Information

Lyrics

America,
Your head's too big
Because America
Your belly's too big
And I love you
I just wish you'd stay where you is

In America
The land of the Free, they said
And of opportunity
In a Just and a Truthful way
But where the President
Is never black, female or gay
And until that day
You've got nothing to say to me
To help me believe

In America
It brought you the hamburger
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"?

Steely-blue eyes
With no love in them
Scan the world

And a humourless smile
With no warmth within
Greets the world

And I,
I have got nothing
To offer you
No no no no no
Just this heart deep and true
Which you say you don't need

See with your eyes
Touch with your hands, please
Hear through your ears
Know in your soul, please

For haven't you me with you now?
And I love you
I love you
I love you

And I love you
I love you
I love you

(We were all innocent)
