Santana (Anita):
Puerto Rico
My heart's devotion
Let it sink back in the ocean
Always the hurricanes blowing
Always the population growing
And the money owing
And the sunlight streaming
And the natives steaming
I like the island Manhattan

Tina (Rosalia):
I know you do

Santana (Anita):
Smoke on your pipe
And put that in!

Girls:
I like to be in America
Okay by me in America
Everything free in America

Puck (Bernardo):
For a small fee in America

Santana:
Buying on credit is so nice

Puck:
One look at us and they charge twice

Tina:
I have my own washing machine

Rory (Indio):
What will you have not to keep clean?

Tina:
Skyscrapers bloom in America
Cadillacs zoom in America
Industry boom in America

Boys:
Twelve in a room in America

Santana:
Lots of new housing with more space

Puck:
Lots of doors slamming in our face

Tina:
I'll get a terrace apartment

Puck:
Better get rid of your accent

Tina:
Life can be bright in America

Boys:
If you can fight in America

Girls:
Life is all right in America

Boys:
If you're a white in America

Everyone:
Lalala America
America
Lalala America
America

Girls:
Here you are free and you have pride

Boys:
Long as you stay on your own side

Girls:
Free to be anything you choose

Boys:
Free to wait tables and shine shoes

Girls:
I like to be in America
Okay by me in America
Everything free in America

Puck:
For a small fee in America

Girls:
I like to be in America
Okay by me in America
Everything free in America

Puck with Boys:
For a small fee in America

Everyone:
Lalala America
Lalala America
Lalala America
Lalala Americaaaa
