You know it's funny.  Somebody posted this: 
and it led me to what was being parodied.  I spent New Year's Eve in Memphis one year.  It was extraordinary, but I was only passing through.  Had a nice meal and stayed in a nice hotel on a cross country trip.  I know Sainsbury's and Tesco, but have never had the pleasure of a visit to Lidl.

Haha! "forgot the damn' milk". Been there, got the T-shirt.

Literally.
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

There is an exception to every rule, apart from this one.

This is not a case of misheard lyrics, but a sense that Salvador DalĂ­ got a hold of some Steely Dan tunes.  It's worth holding on for the ice skating dancers at the end.


It's important to understand that this is a bittersweet lament, one that excoriates a lost love.  The bright peppy aspect of this version is truly sick.  Here is the original. 
Best youtube comment:  "There is no ice cream in your future."  That about sums it up.
