I Just Spent Sixty Bucks at the Dollar Tree


MP3

This song describes what it’s like when you walk into the Dollar Tree for a single item, only to find yourself broke when you exit the building.


I just spent sixty bucks at the Dollar Tree.
Ended up with crayons, glue, and string. How did this happen to me?
I walked into this store for only one thing.
Now, several bags I’m carrying. So much for downsizing.

I just spent sixty bucks at the Dollar Tree.
Uncontrollable shopping spree. Got paper clips and candy.
I walked into this store for only one thing.
Now, home I bring DVDs. So much for downsizing.

So many items in my arms, that I had to grab a cart.
Where do I start? Garbage bags or in the aisle with crafts and art?
Mini chocolate bars. Didn’t expect my bill to be this large.
My excitement? Off the charts. They’ve got Tic-Tacs and Sweet Tarts.

Greeting cards. Happy birthday and thank you. They are two for a dollar.
Pick some up for weddings, birthdays, baby showers.
Yes, I got a calculator that I didn’t even need.
On the back of the box it says this item contains mercury.

The Dollar Tree allows me to get the things I need,
but three twenties left my wallet during this epic shopping spree.
I went overboard. My grand total soared.
Every item grabbed contributed to the double-digit price tag.

I did bad. Somehow bought dishwasher tabs.
Ended up with push pins. Mini cups. A sketchpad.
Staples. Wooden clothes clips. Gloves for your hands.
Coloring books and birthday party loot bags.

How do they do it? Everything’s a dollar. And they’ve got name brands.
Everything from home supplies to pens and checkout impulse grabs.
Sticky putty. Thumb tacks. Also, mini tissue packs.
Stack after stack of maps on a spinning display rack.

Fifty-six items after tax. How ’bout that?
I got me some colored sand and some mix for bubble baths.
Tabletop place mats and flash cards for math.
I got ten divider tabs and a box of waxy crayons.

Yes, they do have snacks. Cookies. Plastic silverware. Trays.
Napkins. Paper towels. I could be in there for days.
They have paper plates. Stacking games with unique shapes.
Dollar Tree detour; put a smile up on ya face.

I got some neon glow sticks and a bubble blowing kit.
I feel too legit to quit as I grab magnetic clips for my fridge.
Food containers. Clothes hangers. It’s a trip.
Yes, I am an addict. Got a glue stick and a new bucket.
