Clash – I'm So Bored With The U.S.A. lyrics

Yankee soldier
He wanna shoot some skag
He met it in Cambodia
But now he can't afford a bag
Yankee dollar talk
To the dictators of the world
In fact it's giving orders
An' they can't afford to miss a word
I'm so bored with the you. S. A.
But what can I do?
Yankee detectives
Are always on the tv
Cause killers in America
Work seven days a week
Never mind the stars and stripes
Let's print the Watergate tapes
I'll salute the new wave
And I hope nobody escapes
I'm so bored with the you. S. A.
But what can I do?
Move up Starsky
For the C. I. A.
Suck on Kojak
For the you. S. A.
