What's Walmart doing with your money?
What's Walmart doing with your hard-earned dough?
What's Walmart doing with your money?
Do you even want to know?

Prices are low down at Walmart,
Prices are low on anything you want to buy,
Prices are low down at Walmart,
Do you ever wonder why?

Remember how it used to be?
You could feed your family
On what just one person made
Now that's ancient history,
Now your job's gone overseas,
What did you get in the trade?

We used to make things in this country,
Once there were labels that said, Made in USA,
We used to make things in this country,
What do you make today?

Check out the labels down at Walmart,
China, Thailand, Indonesia, Viet Nam,
Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras,
Guatemala, Jordan, and Guam.

In places like El Salvador
No one ever asks for more
Than twenty-five cents a day,
Kids in sweatshops, no one cares,
There's no labor unions there,
Organizers get locked away

What do they give you down at Walmart?
What do you have at the end of the day?
What do they give you down at Walmart?
Is it worth the price you pay?

What's Walmart doing with your money?
Greasing the palms while their fingers write the rules?
What's Walmart doing with your money?
Buying themselves a fresh set of tools?

Voting on Election Day
Makes a difference, some folks say,
To me it's all so clear
The votes that really run this land
Happen at the checkout stand
Every day of the year.

What if Walmart never got your money?
What if you never gave them one thin dime?
Maybe they'd do fine without your money,
Maybe it's still worth a try.

Sheet music here.

My recent obsession with unnotated accidentals in Josquin Des Prez's Missa "D'ung aultre amer" is reflected in the melody. It's not all that chromatic as melodies go, but for me it's pretty chromatic.
