Spacehog – This Is America lyrics

(Royston, Antony, and Chris Langdon)

*In This is America Roy admires his first experience being in New York City, while also writing about the hypocritical lifestyles he saw. It is said that a second consumer warning was made exclusively for Canada because of this song's lyrics.*

The Statue of Liberty lost her virginity to me
Oh yeah
Well I got my rocks off by watching the cops on tv
Oh yeah

I'm feeling needy, cheap, fat, and greedy
Wont' you give me the thing that I need
Well I'm not to blame cause my video game's got my mind
All right

[Chorus:]

Now you've got your thing
You get your crack, cocaine
You put a bullet in your brain
Cause this is America
Yeah this is America

American history is still just a mystery to me
Oh yeah
Well I think that says it all
Watching the junkies fall down on Avenue C

I learned all I know on the Internet
That shows how to build a bomb for a dime
Well the Statue of Liberty lost her virginity to me
And that's just fine

[Chorus:]

Yeah this is America x3

What ever happened to you
What ever happened to me
I think that says it all
Watching the junkies fall
I know it's a very scary life
Oh no, hear the helium go...
Weee......

Well this is America
Yeah this is America
Cause this is America
It's the land of the free
And the home of the brave
