The Lyrics

[Intro]
W-W-W-We need to make
We need to make
W-W-W-We need to make money
The Middle Class ain’t jokin’
We need to make

Listen to us now
Our voices screaming loud
We’re trying to show you that we have needs
Election plans unfurl,
As unkind words are hurled
When will someone hear our desperate pleas?

So if you want us voting
Economy must start growing
Give us all you got, we want everything
Not just at your leisure
Gotta keep those jobs here
Not outsourced somewhere overseas!

[Chorus]
We need to make money
We need to make cars
US made, US made, not shipped from afar
Need many jobs
Export rise to start
US made, US made, not shipped from afar

We need to make money
We need to make cars
US made, US made, not shipped from afar
Use Green Energy
This is who we are
US made, US made, not shipped from afar

[Voice of Economic Reality]
Hey, China’s not our friend
Cheat as much as they can
Manipulating their strong economy
All they tell is lies
They’re not on our side
Why is the US so trusting?
Sparking global fears- real
Trade war coming near- real
It’s the US they want to beat
Got to improve our economy-zeal
Trade’s ever all about money…

We need to make money
We need to make cars
US made, US made, not shipped from afar
Need many jobs
Export rise to start
US made, US made, not shipped from afar

We need to make money
We need to make cars
US made, US made, not shipped from afar
Use Green Energy
This is who we are
US made, US made, not shipped from afar

We’ve got to make better things
Through the good times, and the pain
Or things will stay the same
And we don't wanna keep repeating that again
So we’re letting you know upfront
The economy is Number One
Or face self-destruction
When finally push comes to shove

We need to make
We need to make
Billion dollar deals, Detroit wheels
We need to make
We need to make
A brand new start, by thinking smart
We need to make
We need to make
Laws that do stick, not slaps on the wrist
We need to make
We need to make
Money, money, money, money

We need to make money
We need to make cars
US made, US made, not shipped from afar
Need many jobs
Export rise to start
US made, US made, not shipped from afar

We need to make money
We need to make cars
US made, US made, not shipped from afar
Use Green Energy
This is who we are
US made, US made, not shipped from afar
US made, US made, not shipped from afar
US made…

Try changing the lyrics slightly and it'll be like pop music in a nutshell. 555

KPOP songs are hard even when in English b/c many lines do not rhyme. I had to modify 2 lines to rhyme and also change the song several times when I got to the chorus. Two lines need changing here. "Need many jobs" should be "Many need jobs" and one other line has bad grammar, should read "When push finally comes to shove" instead. But I still think I got my point across even with the repetition :)
