The Lyrics

#44. The ever-popular economical controversy.
In the light of the screen
Figures adding up on my Dell machine
Our profits all are lost, recompense for this expense
There's too much labor cost, he said

We can't do this, we won't make a buck, oh yeah
He said, I've been thinking, we might be in luck, oh yeah

I've heard of overseas, shipping all our work
Across the Internet
When budgets are askew, we're not the only ones
Who find an Asian crew
He said

Should we do this, things will turn around, oh yeah
He said, I've been dreaming, we'll get off the ground, oh yeah

He said I think I'll go to Bangkok
Where they'll take lower wages
We'll pay three bucks an hour, to code all of our games
We'll get into Indonesia, and it will all be better
Our customers will love it, with prices down the drain
I think I'll got to Bangkok
And by the way, you're fired
Cuz I don't need assistance, with Indians on the line
They get up at sunrise, while I just watch the sunset
Some folks think it's a bummer, more jobs here would be nice

He said, I must do this, this is my big break, oh yeah

Bangkok... who says that it's a shame...

I think you have something of a point in poking fun at Thailand - there was a coup in there, and the army dudes and the tanks became a tourist attraction...
