The Capitol Steps - Buy Buy American Pie Lyrics

Buy, Buy American Pie by The Capitol Steps
A Long, long time ago
We used to get our food home grown,
And toothpaste used to make you smile,
It used to be youd shop with ease,
Never eating anti-freeze,
Youd plan to keep on living quite a while,
But now our good are all delivered,
From somewhere on the Yangtze River,
No one knows the source there,
So you might find some horse hair,
But if corporations maker a buck,
They dont give a flying &&&&. Peking Duck,
And with this system we get stuck today,
It makes you sigh.

Now when you buy, buy an American pie,
Your grandma didnt bake it,
It was made in Shanghai,

Where they engineered the apples to be juicy not dry,
But the crust is made of cardboard and lye,
Dont feed it to your dog he might die,
Now did you eat a Tastykake?
And did it make your stomach ache?
I could have said I told you so!
And the reason you are looking wan,
Is some guy took bribes in Sichuan,
So You just bit into Little Debbies toe,
And now the toys you bought from Fisher Price,
Have toxins deemed unsafe for mice,
And Elmo tends to wheeze,
Cause hes laced with PCBs
But in spite of all my problems seen so far,
When I see my new cheap DVR,
Ill even brush my teeth with tar and you will see,
That Ill buy, buy from some young guy,
I drive a Chevie and its heavy but the price is too high,
Soon twenty bucks will buy a car from Shanghai,
And honey thatll be the day we all die.
