The Lyrics

Wal-Mart is not the only company involved in the Chinese toy debacle, but it’s the most fun to spoof.
Wal-Mart ain’t easy to love, but it’s hard to resist.
You’d rather not shop there, but your budget insists.
Asian-made bargains are on all the toy shelves,
And kids always want something new.
The Hot Wheels have cooled off, and Big Bird’s got bird flu,
So what’s a poor mother to do?

Mamas, don’t let your babies have low-priced Chinese toys,
Don’t give them new toys made behind the Great Wall.
Give something safer, like a cannon ball.
Mamas, don’t let your babies have low-priced Chinese toys,
Consumers can now see, the Chinese GDP
Should be on total recall.

Wal-Mart sells cheap children’s products that come without warnings:
Stuff that they’re made of might turn your skin vivid Grinch green.
But Wal-Mart’s market share just keeps growing bigger
Thanks to their cross-marketing plan:
The more toy trucks they sell, the more prescriptions they fill.
And shareholders think green is keen.

Mamas, don’t let your babies have low-priced Chinese toys
The most skillful Chinese design engineers
Make Rolex knockoffs, not plastic toy gears.
Mamas, don’t let your babies have low-priced Chinese toys
That Barbie from Peking will quickly be breaking
And end up like Britney Spears.

Attention Walmart choppers. On aisle 5 we have the new low-lead-rider replicas of the original 1956 Chevies on sale for only $5.55. And Tang-you for chopping at Walmart. Doh-Weno-Tardi.

Everything is great except one thing The song title....You need a better title But overall great job but you lost a point for the bad title

Valid criticism, showtime. I had planned to make "Mamas, Don’t let your Babies have Low-Priced Chinese Toys" the title, but it had about 7 characters too many for AmIRight. Actually, "Toys R'nt Us" was starting to grow on me; but since yours is the only comment pro or con, it appears that the cons win. Anyway, thanks for the constructive feedback, showtime.
