We speak in broken American
From the inlands to the shore
From the high planes to the backends
From the mountains to the valley floor

And the streets were not paved with gold
There were men to find a wage
But now we don't know where to go
To work the livelong day

[Chorus]
And now i got to leave this place, oh, oh
Back to my sweet land, oh oh
Now i've got to leave this place, oh, oh
Back to my sweet land

We speak in broken american
From the inlands to the shore
They tell us how the west was won
And what to fight for

And they said they wouldn't send us far
Yeah that most of us could stay
But we speak in broken american
And we got the news today

[Chorus]

Say bye bye, say bye bye (2x)

[Incomprehensible, possibly nonsense words…what do you all think?]

Say bye bye, say bye bye (6x)
Oh, oh, oh (7x)

    Lyric CorrectionSo I
    Sign up
    I lie
    About my age
    And soon
    We're shippin out
    soon
    Be on a plane

    You kissed
    My cheeks
    And my face
    Was on fire
    I run
    Away from the little ones
    Trying not to cry

    Say bye-bye...

    I'm pretty sure that's right. Please add it :D
