Lyrics

Mother father that godly mystery
Will you come here and teach me
When the lowest prices hit me
Wal-Mart will it always reach me?
Mother father that godly mystery

Chorus
Back away from the Wal-Mart back away
Back away from that big box back away
It's a union-busting sweat zone - (It's a sweat zone)
Our neighborhood is our home - (our neighborhood's our home)
Back away, back away, back away
Back away, back away, back away
Back up and pray

Brothers and sisters you sexy mysteries
Will you come here and come with me
Someone's judgment day it burns me
And will your power loving lift me?
Brothers and sisters you sexy mysteries

Chorus

Working people and working families
Whether they’re halfway around the world
Or they’re standing right here next to me.
Wal-Mart says you’re losing money
Well, there ain’t no Wal-Mart in New York City
Working people and working families

Chorus
