One nation, all peoples, our U.S. of A We travel the world without goin' away Food tells the story each and every day We taste the world's flavor An American gourmet, an American gourmet The Russians have their caviar, beef stroganoff and blini The Japanese they eat it raw, sushi and sashimi The Mexicans eat tacos, burritos, empanadas Jamaicans jerk their chickens and drink pina coladas In Brazil and Argentina, you know it's always beef day In Ecuador they scatter popcorn in their shrimp ceviche Indians love curry, my stomach's not forgotten Bring me dumplings and red cabbage with my sauerbraten One nation, all peoples, our U.S. of A We taste the world's flavor without goin' away We're an American gourmet, an American gourmet Italians mangia pasta, manicotti and pizza pie The British love their fish and chips and their shepherds pie The Greeks they stuff their grape leaves and bake moussaka The French drink their champagne and mange pate de fois gras The Chinese love their egg rolls, fried rice and chow mein They're eatin' babaganoush and couscous down in the Mediterreane Bring me kielbasa, wiener schnitzel, chicken paprika, paella Falaffel and Rijstaffel till they cart me away away away away One nation, all peoples, our U.S. of A We taste the world's flavor without goin' away Now bring it home We go down south to Bama for some black eyed peas and ribs Then we head down East to Maine, with our lobster bibs We spice it up with Texas chili, and New Orleans creole And finish off the 2 pound burgers out in Jackson Hole, now make it light We want a New York City breakfast, bagel schmear with lox We want Virginia ham, Wisconsin cheese, in our lunch box And Mississippi Mud, Georgia Pecan, Shoofly and Key Lime Pie We're gonna wash it down with some of that California wine One nation, all peoples, our U.S. of A We taste the world's flavor without goin' away We're an American gourmet, an American gourmet
