Shopaholic

refr.: Do you really wanna be a shopaholic?
Shopping for more, shopping for more
Do you really wanna be a shopaholic?
Do we always have to score?

Gotta buy the latest smartphone
Gotta buy that brand new car
Gotta buy the biggest drone
Buy them now – they come from far

Let’s all have these children slaving
working in the mines, working in the mines
Let’s all have these children slaving
working in the mines

refr.

Gotta get those cheap ass clothes
Let’s not care about what we pay
Wear it twice and out it goes
Slavery is here to stay

Let’s all have poor people working
sewing in the sweat shops, sewing in the sweat shops
Let’s all have poor people working
sewing in the sweat shops

refr.

Let’s make waste and throw it all away
Plastics, batteries, whatever we use
All of it exported today
We’ve got nothing to lose – Let

kids clean it up on a garbage belt
Slaving every day, slaving every day – Let
kids clean it up on a garbage belt
Slaving every day

refr.
