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.
Now we are gifted with the TPP.
Corporate Welfare for all to see.
American jobs flow across the seas.
While the one-percent take their ease.
