I packed my bags - in the land of rags 'Cause I don't believe in them dimmo drags Don't want to vote for the left wing - don't want to vote for the right I gotta have both-to make me fly
Just a whitey from Blighty - heading out west Got my little green card an' my bulletproof vest Goin' to old tube city - where the buzz is the best On down the line (down the line) down the line (down the line)
Well I was born (on the line) an' I was raised (on the line) I was schooled (on the line) an' I was fazed (on the line) An' I was used (on the line) an' I was dazed (on the line) Just had to split (off the line) 'cause I was crazed (off the line)
An' I remember all the good times - me 'n Miller enjoyed Up and down the M1 in some luminous yo-yo toy But the future has to change - and to change I've got to destroy Oh look out Lennon here I come - land ahoy-hoy-hoy
All American Alien Boy All American Alien Boy Don't look down put your feet on the ground don't drown in the big aquarium Don't walk slow - put on a big show - shove your meat down vegetarians Don't get slugged, get mugged, get bugged, or they'll sling you in the jug Shove you under some rug, give you some drug - pull out the plug and then...
And they're telling me this hamburger's cheaper than the other An' this television's cheaper than the other And they're selling me hotdogs cheaper than the other An' these pizzas cheaper than the other And I don't understand all this - I'm just an All American Alien Boy
An' they're telling me rifles are shot in Connecticut They're telling me pistols are shot in Westchester You can get a Saturday Night Special on Flatbush, on the Bowery, or the Bronx
Or on 42nd Street - And I don't understand all this - being an All American Alien Boy I've got sodium nitrate rotting in my guts My head's full of ulcers I got lungs full of butts My heart wants a transplant - it thinks that I'm nuts My logic won't open - my eyes won't shut An' I'm beginning to dig all this - being an All American Alien Boy
And your women are always right (alright) They always know so much more 'Cause the women came from heaven An' the men came outta some store An' they don't know who they are and they don't know what they're for
I'm an All American Alien Boy - look out Mary Tyler Moore All American Alien Boy
