America, your head's too big
Because America
Your belly's too big
And I love you
I just wish you'd stay where you is

Oh.. in America
The land of the free, they said
And of opportunity
In a just and a truthful way
But where the president
Is never black, female or gay
And until that day
You've got nothing to say to me
To help me believe

Oh.. in America
It brought you the hamburger
Oh well America you know where
You can shove your hamburger
And don't you wonder
Why in Estonia they say
Hey you big fat pig
You fat pig, You fat pig

Steely Blue eyes
With no love in them
Scan The World
And a humourless smile
With no warmth within
Greets the world
And I, I have got nothing
To offer you
No-no-no-no-no
Just this heart, deep and true
Which you say you don't need

See with your eyes
Touch with your hands, please
Hear through your ears
Know in your soul, please
For haven't you me with you now?
And I love you
I love you
I love you
And I love you
I love you
I love you

    General CommentI came to this same conclusion upon reaching the line about Sinatra. When I started reading, I got really angry, especially with the hamburger bit (I always assumed this referred to the foreign world and I'm pretty sure Morrissey knows where the hambrger was invented, he's an intelligent man against animal abuse) ....but then I realised it was just a joke, so, well, whatever...nevermind.

    This is an ace song, kind of self-explanatory but it's great to see it can spring so much (politically-charged) discussion.
