Hey hey, America
You're some kind of crazy island
You're a place where dreams can grow
And there's history in your mansions

Good fortune in your plants
You're well respected we all know
Hey hey, America
Let's check your children, see what they might know

Hey hey, America
With your salesmanship and your salaries
And your strip malls growin'
And your handguns and your heresies

Don't hold no responsibility
In this land of easy millions
Hey hey, America
It's so thrillin' to see you grow

You're some kind of crazy island
Yeah, you're some kind of crazy island

Well I prefer a sunny day
I just thought maybe I'd live a little bit longer that way
I don't think we should look the same
Or talk the same, yeah I think it's a shame and

Hey hey, America
Across the new horizon
Are you sure that's the way we should go
'Cause I don't know, maybe it's too late for all that and

Hey hey, America
You're wrapped up in your red, white and blue
Hey hey, America
Wrapped up in yourself and your red, white and blue
Hey hey, America
You're some kind of crazy island
Some kind of crazy island

Hey hey, America
You're some kind of crazy island
You're a place where dreams can grow
And there's history in your mansions
Hey hey, America
You're some kind of crazy island
Some kind of crazy island
