Trini Lopez – America lyrics

Oh, let me hear you hand clapping now

I like to be in America
Ok by me in America
Everything's free in America for a small fee in America

Automobile in America
Chromium steel in America
Wire spoke wheel in America
Very big deal in America

I like the city of San Juan
I know a boat you can get on
Everyone there will get big cheers
Everyone there will have moved here

I'll drive my Buick though San Juan if there's a road you can drive on
I'll give my cousins a free ride
How do you fit all of them inside?

Immigrant goes to America
Many hello's in America
Nobody knows in America
Puerto Rico's in America

I like the shores of America
Many close in America
Knobs on the doors in America
Wall to wall floors in America

I like to go back to San Juan
Why don't you shut up and get gone?
I'll bring a tv to San Juan if there's a current to turn on

I like to be in America
Ok by me in America
Everything free in America for a small fee in America

Oh, let me hear everybody now

Everybody now
