Lyrics

Who are these developers, have you ever seen one live?
They gotta live in Westchester, not in Queens or in Bed-Stuy
When one of them knocks on your door the Shopocalypse is here
We’re gentrified -- it’s getting weird

Pushback! Homogenizing in this big box
Pushback! Defend what’s left - save the small shops
Pushback! Chainstores give us migraines
Pushback! Where is Ginsberg? Where is Coltrane?

THIS TOWN AINT NO SUPERMALL

Who are these politicos, have you ever seen one live?
They gotta live uptown, somewhere where they can hide.
Who buys them all that TV time? He’s the one who broke your lease.
Officials slick their palms with grease

Pushback! Stop that Starbucks not another
Pushback! No your latte’s not my lover
Pushback! I don’t take slavery in my coffee
Pushback! We like Fair Trade 'cause it's tasty!

THIS TOWN AINT NO SUPERMALL

 Whoa Whoa Whoa
Pushback! If you're rich your view is scenic
Pushback! If you're poor you'd better dream
Pushback! Transnationals have their targets
Pushback! The working poor, the artists

THIS TOWN AINT NO SUPERMALL


THIS TOWN AINT NO SUPER...
THIS TOWN AINT NO SUPER...
THIS TOWN AINT NO SUPERMALL

PUSHBACK!
