Lyrics
Believe me, no Bull, ya wanna be
part of the Global economy
instead of evil of normal size,
Now you have the whole wide world to victimize!

Globalization's an open door
So many ways to steal from the poor
and the first of those many ways is
Fire the people, give yourself a raise

Fire the people give yourself a raise
Fire the people, give yourself a raise
If you long for NAFTA or for WTO praise
Fire some more people give yourself another raise.

Workers may want the profits shared,
So it's important to keep them scared
Kick out the unions that show some spine
Then cut their pay or move away they'll have to fall in line

There's the tale of International Rags
Manufacturing American Flags
Workers asked for a little more
Now we pledge allegiance to a flag from Singapore

Fire the people, give yourself a raise
Fire the people, give yourself a raise
Oh sure we know it's heartless, but my god how well it pays
Fire the people give yourself a raise

Fire the people, give yourself a raise
Fire the people, give yourself a raise
We rob so many people in so very many ways.
Fire the people,
Fire the people,
Fire the people,
Give yourself a raise!
