Fairtrade rap.
Uh! uh! Fairtrade
Put your hands in the air if you love Fairtrade
Farmers working in the field with their big heavy spades.
Uh! uh! Fairtrade
Bananas, coffee beans, you name it I dig it
but 12 hours in the field, NO PAY that’s what I don’t dig
I wake up everyday tryna get my kids to school
But a  4 am start though that’s not cool
Uh! Uh! Fairtrade.
Business men tryna make amends for small pay
But 70 cents don’t cover me for the day
Uh! Uh! Fairtrade
Fairtrade chocolate is very yummy
I like it in my tummy
Fairtrade cotton
I like it on my bottom
Uh! Uh! Fairtrade
So put your hands up for farmers to get FAIR pay
I hope you enjoy our Fairtrade rap today
Fairtrade, Fairtrade All the way!
Yeah!
So upgrade to Fairtrade today!
