my life is a sham,
i pretend that I'm me.
my life is a sham,
i pretend that I'm free.
wake up, wake up, it's time for me to go
america loves the minstrel show
i don't wanna hurt you, but if I do I'll pay,
i don't wanna hurt you, but if I do I'll pay.
i live in the dark where nothing can ever grow
america loves the minstrel show
it's the thief whose the first to accuse others they steal
it's the fake who claims to always know who is real
and millions all want to bathe in his glow
america loves the minstrel show
america loves the minstrel show
they love me babe, there's a line around the block.
they love me babe, compared to that, what have you got?
wouldn't it be a crime to just let it go?
america loves the minstrel show
they'll never forget me and the funny faces I make,
they'll never forget me and the funny faces I make,
I make them forget that they'll reap what they sow.
america loves the minstrel show
america loves the minstrel show
america loves the minstrel show
