At the first sign of the morning light
Old Glory is in the sky
Cross the pond it's afternoon and the Union Jack flies high
We're on our first cup of coffee, we're on our third cup of tea
We can't pretend to live on different planets, you and me
In this collision of worlds, watch the new day dawn on a distant shore
In this collision of worlds, oh you can't sit this out no more

Abbey Road, Route 66, CIA to the MI6, right lane, left lane
Metric, Imperial, pounds, dollars, howdy, cheerio
V8 growl to a V12 scream, Hail to the Chief, well God Save the Queen
Cops, bobbies, tabasco, wasabi, PISTACHIO ICE CREAM!
In this collision of worlds, it's too late you can't stop it now
In this collision of worlds, yeah, find your place and just watch it now, watch it now

Yeah you're a good old boy, well you're at decent bloke
I say it's irony, I say it's a joke
When I look around now I can see
We ain't so different, you and me

Meat and potatoes, bangers and mash
Dollars, pounds, dosh, cash, autobahn to the rising sun
The I10 to the M1, Congress, Parliament, president, the queen
Petrol you say, gasoline now grab your bird and get your girl now
It's a small world
Collision of worlds, watch the new day dawn on a distant shore
In this collision of worlds, no you can't sit this out no more
It's a collision of worlds
It's too late, you can't stop it now
Collision of worlds find your place and watch it now, watch it now

    I'm pretty sure it's just a fun song about usa and england and how we're similar even though our words are different.
