America, How Could You?

Verse
All along I was thinking
Things would be OK.
Truth and justice and common sense
Would surely carry the day.
You know what happened.
Didn’t turn out that way.
People don’t know what to think;
Nobody knows what to say.

Chorus
America, how could you?
You can do better than this.
Shame on you, America,
for scaring us out of our wits.
Our enemies think we’re all idiots
and our friends are calling it quits.
Serves you right, America,
if you get yourself blown to bits.

Verse
The people wanted a leader
who was confident and strong.
It didn’t really matter
if he was right or if he was wrong
He knew they were unhappy
and he promised to make them feel great,
and filled their heads full of nonsense,
and their hearts full of hate

Repeat Chorus

Verse
I wish I was an immigrant
so I could go back home.
I feel my life is in danger
here where the buffalo roam.
I’m scared of being trampled
by hysterical thundering herds.
This time we’ve made one helluva mess.
When will we ever learn.

Repeat Chorus
