What's keeping the White House, white
Is it chalk, is it fog, is it fear
Are they staying up most of the night
Sending somebody out for a beer
Is it bedtime for Bonzo, is it time for a change
Is it flavour-free TV dinners
It's a hard thing to take, when they make a mistake
America for beginners
The sound of a bell with a crack
Even the swingers are swinging right
The vigilantes are on their way back
With prime time fight, the good fight
What a start to the day, it starts three times with a K
There's no sponsored hour for sinners
They'll bring back the hot seat, turn up the heat
America for beginners

That's America for, America for beginners
That's America for, America for beginners
That's America for, America for beginners
That's America for beginners

You wear designer jeans after dark
Your shirts are short cut, in satin
But watch out for Central Park
The apartment's in uptown Manhattan
It's a sign of the times
You'd better stay out in front
They've only got time for winners
Just keep living for fun, you son of a gun
In America for beginners

That's America for, America for beginners
That's America for, America for beginners
That's America for, America for beginners
That's America for beginners

Everywhere the stripes and stars
Men in dark suits and unmarked cars
Sipping Jack Daniels in Third World bars
We're close to the edge, as close as we can get
We're as close as we can get
