Old McDonald’s Farm 21st Century Style

 

McDonald’s is a burger chain,

ee-ii-ee-ii-oo.

And at this burger chain, they’ve sold

over 8 billion cardboard burgers here

With minimum wage workers there

and Styrofoam containers polluting everywhere,

ee-ii-ee-ii-oo.

Small farmers were replaced with corporate farms

ee-ii-ee-ii-oo.

and on these corporate farms they have

genetically altered seeds here

and steroid injected cows there

and pesticides everywhere

ee-ii-ee-ii-oo.

Wal-Mart is your one stop Super Store

ee-ii-ee-ii-oo.

and at this Super Store they have

low paid red vested associates here

with aisles of sweatshop products there

putting mom & pop stores out of business everywhere

ee-ii-ee-ii-oo.

Now it’s Amazon.com, Starbucks, and Home Depot

No more independent bookstores here

Or corner coffee shops there

Gone are neighborhood hardware stores everywhere

ee-ii-ee-ii-oo.

All went according to corporate plans

Workers were brutalized and downsized here

Consumers were hypnotized and dogmatized there

And the public was carbonized and homogenized everywhere

ee-ii-ee-ii-oo.

Now monopolies own the world

And we’re fucked fucked here

And fucked fucked there

And fucked fucked everywhere

ee-ii-ee-ii-oo.
