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
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 Comment"America your head's too big, Because America, Your belly's too big ... "
    - greed, politically its imperialistic practices, controlling country governments who are supposed to be independent, big belly for profits and sources of cheap raw materials for its big industries.

    "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, ..."
    - trying to be the bastion of democracy to the world, waging wars against those he declare as authoritarian, though history has shown its support to dictatorships which America benefits; democratic though discrimination is still prevalent, in short lip service, propaganda-value democracy, deception, etc.

    "In America, It brought you the hamburger, Well America you know where, You can shove your hamburger ..."
    - can be about vegetarianism, but generally not just hamburgers, it's colonial rule, more on cultural domination, like though there are some countries who are not natural on burgers or any American commodity, the western media, the all-out propaganda machinery dictates people from different societies to "eat hamburgers" or use American goods, as they are marketed as of better quality compared to their local products.

    "And I, I have got nothing, To offer you
    Just this heart deep and true, Which you say you don't need ..."
    - America says "the hell with your hospitality, I need huge profits". or "your warm welcome is good but I need cash"

    "I love you"
    - as America has dominated the world for a long time, and people got used to American culture, system, etc., "I love you" because they have already dug up a deep root to every people, or "I love you" because I don't want you to kill me.
