Lyrics

WE BUILDING NIKE IN SAM YANG
SEWING LEVI IN SAIPAN
AND IN CHINESE LABOUR CAMP
MAKING WORK FOR MANY HAND
SOMEBODY GOTTA KEEP THE PRICES DOWN

YOU KEEP YOUR FAST-SHOES ON IN A WAR-ZONE
AND Y'ASS WELL COVERED IF YOU WANNA GET HOME
SOMEBODY GOTTA KEEP THE PRICES DOWN
SOMEBODY GOTTA KEEP THE PRICES DOWN

THERE'S OIL IN IRAN
AND MORE IN AFGHANISTAN
WE CAN STEAL SOME FROM IRAQ
IF WE CAN SNEAK IN ROUND THE BACK
SOMEBODY GOTTA KEEP THE PRICES DOWN

I DON' MIND FILLING-UP MY CAR IN A WAR-ZONE
LONG AS I CAN DRIVE TO THE BAR AND BACK HOME
SOMEBODY GOTTA KEEP THE PRICES DOWN
SOMEBODY GOTTA KEEP THE PRICES DOWN

I'LL BUY ANYTHING, ANYTHING AT ALL
PLANES HITTING BUILDINGS, WATCH THE BUILDINGS FALL
JUST BUILD ANOTHER SHOPPING MALL
AND KEEP THE PRICES DOWN
SOMEBODY GOTTA KEEP THE PRICES DOWN

AND THE POOR GET POORER AND THE FAT GET FAT
AND I TIP MY BROKER AND I TIP MY HAT
TO KEEPING THE PRICES DOWN
SOMEBODY GOTTA KEEP THE PRICES DOWN
