  • The original version of this song is ""Working at the Woolco Manager Trainee", which was written by Leon Dubinsky of Englishtown CB and Max McDonald of Sidney CB. Buddy & the Boys released the "Woolco" version on their first outing "Buddy". The original lyrics are: Workin at the Woolco Manager trainee Dollar forty four day, house ware aisle three. I was takin out the garbage when they opened up the door A stampede of crazy shoppers knocked me to the floor Chorus Last week I was in hardware, this week I'm in shoes. I got the working at the Woolco, Manager trainee blues Taking out the garbage and sweepin up the floor Learn how to sell, what an awful bore They promise a promotion but I think it's a joke Can't wait for my lunch break to sneak out for a toke (smoke) Chorus Eatin at the red grill nearly every single day The spoons are made of plastic, the soup is kinda grey You get up to have coffee, someone steals your seat French fries and gravy are the only thing to eat Chorus Listening to muzak hour after hour Surrounded day and night by phoney flowers Florescent lighting is eating out my brain "Attention Woolco Shoppers" is driving me insane. Chorus (Backwoods)
  • Song Lyrics:
    Workin' at the K-Mart, Manager Trainee
    Blue Light Special day, Housewares, aisle three
    I was puttin' up the Bic pens when they opened up the door
    Stampede of crazy ladies knocked me to the floor

    Last week I was in Hardware,
    And this week I am in Shoes
    I got the workin' at the K-Mart
    Manager Trainee blues

    Eating at the grill nearly every single day
    The spoons are made of plastic, my soup looks kinda grey
    Get up to buy a coffee, someone steals your seat
    French fries and gravy are the only things to eat

    Last week I was in Hardware,
    This week I am in Shoes
    I got the workin' at the K-Mart
    Manager Trainee blues
    I do, I truly do
    Whoo!

    They're teachin' me the layout of this lovely store
    I'm learning how to sell - what an awful bore
    The fluorescent lighting is eating out my brain
    "Attention K-Mart shoppers!" is driving me insane

    Last week I was in Hardware,
    And this week I am in Shoes
    I got the workin' at the K-Mart
    I'm workin' at the K-Mart
    Even Eddie Van Halen shops at K-Mart
    And Clarence Clemons shops at K-Mart
    K-Mart blues
    (Backwoods)
