Closing Down

Closing Down

No one cares for Mothercare
And Blockbusters' gone bust
Woolworths is worth nothing now
And neither's Toys R Us

No discounts now from MultiYork
And Poundworld's out of change
Thomas Cook has lost its looks
And Comet's out of range

Maplin's stores have all shut down
Joe Bloggs and much of HMV
Betterware is worse for wear
Like Patisserie Valerie

So say goodbye to MFI
Jessops has messed up
House of Fraser's on the floor
  Austin Reed will be no more
  BHS has closed its doors!
No one cares for Mothercare
And Blockbusters' gone bust.
