<poem>

+
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
