Lyrics

Moving To China
© Jonathan Helfand

I gave 18 years of my sweat and tears to that company
Now the factory's moved overseas. Look how they repay me.
I called my Congressman a bunch,
But he was sleeping off some lobbyist's lunch
Now I don't know what else I can do

I'm Moving To China. I want my job back
There's nothing to keep me 'round here no more
They gave me a pink slip. Shanghai'ed my paycheck.
So I'm Moving To China. I want my job back

I'm tired of playing cat and mouse with that repo man
But when the mortgage company takes my house, I'll be living in this minivan
I'll say, "Good-bye" to CMT, NASCAR and my Liberty
But I won't pay no taxes in the P.R.C.

I'm Moving To China. I want my job back
There's nothing to keep me 'round here no more
They gave me a pink slip. Shanghai'ed my paycheck.
So I'm Moving To China. I want my job back

I'll like Kung-Fu flicks. I Love their beer.
I think their music's just a little weird
I'll eat Lo Mein and Mu Shu Pork
If I can sell them each a fork
There's a billion people there
I could be a millionaire

I'm Moving To China. I want my job back
There's nothing to keep me 'round here no more
They gave me a pink slip. Shanghai'ed my paycheck.
So I'm Moving To China. I want my job back
I'm Moving To China. To get my job back
I'm Moving To China.
