I'm So Bored With The U.S.A.



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 dictator of the world
In fact it's giving orders
An' they can't afford to miss a word

I'm so bored with the U...S...A...
I'm so bored with the U...S...A...
But what can I do ?

Yankee detectives
Are always on the T.V.
'Cos killers in America
Work seven days a week

Never mind the stars and stripes
Let's play the Watergate Tapes
I'll salute the New Wave
And I hope nobody escapes

I'm so bored with the U...S...A...
I'm so bored with the U...S...A...
But what can I do ?

I'm so bored with the U...S...A...
I'm so bored with the U...S...A...
But what can I do ?

I'm so bored with the U...S...A...
I'm so bored with the U...S...A...
I'm so bored with the U...S...A...
But what can I do ?

Move up Starsky
For the C.I.A.
Suck on Kojak
For the U.S.A.
