Old McDonald's

Old McDonald’s had a plan, e-aye-e-aye-o
To peddle crap in every land, e-aye-e-aye-o
With some French fries here and a milkshake there
Here a Mac, there a Mac, everywhere a Big Mac
Old McDonald’s had a plan, e-aye-e-aye-o

Old McDonald’s went to court, e-aye-e-aye-o
To try to stop the critics’ talk, e-aye-e-aye-o
With one threat here and another one there
Here a writ, there a writ, everywhere a libel writ
Old McDonald’s had a plan, e-aye-e-aye-o

Old McDonald’s “never has”, e-aye-e-aye-o
“Exploited children through its ads”, e-aye-e-aye-o
With a free toy here and a Happy Meal there
Here a clown, there a fad, everywhere another ad
Old McDonald’s had a plan, e-aye-e-aye-o

Old McDonald’s would not say, e-aye-e-aye-o
The true costs all the creatures pay, e-aye-e-aye-o
With cruelty here and suffering there
Here the pain, there the harm, every day down on the farm
Old McDonald’s had a plan, e-aye-e-aye-o

Old McDonald’s, it emerged, e-aye-e-aye-o
Pay low wages, quite absurd, e-aye-e-aye-o
With profits here and the workers there
“Here’s the deal, there’s your cut, we pay only monkey-nuts”
Old McDonald’s had a plan, e-aye-e-aye-o

Old McDonald’s, there’s no doubt, e-aye-e-aye-o
The international litter lout, e-aye-e-aye-o
With a wrapper here and a carton there
Here a bag, tossed away, millions of them every day
Old McDonald’s had a plan, e-aye-e-aye-o

Old McDonald’s could not prove, e-aye-e-aye-o
The nutritional value of their food, e-aye-e-aye-o
With additives here and saturates there
Here the salt, there the fat, everywhere a heart attack
Old McDonald’s had a plan, e-aye-e-aye-o

Old McDonald’s lost the case, e-aye-e-aye-o
Walked away with egg on face, e-aye-e-aye-o
With a “So what?!” here and another one there
Do they mind? They don’t care, as long as we keep eating there
Old McDonald’s had a plan, e-aye-e-aye-o

Make McDonald’s pay the price, e-aye-e-aye-o
For acting like the Anti-Christ, e-aye-e-aye-o
With a boycott here and a boycott there
Kill the clown, stay away, learn to eat another way
Make McDonald’s pay the price
E-aye-e-aye-o
