Won't you open up the border
To rivers running green, green, green, green, green
I have kilo loads of plastic
To trade for pumpkins seeds, seeds, seeds, seeds, seeds
I know folks in Wichita as well as Santa Fe
All veterans of the trade
Alright!
Open it up, open it up, open it
Living for the trade
Open it up, open it up, open it
Just living for the trade
Open it up, open it up, open it
Living for the trade
Open it up, open it up, open it
The merry wives of Windsor
I swapped for cans of Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam
While sipping fine darjeeling
With an English man, man, man, man, man
I know folks in Liverpool as well as in Bombay
All veterans of the trade
Alright!
Open it up, open it up, open it
Living for the trade
Open it up, open it up, open it
Just living for the trade
Open it up, open it up, open it
Living for the trade
Open it up, open it up, open it
In a tent on the caravan road you'll find those things you thought were gone
Bartered for jasmine and silk and furs of frozen mastodons
YEAH
I know folks in Wichita as well as in Bombay
All veterans of the trade
Open it up
Opening the border
Open it up, open it up, open it
We're opening the border
(Living for the trade)
Opening the border
Open it up, open it up, open it
We're openinnnnng
(Just living for the trade)
Opening the border
Open it up, open it up, open it
We're opening the border
(Living for the trade)
Opening the border
Open it up, open it up, open it
We're openinnnnng
