ain't I smart
read newspapers?
no one in america reads newspapers
we listen to talk radio
we pre-record our opinions and play them back for you
sitting in the tv lounge in a truck stop
an american tank runs over a billboard picture of sad ass husein
we all cheer a touchdown
and cnn gives us an instant replay
ain't war grand
support our troops
cut them veterans' benefits
my friend you have too high a vision of america
down among the working poor we are lost
if we was smart we would be rich too
america god how I miss her
taking bets on the end date
