Chorus:
I've got a big american problem
Somethin' that I cannot solve by myself
I've got a big american problem
Somethin' that I need some help from the shelf

Way down in somalia
Where the starving children play
Where our soldiers are sittin' around
Wonderin' just what to do with the day
There are many people in the hills
And the hills have eyes
There is someone that waits for me
Like a spider waits for a fly

Chorus:
I've got a big american problem
Somethin' that I cannot solve by myself
I've got a big american problem
Somethin' that I better take off the shelf

In sarajevo, there's lots of people standin'
Standin' there in the street, waitin' for you
Someone's comin' down to give them the answers
« and if they'd know just what they don't want to do »

Chorus:
I've got a big american problem
Somethin' that I cannot solve by myself
I've got a big american problem
« we'd better take that book from the shelf »

Have you got a big american problem too?
Somethin' that you cannot solve by yourself
Have you got a big american problem too?
Somethin' that you cannot solve by yourself?

I've got a big american problem (x4)
A problem! problem! problem! a problem! a problem!
