karen jonason Origins: Don't Fence Me In (Cole Porter) (38) Lyr Add: THE WTO SONG (DON'T FENCE ME IN - PARODY) 15 May 01

The Seattle version is as follows, called THE WTO SONG. The second verse was written by my choir leader to make it relevant to the UK:

Oh give me land lots of land lots of cash and lots of power
Don't fence me in
Don't you say I can't pay workers 20 cents an hour
Don't fence me in
I think it's cute to pollute and so if your nation
Bans my toxic product without compensation
I can turn and sue you for expropriation
Don't fence me in

Just turn me loose don't you question an investments that I make in any land
Don't introduce any laws I have to follow but the laws they call supply and demand
The world's a big casino and I want to play so
Leave me here to speculate because I say so
I don't care if it crashes like the peso
Don't fence me in

Oh give me GATS becasue that's what I need for full control
Don't fence me in
I'll be made if I can trade all the services you've sold
Don't fence me in
I want your trains and your drains and privatisation
Of health care, of prisons and of education
It's all in the cause of globalisation
Don't fence me in

Double you tee oh, these 3 letters spell unfettered trade and ought to be your pride
When folks say no to your decisions your can tell them that it really isn't there's to decide
So hand me command just the way I've stated
I can make your job a lot less complicated
Don't you think democracy is overrated
Don't fence me in
