Protest Song - Globalize

First produced and released song.



Globalize
Words/Music - Mark Snyder, 2010

(Chorus)

Everybody wants the latest
Flatter screen and mega-size
We don’t wanna pay to make  ‘em
The answer is to globalize – globalize, globalize, globalize, globalize

Standing on the corner
Please employ me
Any job will do
Do you have one for me?
The factory took a dive
The retail outlets died
Our little town has tried
How will we survive?
Can we turn back time, before we globalized?

(Chorus)

Working in the sweat-shop
China’s story
Factory for the world
Make an i-thing for me
Cheaper every day
The other countries say
If you pay a living wage
We will take your trade
Can we turn back time, before we globalized?

(Chorus)

(Bridge)

For there’s only mantra –  for us to echo -  only one mantra that we must chant
Free trade is the answer – hear them all bellow –  discredited zealots just won’t recant
For there’s only mantra –  for us to echo -  only one mantra that we must chant
Free trade is the answer – hear them all bellow –  discredited zealots just won’t recant

Can we turn back time, before we globalized?

Corporate masters outsource
Padding  their numbers
Darlings of ‘the Street’
While the heartland crumbles
Paying dividends
The rally never ends
And everyone pretends
These are healthy trends
Can we turn back time, before we globalized?

(Chorus)
