I'm looking outside of my window

the view that I see

is a child and mama

and the child is begging for money

tell me why, tell me why

the woman is blind

is she so broke

the kid's dealing crime

it's such a beautiful city,

but the word is burning it down

I go to my room to turn on the TV

I sit myself down

and I start laughing hard

'cause this man he's asking for money

he say "if you send me lots of cash

I'll send you stuff to make you rich fast"

it's such a wonderful country

but the man he's burning it down

yea yea yea yea yea yea

yea yea yea yea yea

it's such a wonderful country

but the man he's burning it down

yea yea yea yea yea yea

yea yea yea yea yea

and it's burning down

and it's called the US of A

One day I'm going to have lots of money

but I'll have to give it up for this rich society

oh please Mr. President will you lend me a future

'cause you'll just get it back

from the little blind woman

with the kid on the corner

and the people full over, doin' crack

yea yea yea yea yea yea

yea yea yea yea yea

it's such a wonderful country

but the man he's burning it down

yea yea yea yea yea yea

yea yea yea yea yea

and it's burning down

and it's called the US of A

I'm walking outside on a sunny day

with no one around

and I wonder what's wrong

then I hear this loud piercing siren

oh my God the bomb has just dropped

and everybody climbed right on top screaming

what a wonderful country

but the man he's burning it down

he's burning it down

yea yea yea yea yea yea

yea yea yea yea yea

it's such a wonderful country

but the man he's burning it down

yea yea yea yea yea yea

yea yea yea yea yea

and it's burning down

and it's called the US of A
