All the customers! (repeat 7x)
Now put your hands up!
Up at the store, we all showed up
doing our own pro-test.
You used to shop, now we want you to stop
cuz settlements are a crime.
We’ve got the facts, its apartheid,
so don’t pay for Lev’s dia-monds!
He steals the land and builds on it
so you really should boycott him!
