Trade Winds Song Lyrics

Trade Winds Dinner's on the table, just beans but no coffee

Fill up on bread 'cos there's no meat and there's no gravy



Daddy says there's no work no work to do my friend

So come on now my children

Off to bed for the light is fading

I don't believe the trade winds blowing will set you free

I do believe the free trade wind is roaring toward you and me

Clever Chinese fingers busy themselves tonight

Working dawn to dusk sun is setting sun is rising

On your land of milk and honey, yes I know it ain't funny

So take it easy in your Cadillac

I only hope it's built to last

I don't believe the trade wind blowing will set you free

I do believe the trade wind roaring is no more than

An icy breeze for you and me -

Do you remember a time when you called out the names

Of those who never seem to give a damn for your flag

Or for your country you blamed the reds you blamed

The unions you blamed the immigrants and Jews

And you'd better run it by a priest

Cos no one cares and no one's listening -

I do believe - I don't believe the trade winds

Are roaring for you and me
