Lyrics for the Times — Political Science

Somehow Randy Newman seems still relevant for today.

No one likes us
I don’t know why
We may not be perfect
But heaven knows we try
But all around
Even our old friends put us down
Let’s drop the big one
And see what happens
We give them money
But are they grateful
No, they’re spiteful
And they’re hateful
They don’t respect us
So let’s surprise them
We’ll drop the big one
And pulverize them

Asia’s crowded
And Europe’s too old
Africa’s far too hot
And Canada’s too cold
And South America stole our name
Let’s drop the big one
There’ll be no one left to blame us
We’ll save Australia
Don’t want to hurt no kangaroo
We’ll build an all American amusement park there
They’ve got surfing too

Boom goes London
Boom Paree
More room for you and more room for me
And every city
The whole world round
Will just be another American town
Oh how peaceful it will be
We’ll set everybody free
You’ll wear a Japanese kimono
Be Italian shoes for me

They all hate us anyhow
So let’s drop the big one now
Let’s drop the big one now
