American queen is the American dream
American queen is the American dream

She is a Polish girl in America
Tall, tanned, hot blonde called Anya
I asked her "Why would you wanna be a Hollywood wife?"
Because I don't wanna end up living in a dive on Vine
Do anything for a dime
Looking for the golden line

[Chorus]
Hollywood infected your brain
You wanted kissing in the rain
Living in a movie scene
Puking American dreams
I'm obsessed with the mess that's America
I'm obsessed with the mess that's America

A fat security making a plays for me
Soon as I touch down in old L.A.
He said, "OH MY GOD YOU LOOK JUST LIKE SHAKIRA,
NO NO! YOU'RE CATHERINE ZETA"
'Actually, my name's Marina'

Your mind is just like mine
All filled up with things benign
You're looking for the golden line

[Chorus]
Hollywood infected your brain
You wanted kissing in the rain
I've been living in a movie scene
Puking American dreams
I'm obsessed with the mess that's America
I'm obsessed with the mess that's America

American dream is the American queen
American queen is the American dream
Is the American dream

Hollywood infected your brain
You wanted kissing in the rain
I've been living in a movie scene
Puking American dreams
Hollywood infected your brain
You wanted kissing in the rain
I've been living in a movie scene
Puking American dreams
I'm obsessed with the mess that's America
I'm obsessed with the mess that's America
