The Lyrics

for all those people who theink the "cheap" wonderful stuff from CHINA helps the american economy, think again. buy NORTH AMERICAN MADE before all our factories and textile industries shut down. when they're gone, we're all in for it
lookin for deals, scanned for forty days,
this "made in China" makes me enraged
wee chong chongli makin this rack
it's poor and flimsy, that's an actual fact

here, amiright, let our voices ring,
I got to tell, you, about this thing
Taiwan products, just ain't right
cause soon our unemployment reaches new record heights..

wear an american brand
wear an american brand,
support your local town,
keep local poverty down
wear an american brand

tool and die man in omaha
waitin for an order, his lathe set to go
it ain't good it ain't right, laid off on Saturday night
the labour for slaves there, is way outta sight

now, here fine people, I have a plan
keep people working in the american land
I say come on dudes, we can conrtol
just buy it local, our economy rolls.......

wear an american brand
wear an american brand,
support your local town,
keep local poverty down
wear an american brand

wear an american brand
wear an american brand,
support your local town,
keep local poverty down
wear an american brand

But offshoring must be good for the country - just look at how CEO salaries and benefits have skyrocketed! :-(

Great idea, Malcolm, but oh so hard to implement. Not impossible, but really tough.

The only thing I buy from China is fireworks ( lighting one now: FUMP! ). " Wow, I've never seed a firework that made a number 5 in the sky ".
