Original Song Title:
Parody Song Title:
Only Philippine town I've ever heard
Manila, Manila, Manila...
All the Chuck Norris flicks: Asian world: shooting site, preferred 
Manila, Manila, Manila....
I've folders of folded manila
The documents inside
File cabinet, abide
Best envelopes: made of manila
So strong, the contents bound
They get here safe and sound
Fiber's rope can resist salt water
Present bought: nice, strong bag for your daughter
Keep using, we oughter': Manila!
The most versatile fiber from Third World 
 "Missing In Action", e. g., and many other movies by Norris and others, supposedly set in Vietnam, used the Philipines due to its similar terrain and low labor costs, not to mention a government and people more sympathetic to showing Norris going up against the Viet Cong and kicking their rices.
 (SKIP THIS IF YOU LIKE) Intended something very lightweight (hehe) as a counterpart to the week's "heavy" parodies and research, but can't resist pointing out that "By the 1960s, the (Philippines') economy was regarded as the second largest in Asia, next to Japan. However, the leadership of Ferdinand Marcos would prove disastrous, by transforming the (free) market economy into a centrally-planned economy." With Marcos gone, the country has opened up somewhat to a "mixed economy", but still, "The ... income for 45% of the population of the Philippines is less than US $2.00 a day." Oh, the wonders of a centrally-planned economy! ... How will *you* live on $2.00/day as our Government continues down that path? ... sorry, it was supposed to be a funny song.
