Stars and stripes keep you warm at night
Keep those evil empires from your door
Union Jack swept across your back
It's lost some of the strength it had before
Families of your men can't be ignored

Land of greed becoming so obscene
Chance to have a history to tell
Fairytale, a nation up for sale
Selling San Francisco, oh, so well
Put your bullets down, you may as well

The ground on which you stand
Not owned by any man
Oh, this fragile peace

So close, your weary eyes
That old dramatic prize
It never can be reached, it never can be
Oh, tell me that you love me

The stars and stripes, oh, keep you warm at night
Keep those evil empires from your door
Fairytale, a nation up for sale
Families of your men can't be ignored
Put your bullets down, now I implore

The ground on which you stand
Not owned by any man
Oh, this fragile peace

So close, your weary eyes
That old dramatic prize
Never can be reached
It never can be reached
It never can be reached, can be reached

Stars and stripes keep you warm at night
Keep those evil empires from your door
