Chumbawamba – Unilever lyrics

When you don't want to feed the world
When you just want to feed your bank balance
Wash your guilt away:
Unilever washes whiter!
Soap to clean those dirty hands
And a slap for the people who work the land

Man-made hunger
Soap in our eyes
John West is the Best!
Old soap opera
No soap reality
Legal slave trade
Domestos kills all known truths dead
Soap to wash the darkest stain
Profit covers up the pain
Of a slow, deliberate genocide
And all the dirt you want to hide
Take the black and wash it whiter
Brooke Bond Oxo
Blue Band, Bird's Eye
Lifebuoy, Sunsilk
Persil washes Whiter!
We make whitewash
We sell whitewash
Consume whitewash
Consumed by whitewash

Somewhere in this cycle there's me and you
What are we prepared to do?
