Lyrics

AMERICAN DREAM

Yeah, Yankee doodle, Yankee doodle day
Yeah, Yankee doodle, in the USA

Momma’s in the kitchen cooking at the stove
Daddy’s screaming at the TV
Sister’s sitting pretty talking on the phone
Lil’ brother’s on his PS3
Happy Thanksgiving, let’s eat the bird
First somebody mention the Lord
Momma turn the TV up before you sit down
Daddy likes to hear every score

American Idol, Super Bowl Game
Dancing with the Hollywood stars
Preachers on the TV saving my soul
While I worship in my favorite bar
Someone change the channel, Bubba’s on nine
Sayin’ Jesus helped him beat the other team
Like God’s up there in heaven doin’ a little bettin’
And he’s backing the American Dream
Yeah, yeah he’s backing the American Dream

Nothing could be finer than American designers
It’s a pure and simple advertising truth
Bet your bottom dollar gonna pay someone to holler
‘Bout our mission to the moon and Babe Ruth
Nobody can build a bomb the way that we can build ‘em
There’s a body count dispelling any doubt
Immigrants and sinners – here we all can be a winner
Hell, we even let the gay folks out

Yeah, Yankee doodle, Yankee doodle day
Yeah, Yankee doodle, in the USA

Being on the top somebody always takes a shot
But so far nobody has taken us down
Might be China’s future, you can say whatever suits ya
But for now it’s still America’s crown
Cheney was a mad man, Bush a blind fool
No, torture’s not a thing to abide
No, no, I never would defend ‘em
But god can you imagine
If the bastards hadn’t have been on our side

American Idol, Super Bowl Game
Dancing with the Hollywood stars
Preachers on the TV selling Vitamin G
While I worship in my favorite bar
Someone change the channel, Colonel’s on nine
Sayin’ Jesus helped him beat the other team
Like God’s up there in heaven doin’ a little bettin’
And he’s backing the American Dream
Yeah, yeah he’s backing the American Dream

Yeah, Yankee doodle, Yankee doodle day
Yeah, Yankee doodle, in the USA
Yeah, Yankee doodle, Yankee doodle day
Yeah, Yankee doodle, USA – USA – USA
