The Market Song

The Market Song
Tune: My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean

Verse 1

Consumers buy goods from producers.
Consumers buy services, too.
Consumers buy things from producers,
Then use them; yes, that's what they do.

Consumers! Consumers!
They pay the producers for what they use.
Consumers! Consumers!
They pay for the things that they use.

Verse 2

Producers make goods from resources.
Producers make services, too
Producers make things for consumers.
Then sell them; yes, that's what they do.

Producers! Producers!
They make things by using resources.
Producers! Producers!
They make things and sell them to use.

Verse 3

Markets are to buy and sell things.
Markets are where we exchange.
We exchange as we buy and sell things.
Producers, consumers exchange.

Markets! Oh, Markets!
Oh, Markets are where we exchange, exchange.
Markets! Oh, Markets!
Producers, consumers exchange.
