Song Info :  In the U.K., the Factory Act of 1892 outlawed child labour. Behind the modern glass and chrome shopfronts of present-day capitalism are invisible sweatshops stitching the profits together; sweatshops employing child labour.

Note :  Chumbawamba was our Artist Spotlight for Jan. 2004.

Chain, chain, chain
Chain, chain, chain

A cut-price empire
Clean-cut lines
A perfect body
And a dirty mind
The rules of this game
Say we all look the same

Chain, chain, chain
Chain, chain, chain

We'll put a spin on it
We'll take a pencil to it
We'll make a virtue out of
Keeping oh so quiet about it

I don't know, and I don't want to know
I don't know, and I don't want to know
I don't know, and I don't want to know
I don't know, and I don't want to know

Chain, chain, chain
Chain, chain, chain

Talk about child's play
Count the birthdays
A stitch in time says...
Just look the other way
The rules of this game
Say you don't know her name

Chain, chain, chain
Chain, chain, chain

We'll span a hundred years for it
We'll make a killing out of it
And we'll corner the market
By keeping oh so quiet about it

Working for The Gap
Sewing up crap

One up the chimney goes
Two hawks a tray of matches
Three braves the weaving floor
All pray for the life of Four

Five down the pit descends
Six ploughs in fields and meadows
Seven spins the handloom round
Eight lies in the burial ground
