Shary: If there's a task that must be done,

Don't turn your tail and run,

Don't pout, don't sob,

If... you... cut every corner

It is really not so bad,

Even mom and dad.

Shary: And the clerk who runs the store

For meat!

Apu: For meat!

Shary: And milk!

Apu: And milk!

Both: From 1984!

Shary: If... you... cut every corner,

You'll have more time for play,

Shary & OFF: It's the American waaaaay!
