The Song of Investment Capital Overseas

This song is by Art Bears and appears on the album The World As It Is Today (1981).

Out of town, my work takes me
Out of town
I empty villages
I burn their houses down
I set up factories
Lay out plantations
And bring prosperity to
The poorer nations

The roads and rails
Run like cracks and
Carry me
Upon their backs
