Here comes the shake 
The speed-decade wake
I see you wake
 Shake 
Fit on those overalls
What do you know about this world anyway
I see a man
With an airfield plan
I caught a boy fall out of the sky
What do you know about this world anyway 
Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Amer-American
In collective fame
Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Amer-American
 Nassau club day
Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Amer-American
 Across a curved earth
In collective fame
Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Amer-American
The eventful work-outs
 Nassau club days
Here comes the flag
I'm walking in the black 
 Every time you tough this place 
It feels like sin
 Every time the handshake starts
The face draws thin
What do you know about this world anyway
Here comes the son
The american son
In here the son shines so bright 
Eyes blind 
What do you know about this world anyway 
Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Amer-American
The eventful workouts
 Nassau club days
Here comes the flag
Hand-shake
This world
