The Lyrics

Satire about corporate globalism and its conservative cheerleaders
(instrumental intro)

Taking over around the world.
To the corporations, we are meat.
Big wigs cheer, they're helped by the Right.
They're dancing in the suite.
They're dancing in Chicago...
Down in Washington...
Up in New York City...

Profits are sweet music, sweet music.
Corporate abuse everywhere.
Big wigs are singing, saying, "Big profits!"
Playing, they're dancing in the suite.

Peoples' lives are shattered; they don't care.
For so long, it's been unfair.
Like Enron, these crooks just grabbed the world
When they were caught, scandals swirled.
Still, they're dancing...
They're dancing in the suite...

HMO's that won't pay (HMO's that won't pay).
You pay more, and receive less (you pay more, and receive less).
And just forget your drug prescription (just forget your drug prescription).

Profits are sweet music, sweet music.
Corporate abuse everywhere.
Big wigs are singing, saying, "Big profits!"
Playing, they're dancing in the suite.

(instrumental break)

Peoples' lives are shattered; they don't care.
For so long, it's been unfair.
Like Enron, these crooks just grabbed the world
When they were caught, scandals swirled.
Still, they're dancing...
They're dancing in the suite...

HMO's that won't pay (HMO's that won't pay).
You pay more, and receive less (you pay more, and receive less).
And just forget your drug prescription (just forget your drug prescription).

Energy price outrage in California...
Gut the EPA, put the hex on OSHA...
The thieves are here, don't say we didn't warn ya...

(instrumental fade)
