh air  
When they're not full of nothing else 
 
Cho... 
 
The consumer they call us, we always get a fair shake 
We buy a fridge that doesn't freeze or a stove that doesn't bake 
We can't buy nothin' lastin' lest we get that raise in pay 
Then they'd only charge us more for the things 
That cost us less today 
 
The consumer they call us, when the man comes thru the door 
To give us a deal on the vacuum if we buy a rug for the floor 
And how do we pay the finance when the monthly bills arrive 
We just send down the bailiff to reposess the car we drive 
 
The consumer they call us, we're always deep in debt 
From buyin' drawers in discount stores to fixin' the TV set 
We go to the bank for money and sign for another loan 
And pray that the Lord doesn't see us stop 
In the tavern halfway home 
 
Cho....
