Back to North American Scum lyrics

North American Scum

Oh, I don't know, I don't know, oh, where to begin
We are North Americans
And for those of you who still think we're from England
We're not, no

We pit our blades and all trades
Till we think we might die, far from North America
Where the buildings are old
And you might have lots of mines

I hate the feeling when you're lookin' at me that way
'Cause we're North Americans
But if we act all shy, it'll make it okay
Makes it go away

Oh, I don't know, I don't know, oh, where to begin
Well, we're North Americans
But in the end, make the same mistakes all over again
Come on, North America

We are North American scum
We're from North America
We are North American scum
We are North American

New York's the greatest
If you get someone to pay the rent
We're from north America
It's the furthest you can live from the government

Some proud American Christians might disagree
You're in North America
But New York's the only place
Would keep them off the streets

Now we can't have parties like in Spain
Where they go all night
Shut down in North America
Oh, like Berlin where they go another night, alright

You see, I love this place that I've grown to know
Alright, north America
And yeah, I know you wouldn't touch us with a ten foot pole
'Cause we're north Americans

We are North American scum
We are North Americans
We are North American scum
We are North American

Take me back to Statesman
North American scum
Well, we could be where we want to be in
In North America

Where the DJ engraved
Here in North American scum
[Incomprehensible]
Look out, North America
