The Lyrics

Chrysler would never send jobs over to China...hrmm, it looks like they did but such an action is inevitable. When created infrastructure becomes sufficient to boost the Cost of Living, wages have to match that new value and countries with a lower COL that can pay people less for the same work....I will bore you no longer with economic theory because this is a place to laugh and poke fun at lyrics. When I read about Chrysler sending jobs to China, I recalled this amusing song by Cab Calloway... B.C. Authors own acronym for B(ritish)C(olumbia) Bud, a rather potent marijuana blend
The Chrysler Man

(Sung to "The Reefer Man" by Cab Calloway)


Now what's the matter with that cat there?
Must be full of Reefer!
Full of Reefer?
Yeah Man!
You mean that cat's high?
Sailin'!
Sailin?
Lightly
Getting away again?
Man? Is that the Reefer Man?
No, that's someone smoking Reefer!
Really? It looks litke they are someone in charge of things!!
That they are and it makes things even scarier...listen up!


Have you ever met that funny Chrysler man?(Chrysler man)
Have you ever met that funny Chrysler man?(Chrysler man)
If he said I'll build in the Carolinas
And then ships the jobs to China
Then you know you're talkin' to that Chrysler man!

Have you ever met the funny Law Making man?(Law Making man)
Have you ever met that funny Law Making man?(Law Making man)
If he says that his reasoning is flawless
(Though laws are ignored by the lawless)
Then you know You're talkin' to the Law Making man

Have you ever met this funny House Rep man?(House Rep man)
Oh baby baby baby House Rep man(House Rep man)
If he hears of any Reform notion
He backslides with powerful motion
Then you know you're talkin' to that House Rep man

Have you ever met funny Senator man?(Senator man)
Have you ever met that funny Senator man?(Senator man)
If he says he works in DC
and you're smelling some strong B.C.
And you know You're talkin' to the Senator man

Have you ever met the funny Electorate, man?(Electorate, man)
Have you ever met the funny Electorate, man?(Electorate man)
Though they're seized by a progress mania...
They send the same people to Pennsylvania!
Then you knowYou're talkin' to the Electorate, man!

Old Man Ribber - January 22, 2013 - Report this comment
Although all the verses ring true, I especially recall the video of Chrysler assembly line workers smoking dope and chugging alcohol on breaks. Most were not disciplined and the others have since been re-instated due to pressure from the United Auto Workers. Good parody, and there is a recent fantastic version of the original song by Big Bad Voodoo Daddy available. ;D
