"Oh.. in America
It brought you the hamburger
Oh well America you know where
You can shove your hamburger
And don't you wonder
Why in Estonia they say
Hey you big fat pig
You fat pig, You fat pig
"

Should the person who wrote and sang these lyrics go back to where they came from?

I see this cover for the new Smiths book is by photographer Stephen Wright who said the band were freezing cold when they were taken in the middle of Dec.
I dont know when Steven Wright took the picture but i know Kevin Cummins went back with the band when snow was on the ground. Do you have them mixed up?

The California Son wrote this song years ago when he was at a low point in sales in the USA, so lazy anti-American terrorists like you in estonia or whatever foreign backwards shit hole you are from can keep buying and buying from the mporium uk so he won't have to tour your shit hole countries to get your money, while The California Son is playing basketball, eating jalapeno ranch french fries with extra guac, drinking coffee, and getting a sun tan on the beach in Malibu. Real American things. When was the last time he even played this song live? It was really a jab at places like Pittsburgh and the Midwest. What's ironic is that you foreigners are what keep McDonalds, Burger King, and KFC in business. They haven't made profits in the USA since the 80's. There is a reason why he calls himself THE CALIFORNIA SON. He was born in Moz Angeles dumbass.
