See, Saw, Marjorie Daw
See, saw, U.S. jobs went offshore,
Margie shall have no task master.
She shall get not a penny in pay,
'Cause Chinese work so much faster.
Flim, flam, George didn't give a damn,
That Jimmy can't work under NAFTA.
He cannot say why his job went away,
Big Business lived happily ever after.
