BAMBOO by Tom Rogers and Ellen Fuller

You take some auto workers You take some auto workers You take some auto workers And don't allow a union

Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh Honda

My owner's cross the water My owner's cross the water My owner's cross the water And buying up Hawaii

Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh Honda

Iacocca, Iacocca. He fell down. Iacocca, Iacocca. He fell down.

We make your Ford Escort We make your Chevy Geo We make your Dodge Shadow It's just a Mitsubishi

Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh Honda

THIS LAND WAS MADE BY JAPANESE (by Karyn

          Klausner, Bob Hirschfeld, Kate
          McCaffrey, Jane Rein'l)

(to the tune of This Land is Your Land)

This land is your land, this land is my land As long this land, is made in Thailand We don't need quotas, for more Toyotas This land was made by Japanese.

As I was driving that superhighway Ten thousand imports were going my way Paid for enjoyment, with unemployment This land was made by Japanese.

Since Hiroshima and Nagasaki Our relations have been less rocky They don't remember Seven December This land was made by Japanese.

They learned our methods, but something's

          rotten

They practiced virtues we have forgotten They call our workers, illit'rate shirkers This land was made by Japanese.

We bought their cameras, transistor radios And then their TV's, cars and stereos, But they won't buy goods made in the U.S. This land was made by Japanese.

They never looked for the union label They claimed their workers were all more able Negotiations? They own the table. This land was made by Japanese.

But in their haste to buy our country They bought cholest'rol, and shortened life

          spans

They bought heart failure, and increased

          cancer

We're paying back the Japanese

This land is your land, this land is my land As long this land, is made in Thailand We don't need quotas, for more Toyotas This land was made by Japanese.
