Supertramp – Breakfast In America lyrics

Take a look at my girlfriend, she's the only one I got
Not much of a girlfriend, never seem to get a lot
Take a jumbo across the water, like to see America
See the girls in California
I'm hoping it's going to come true but there's not a lot I can do
Could we have kippers for breakfast, mummy dear, mummy dear
They got to have 'em in Texas, cos everyone's a millionaire
I'm a winner, I'm a sinner, do you want my autograph?
I'm a loser, what a joker
I'm playing my jokes upon you while there's nothing better to do

Don't you look at my girlfriend (Girlfriend), she's the only one I got
Not much of a girlfriend (Girlfriend), never seem to get a lot (What's she got? Not a lot)
Take a jumbo cross the water, like to see America
See the girls in California
I'm hoping it's going to come true but there's not a lot I can do

    This has to be one of the catchiest songs ever. I had the chance to see Roger Hodgson (co-founder of Supertramp and composer of most of their hits, including this one) live in concert a few times over the past 2 years. I'm more impressed every time, amazingly Roger's voice is perfectly pristine and even sounds better now than on my Supertramp vinyls. When you hear him live, he knocks you off your feet with astounding music and you're hooked for life (trust me, I know! :) Already have plans to see 2 of his shows on the 2013 tour, dates can be found on Roger Hodgson Official Facebook Page.
