"Chocolate Kings" as written by Franco Mussida, Marva Jan Marrow and Mauro Pagani....
When I was born they came to free us
to heal our battle wounds,
with photographs of big fat mama
the chocolate kings arrived
to feed us full of good intentions
and fatten us with pride.
Stars and candybars!
Shirly temple dipped her dimples
in favorite nurcery rhymes;
big mamas love was pure and simple
and gentle dollar signs
sang out lullabies

So sorry,
her superman is losing fans
and I am so sorry
so sorry
They've packed her bags
They've stacked her flags
and we are so sorry

Her supermarket kingdom is falling
hher war machines on sale
no one left to worship the heroes
her tv gods have failed
hope she takes a look in the mirror
while she is on her way home ...

her supermarket kingdom is falling
her war machines on sale
no one left to worship the heroes
her tv gods have failed
so sorry

her superman is losing fans
and i am so sorry
so sorry
they've packed her bags
they've stacked her flags
and we are so sorry

new you and i know big fat mama
she took us for a ride
but musclemen are out of business
the chocolate kings are dying
you don't wanna waste your life for chocolate heaven
you like to stay alive
like to stay alive!

    Song MeaningThe song clearly alludes to the decadence of the U.S.A. The chocolate kings are the American soldiers that came to Italy during the II War World,and are referred as "Chocolate kings" because of their giving chocolate as gift to gain the confidence of the civilians. Big Fat Mama is the American Dream, that is described as no longer important (Her superman is losing fans, her supermarcket kingdom is falling apart) anbd also not a thing woth fighting for (don't wanna waste your life for chocolate heaven).

    SO this is a song about the U.S.A were seen as a symbol of something important in Europe (liberty, freedom and glory, but beacause of his mistakes all the simbologie related to America have falled.
