Made in America
Lyrics
it doesn't take a legal scholar
to see how they shafted us with NAFTA
and that's a whole lot of jobs we had here, brother
that we don't have anymore
but on this mortal coil
sometimes you need a quart of motor oil
so I went midnight shopping, down at the super-mart store

well I couldn't quite believe it
I would have even paid to see it
because everywhere I looked
it was girls, girls, girls, galore
they were buying make-up and bananas
wearing peek-a-boo see-through pajamas
midnight shopping, down at the super-mart store

now I can't remember what it was I came in here for
midnight shopping, down at the super-mart store

I try to buy local
made in America
I don't believe in monopolies
and tax cheat multi-nationals
it may be only my opinion
but their goal is complete corporate world dominion
midnight shopping, down at the super-mart store

it said "pretty in pink"
on her perfect little fanny
and now their gonna need a clean up
down on aisle number four
I backed into a display
mystery gravy made in Singapore
midnight shopping, down at the super-mart store

don't you recognize her, she's the grown up girl from right next door
midnight shopping, down at the super-mart store

a three-sixty panorama
tramp stamps and cut rate glamour
toothpaste from Korea
cowboy hats from China
every kind of plastic gismo gidge and gadget
and to think we think have to have it sure is tragic
midnight shopping, down at the super-mart store

I guess my guilty little secret ain't so secret anymore
midnight shopping, down at the super-mart store
midnight shopping, down at the super-mart store
midnight shopping, down at the super-mart store
