Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Dedicated to the man, other than those named Bush or Clinton, most responsible for our humungous trade deficit. He does, however, deserve a bit of applause for letting his stores help out with relief from Katrina. "Cathay" is what certain medieval Europeans called China.
Richer than many CEO's, his name is Sam

Sam, lower prices you bring to us
Hey Sam, let me tell you why there's a fuss
Chinese workers won't tell

Think, of that trade deficit
Think, how we're paying for it
Now think how they're treating the workers
Who make what you sell

Sam understand, please understand
Although I know that you're still the boss
Sam you should know, sir you should know
Your merchandise, it still has its cost

Oh Sam thank you for, help with New Orleans
But, there are still some places you should come clean
Before we say that you're okay

I want you to think what my family would pay
Think how we're spending today
At Walmart the stuff is so cheap
'Cause it's made in Cathay

Sam's Chinese Imports are here to stay [repeat and fade]

Good job, and congratulations on being the first author to post a parody of that OS on AmIRight!

Sam's products are well and truly entrenched in Aussie stores Steve - a friend of mine lost his pottery business coz he couldn't compete - and that deficit means a collapse in the US dollar won't happen overnight, but it will happen - 555
