Winters getting colder, Summer gettin' warmer
Tidal wave comin' cross the Mexican border
Why buy a gallon it's cheaper by the barrel
Just don't get busted singing Christmas carols

[[Chorus]]
That's us, that's right
Gotta love this American ride
Both ends of the o-zone burnin'
Funny how the world keeps turnin'
Look Ma, no hands
I love this American Ride
Gotta love this American Ride

Mama gets her rocks off watchin' desperate housewives
Daddy works his can off payin' for the good life
Kids on the you tube learnin' how to be cool
Livin' in a cruel world, pays to be a mean girl

[[Chorus]]
That's us, that's right
Gotta love this American ride
Both ends of the o-zone burnin'
Funny how the world keeps turnin'
Look Ma, no hands
I love this American Ride
Gotta love this American Ride

Poor little infamous, America's town.
She gained five pounds and lost her crown.
Quick fix plastic surgical antidote.
Got herself a record deal, can't even sing a note

Plasma gettin' bigger, Jesus gettin smaller.
Spill a cup of coffee, make a million dollars.
Customs caught a thug with an aerosol can.
If the shoe don't fit, the fits gonna hit the shan.

[[Chorus]]
That's us, that's right
Gotta love this American ride.
Both ends of the ozone burnin.
Funny how the world keeps turnin.
Hot dog, Hot damn.
I love this American ride.
Gotta love this American ride.

Oh yeah,
Na na na na na na na na...

    Basically the song is saying that america has become a roller coaster of political correctness. The standards for what is right and wrong go up and down in a case by case situation. Basically if a does d to b then he will get in trouble unless c happens as well.

    This song is basically saying that everything has to be appropriate and we have to be "politically correct". Also it says how you can sue for anything and how much being bad gets you. It seriously calls out all of the bullsh! T that's happening today. He has balls for writing a song like this. I love it. Proud to be an american
