It started on the Real World
A hot tub full of hot girls
Grindin' every frat boy and freak

Line up all the Idols
Who paint on phony smiles
Tryin' to ride the fast track for free

Who's the Biggest Loser
I'll bust the biggest boozer
Bigger ratings for mtv

All the sole Survivors
Still stranded on the island
Lying through their teeth for money

So everybody dance, everybody sing!
If you wanna go far, if you wanna be a star
Yeah we can swing it, Cha-Ching
When you take off all your clothes, when you strike a Play Boy pose
If you wanna go far, if you wanna be a star
Then you gotta bring it, Cha-Ching

Everybody stop and stare
Kardashians a** is everywhere
If you missed it watch tmz

Pretending to be lesbians
The Tila's playing all of them
While Flavor Flave get f****d up for free

Guess who's been livin' large
It's mini me the p*** star
Google it I think you'll agree

And all the hotties on the Hills
Just getting rich and making deals
While you and I are watchin' tv

So everybody dance, everybody sing!
If you wanna go far, if you wanna be a star
Yeah we can swing it, Cha-Ching
When you take off all your clothes, when you strike a Play Boy pose
If you wanna go far, if you wanna be a star
Then you gotta bring it, Cha-Ching

The All American Dream
Is getting 15 for free

The All American Dream is so skin deep

It started on the Real World
A hot tub full of hot girls
Grinding every frat boy and freak

So everybody dance, everybody sing!
If you wanna go far, if you wanna be a star
Yeah we can swing it, Cha-Ching
When you take off all your clothes, when you strike a Play Boy pose
If you wanna go far, if you wanna be a star
Then you gotta bring it, Cha-Ching

So everybody dance, everybody sing!
If you wanna go far, if you wanna be a star
Yeah we can swing it, Cha-Ching
When you take off all your clothes, when you strike a Play Boy pose
If you wanna go far, if you wanna be a star
Then you gotta bring it, Cha-Ching

So hurry turn it on, turn it on, get your 15 minutes
It's almost gone, turn it on, turn it on
(Cha-Ching)
So hurry turn it on, turn it on, get your 15 minutes
It's almost gone, turn it on, turn it on
(Cha-Ching)

    I think its about society and the world revolving around everything that's wrong. We think too much on money and fame and are willing to do anything for it at any cost. I applaud hedley for it. Instead of writing another broken love gone wrong song they speak of something that actually has meaning. Who cares if your not a fan of them but just for the sake of the future state of the world read what they're saying.

    This is about the arbitrary nature of "fame" in today's society and the craving people have to get it. It has nothing to do with the you. S. Or Canada specifically, but is rather a commentary on the degradation of North American society as a whole.
    "The All American dream is getting 15 (minutes of fame) for free": A commentary on the sense of entitlement to fame that people have and how they expect things to be handed to them because that's all they ever see in the media; "stars" being given everything they want. It's saying that in general, people want the fast track to success or stardom without doing any of the work.

    Personally I'm not a huge fan of this song; it's something I'll listen to but I won't buy it, and for me it's just not the Hedley I know and love.
    Based on reviews I've heard though, I don't think many people get the meaning behind the lyrics. I don't like them as much because I prefer the meaningful lyrics I can relate to, but I appreciate them for what they are.
    I believe the message in this song is, contrary to popular belief, not pro-American. They're not dropping their Canadian identity- they're creatively reinforcing it. The music style might be a bit of a sell-out, but the lyrics are satirizing American society, not glorifying it. They're criticizing how skin-deep the American dream of riches and fame is. The American dollar bill on the cover isn't "going American," it's there to remind us who the song is about. Canada's got class (;
