The Lyrics

I heard something on a news program at school about North Korean refugees, and the chorus to my parody instantly played in my head. I hope you like it!
You've got something going on in Asia
They don't talk too much about it
Yeah it ain't no real big secret
It's better than starving to death

It's not really headlined that much, baby
If you're caught, then you will be seiged
You're a bunch of North Korean refugees

Somewhere, somehow
Starvation must have kicked you around some
Who knows why you'd wanna live there, so then, why don't you abandon?

It's not really headlined that much, baby
If you're caught, then you will be seiged
You're a bunch of North Korean refugees

Baby, you ain't the first
I'm sure a lot of other Asians have done it
Right now, people starve down there
But it's one of those things that makes me feel so blue

Somewhere, somehow
Starvation must have kicked you around some
Who knows why you'd wanna live there, so then, why don't you abandon?

It's not really headlined that much, baby
If you're caught, then you will be seiged
You're a bunch of North Korean refugees
