Well they look to the east, they look to the west
The third world wonders, which way's the best?
We got freedom, we got soul
We got blue jeans and rock 'n' roll

Man, there ain't no choice, it's better in the U.S.A.
(It's better in the U.S.A.)
You can be what you want, say what you wanna say
(It's better in the U.S.A.)
How can I make you understand, it's better in the U.S.A.?
(It's better in the U.S.A.)

I hear the same propaganda day after day
It's gettin' so hip to knock the U.S.A.
If we're so awful and we're so bad
You oughta check the night life in Leningrad

Man, it ain't even close, it's better in the U.S.A.
(It's better in the U.S.A.)
If you could see behind the curtain life is cold and gray
(It's better in the U.S.A.)
How can I make you understand, it's better in the U.S.A.?
(It's better, it's better)
I think I'll play

Nobody's perfect and change comes slow
It's really up to you which way you wanna go
You can lean to the left and lean to the right
You can stand in the dark, you can stand in the light

Drivin' on the beach on a night in June
Me and my baby in the lover's moon
They're playin' sweet soul music, got it turned up loud
Make me feel so good, make me feel so proud

Man, there ain't no choice, it's better in the U.S.A.
(It's better in the U.S.A.)
Well they'd be movin' here from Moscow if they could only find a way
(It's better in the U.S.A.)
How can I make you understand, it's better in the U.S.A.? Baby, baby
(It's better)

We got the burgers and fries in the U.S.A.
We got the friendly skies in the U.S.A.
We got the beautiful girls in the U.S.A.
Got the beautiful curls in the U.S.A.

We're drivin' beautiful cars in the U.S.A.
We're diggin' movie stars in the U.S.A.
We get to make romance in the U.S.A.
Let the little girl dance in the U.S.A.

It's better, baby, nice sweater, baby
What do you say you and me go for a little drive?
Come on
It's better, it's better, it's better
