Full Lyrics

I’ma up at Taichung, now I’m down in Taipei
Right next to the 101, land of sexy Tai Mei’s
Hop the train to Chunghsiao, coz I got my yo-yo ka
Take it anywhere, MRT take me everywhere

I was born in free Taiwan, not commie mainland
A place called Formosa, not to be confused with Thailand
We’re known as the ROC, across the Strait that’s PRC
There they got no vote, over here it be democracy

Cruising down Xinyi, Kymco moto che
Speeding so I feel the wind, *&%$ this humid weather, huh
Me, I’m up in Linkou, home of that boy Jay Chou
Rap star. Movie star. You know he played Kato?

Pull up to the Hi-Life, outside sipping Taiwan Beers
Sevens and Family Marts, man we got them everywhere
Night market, bright lights, stinky tofu got me queasy
You can tell by the smell that I am most definitely from

In Taiwan, the place where your gadgets came from
Inside will surprise you, all made in Taiwan
Animators will shame you
There’s nothing you can do
We’re made in Taiwan Taiwan Taiwan

You can catch me in Kaohsiung with Manny at a Rhinos game
He’s here and off the dope, hitting homers out the stadium
You should know I bleed green, but I ain’t DPP though
Hell, we’re not China and we’ll fight the CCP, yo

Welcome to the sweltering pot, Kending is where we go to rock
The satirical, lyrical NMA here ‘to mock
Obama, Tiger Woods, Charlie Sheen, we make ‘em nervous
Simpsons, Jon Stewart, Conan, they all heard of us

One of twenty-three mil, and proving we can make it
1 point 3 bill there and they all they do is fake *&%$
Me, I got my Giant, yeah my ride is Taiwan Made
Dodge a cab, dodge a bus, holla back, I ain’t afraid

Chillin’ with my parents playin’ 50-dolla’ Mahjong
They dunno know I let them win. I be sipping oolong.
Chinese-Taipei? *&%$ that. You got it all wrong
Taiwan independence, yo, I’m from Taichung

In Taiwan, the place where your gadgets came from
Inside will surprise you, all made in Taiwan
Animators will shame you
There’s nothing you can do
We’re made in Taiwan Taiwan Taiwan

Taiwan Tai Mei, at the door they never have to pay
Fillin dance floors, ladies night every Wednesday
Girls in Dong Chu, act like they don’t know you
Unless you got a table booked and some Johnnie Walker …Blue

Fake lashes, done hair. You can find them everywhere.
Too many, too little time, life’s not fair
The city that I live in is a city of skin
Hot girls barely clothed, this city’s filled with them

But xiaojie’s on a heart trip, now she got her phone out
WeChat, What’s App, Facebook, LINE and Skout
Taiwan Tai Mei, I’m their biggest fan
Just don’t tell her that you’re down for one night stand

Didn’t even plan for a girlfriend but now you got a wife
Should have stayed home, son. 20-20 hindsight
Being hitched got you feeling for that pick-me-up
Talk to that girl man. She’ll slip you some betel nut

In Taiwan, the place where your gadgets came from
Inside will surprise you, all made in Taiwan
Animators will shame you
There’s nothing you can do
We’re made in Taiwan Taiwan Taiwan

Hands up for the girls in Taipei City
Long legs stiletto heels all looking pretty
No other girls in the world can compare
Glow sticks in the air, everybody say yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

In Taiwan, the place where your gadgets came from
Inside will surprise you, all made in Taiwan
Animators will shame you
There’s nothing you can do
We’re made in Taiwan Taiwan Taiwan
NEXT ON TOMONEWS
Popocatepetl spews ash; airlines suspend flights to Mexico City
