Lyrics

I drive by Airports three times a day
Synchronizing every single move
It's on the airwaves you're coming my way
Sure I don't have much to lose
I'm a fumbled rekkid star
They call me DJ Mini-Mart
Cause that's where I work

Everybody knows I fell afoul of fame
And you're to blame that I am What'shisname
I'm setting an example - you're the one I choose
For page two news, it's my Retrieval of you

For right behind you, don't turn around
I was the one who cut your first song
Get in the backscat, keep your head down
Didn't I shout it all night long?
Now you're a fabled rekkid star.

And I'm DJ Mini-Mart
Cause that's where I work

I've got a boxcar with blankets and bread
In sector 9 where no one goes
I bought a pillow for that precious head
You'll be fine once you get to know me again
I'm a fumbled rekkid star
They call me DJ Mini-Mart
Cause that's where I work

I drive by airports practicing retrieval of you
