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....
