Elvis Costello – Crawling To The U.s.a. lyrics

I thought I would go to the sea and shrink down very tiny
And slide inside the telephone wire that runs under the briny
Till I found there is a way of crawling to the you. S. A.
You had better not go too far
There's one way out, there's only one way
Leave your mother and your father
Crawling to the you. S. A.

Saw it late one night on a secret channel
It's farther on along the tunnel
It's way beyond the final station
That's the one they never mention

You had better not go too far
There's one way out, there's only one way
Leave your mother and your father
Crawling to the you. S. A.

You don't have to pay them that much
You had better bring your lunch
It's undercover, around the houses
Up your skirt and down your trousers

You had better not go too far
There's one way out, there's only one way
Leave your mother and your father
Crawling to the you. S. A.

She said, "I catch you taking liberties and they do not impress me
Attach me to your credit card and then you can undress me
Everybody is on their knees except the Russians and the Chinese

You had better not go too far
There's one way out, there's only one way
Leave your mother and your father
Crawling to the you. S. A.

    Meanings? Pretty obvious isn't it. Anti-American. A well-deserved political criticism by the master of criticism himself. It's not really America though, Mr.Costello. Just a well-disguised cardboard cutout. With lots of guns. And crazy people in charge of all the wrong things. Thank you for thinking of us though. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go back to watching her watch the detectives.
