Simple Minds – The American lyrics

Here comes the shake
The speed-decade wake
I see you wake
Shake
Fit on those overalls
What do you know about this world anyway
I see a man
With an airfield plan
I caught a boy fall out of the sky
What do you know about this world anyway
Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Amer-American
In collective fame
Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Amer-American
Nassau club day
Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Amer-American
Across a curved earth
In collective fame
Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Amer-American
The eventful work-outs
Nassau club days
Here comes the flag
I'm walking in the black

Every time you tough this place
It feels like sin
Every time the handshake starts
The face draws thin
What do you know about this world anyway
Here comes the son
The american son
In here the son shines so bright
Eyes blind
What do you know about this world anyway

Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Amer-American
The eventful workouts
Nassau club days
Here comes the flag
Hand-shake
This world.....
