Alright, 1, 2; 1, 2, 3.
Late last night I was watchin' the tube
When I saw the most incredible thing
They built a new mechanical man
Looked just like a human being.
I started to become terrified,
Good God it was makin' me sick
And then I began to realize
It was no one but Tricky Dick.

Yes, it was Tricky Dicky from Yorba Linda
Hip hip hip hurrah.
Tricky Dicky from Yorba Linda
Hip hip hip hurrah.
He walks and he talks, he smiles, he frowns,
He does what a human can,
It was Tricky Dicky from Yorba Linda,
The genuine plastic man.

There is no can't in American
Or so we once could say
But now our boys won't fight no more
To bring us victory.
Where are the mountain majesties
Above the fruited plains ?
Who will come to lead us
In our hour of pain ?

Why it's Tricky Dicky from Yorba Linda
Hip hip hip hurrah.
It's Tricky Dicky from Yorba Linda
Hip hip hip hurrah.
He walks and he talks, he smiles, he frowns,
He does what a human can,
He's Tricky Dicky from Yorba Linda,
The genuine plastic man, hey!

Oh my God, it's terrible
Here in the U.S.A.
The water's polluted, the economy's crashing
And can someone save the day ?
The war keeps going on and on
And the kids won't respect the cops,
It's even said that God is dead,
When will it ever stop ?

Hey, it's Tricky Dicky from Yorba Linda
Hip hip hip hurrah.
Tricky Dicky from Yorba Linda
Hip hip hip hurrah.
He walks, he talks, he smiles, he frowns,
He does what a human can,
He's Tricky Dicky from Yorba Linda,
The genuine plastic man.

And across the garbaged highways
From the oil-drenched plains
Now we'll see a victory,
America shall rise again.
Past the word that the buffalo heard
To the home of the free and the brave,
He's Tricky Dicky from Yorba Linda
Hip hip hip hurrah.

Well, it's Tricky Dicky from Yorba Linda
Hip hip hip hurrah.
Tricky Dicky from Yorba Linda
Hip hip hip hurrah.
He walks, he talks, he smiles, he frowns,
He does what a human can,
He's Tricky Dicky from Yorba Linda,
The genuine plastic man, oh yeah,
He's the genuine plastic man, oh yeah,
He's the genuine plastic man.
