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)
