The Delphi Bankruptcy Jingle

By a United Auto Workers Member

(Sung to the tune of 'Jingle Bells')

Dashing to New York,
With a Brief Case in our hand,
Using the press to spread,
Our story throughout the land.
We have to close our plants
And let our people go,
And find us a Republican judge
Who'll give us all the dough.
Oh, Bankruptcy, Bankruptcy, it's the American way,
We make a dash and steal the cash,
And then we move away, hey!
Overseas, it's just great
The workers get no pay
Oh what fun it is to live in a Republican USA!!!

Now the time is right
To break the middle class
It seems like all their leaders
Are sitting on their ass.
The Congress and the Governor
All like to flap their jaws,
But they would be better off
Holding their breath, then waiting for Santa Claus.
Oh, Bankruptcy, Bankruptcy, it's the American way,
We make a dash and steal the cash,
And then we move away, hey!
Overseas, it's just great
The workers get no pay
Oh what fun it is to live in a Republican USA!!!

This was one of the chants heard at an informational picketing at Delphi.
