Song Meaning
Verse 1
I'm just crazy for profits,
All I ask is business growth.
I'll sell my soul for the company goal
'Cause I like money more than either or both.
Verse 2
For I'm an All-American industrialist merchant man;
I hope you keep your families large.
I'm floating all the junk that I sold you last year
On a sanitation company barge,
Sailing toward the brown horizon.
A very small price we pay;
Dirty air and dirty water,
But it keeps me rich the capitalist way.
Verse 3
Now, don't cut down your consuming
Just to save a little of Earth
We've made our stuff to last long enough
To get you used to things of limited worth.
Verse 4
For I'm an All-American industrialist merchant man;
I hope you keep your families large.
I'm floating all the junk that I sold you last year
On a sanitation company barge,
Sailing toward the brown horizon.
A very small price we pay;
Dirty air and dirty water,
But it keeps me rich the capitalist way.
Verse 5
Now, war is our given duty,
And army sales are steadily up.
As long as she buys more bombs and highs
I can keep a lot of tea in my cup.
Verse 6
For I'm an All-American industrialist merchant man;
I hope you keep your families large.
I'm floating all the junk that I sold you last year
On a sanitation company barge,
Sailing toward the brown horizon.
A very small price we pay;
Dirty air and dirty water,
But it keeps me rich the capitalist way.
