"Living in America" as written by and Dan/midnight Hartman....
Teenage pornstars, living for nothing now.
Nightlife baby, Ooo ohaooo.
Look out, shape up, before you get to turn around.
Wake up honey, Ooo ohaooo.

We're not living in America, but we're not sorry.
I knew there was something that we never had, but we don't worry.
No we're not living in America, but we're not sorry.
No we don't care about the world today.
We're not sorry for you.

Pretty as a picture, I'm dancing the night away.
And don't stop baby, Ooo ohaooo.
I learned my way, I'm living for something now.
It's hardcore honey, Ooo ohaooo.

We're not living in America, but we're not sorry.
I knew there was something that we never had, but we don't worry.
No we're not living in America, but we're not sorry.
No we don't care about the world today.
We're not sorry for you.

We're not living in America x4
We're not liviiing!!


We're not living in America, but we're not sorry.
I knew there was something that we never had, but we don't worry.
No we're not living in America, but we're not sorry.
No we don't care about the world today.
We're not sorry for you.

My baby, sweet baby, Ohh baby baby baby baby aahhhh..

    General CommentI think this song is not so much about putting down America, but about bringing Americans back down to earth. Just because you are American does not make you superior to everyone else (the common perception of many Americans).

    "We don't care about the world today" is most likely a play on the ignorance of many Americans. Many Americans are oblivious to the fact that the rest of the world not only does not look up to America, but actually despise America for its foreign policies.

    Just my view.

    NB: Many does not equal most. Just means many.

    General CommentNo, these are the lyrics for "Living in America". "Dance with Me" must be wrong, then.

    General CommentIt's just saying that even though they may not have the American Dream, they don't care.

    My InterpretationI think it's to say to people around her that you don't live in AMERICA. And instead to ''live for something'', they ''live for nothing'' finding their pleasure in pornography, night life and selfish behavior in general (pretty as a picturee). (I knew their were something we never had) meaning that she realize that people are missing something and by ignoring the world (We don't care about the world today) they are not closer to get it and she's not sorry for it (But we're not sorry).
