Well nobody wants to burn in hell
But everybody's got a soul to sell
When i was young my mama gave me some advice
She said boy don't you know everybody's got a price?

I make lots of money, I make more money than you
I drive around in my limo that's what I was born to do
And i might like you better if we fought together
If its not to be noted i got somethin' better for ya

Naked pictures, of your mother
Naked pictures of your mother
Naked pictures, of your mother GO!

Solo!

I dropped the bomb on Japan
I was a hostage in Iran
I'm the ugly american
Now, I'm a government man
A government man!

I make lots of money, I make more money than you
I drive around in my limo that's what I was born to do
And i might like you better if we fought together
If its not to be noted i got somethin' better for ya

Naked pictures, of your mother
Naked pictures of your mother
Naked pictures, of your mother GO!

    My Opinion:look--the lyric is clearly 'i might like you better if we fucked together'. if you see them live it's clearly 'fucked' and it's not like tyler/dick has an aversion to using the word anyhow.

    i think that line is also referencing the romeo void song 'never say never' where the singer repeats over and over again 'i might like you better if we slept together.' dick valentine is a pop culture encyclopedia and i have no doubt that this lyric is a riff on the older song.

    General Comment:It might be talking about how Americans care more about sex scandals than real violations of humanity (dropping a bomb on Japan).

    General Comment:Yeah, I know they're all wrong...
    Another reason I'm sure it's "fought" and not "fucked"...
    Isn't it supposed to be his MOM talking to him?

    General Comment:Sigh...
    It's obviously about a person blackmailing a girl to sleep with him.

    "Well nobody wants to burn in hell
    But everybody's got a soul to sell"

    That's pointing to the fact that no one WANTS to do anything wrong, but people will do anything for cash.

    "When i was young my mama gave me some advice
    She said boy don't you know everybody's got a price?"

    His mother taught him from a young age that everyone is exploitable. This is where his mom's dialoge ends.

    "I make lots of money, I make more money than you
    I drive around in my limo that's what I was born to do
    And i might like you better if we fought together
    If its not to be noted i got somethin' better for ya"

    Personally, I think is "I'd like you better if we fucked together" because this guy is obviously a rich asshole and "fought" doesn't make sense in this context. He drives around in his limo looking for people to exploit, showing that he doesn't slink around in the dark. He's proud of what he does cause it makes him powerful.

    "Naked pictures, of your mother
    Naked pictures of your mother
    Naked pictures, of your mother GO!"

    He's blackmailing the person by threatening them with naked pictures of their mother. Now, how would a person get hold of naked pictures of someone's mother?! He said in the first verse: "everybody's got a soul to sell", implying he first paid your mother to pose naked for him, now he's using these pictures to get to you.

    "I dropped the bomb on Japan
    I was a hostage in Iran
    I'm the ugly american
    Now, I'm a government man
    A government man!"

    So now we see where he gets his contacts and money from. He's a CIA or FBI guy that's abusing his power for his own enjoyment. He's a war hero, so you can't get him arrested and he knows it. So now he's blackmailing you with naked pictures so that he can do whatever he wants with you.

    General Comment:he's a politician blackmailing another politician. he even says it in the song:

    "Now, I'm a government man"

    "And i might like you better if we fought together" is him telling another politician that if he "fights" with him, then the pictures don't need to be used. and they might not even be pictures of his mother, but a reference for something no one wants getting out.
