 Struggling with America? Become a better singer in 30 days with these videos!

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
Smoke on your pipe and put that in

I like to be in America
O.K. by me in America
Everything free in America

For a small fee in America

Buying on credit is so nice

One look at us and they charge twice

I'll have my own washing machine

What will you have, though, to keep clean?

Skyscrapers bloom in America

Cadillacs zoom in America

Industry boom in America

Twelve in a room in America

Lots of new housing with more space

Lots of doors slamming in our face

I'll get a terrace apartment

Better get rid of your accent

Life can be bright in America

If you can fight in America

Life is all right in America

If you're all-white in America.

Here you are free and you have pride

Long as you stay on your own side

Free to be anything you choose

Free to wait tables and shine shoes

Everywhere grime in America
Organized crime in America
Terrible time in America

You forget I'm in America

I think I go back to San Juan

I know a boat you can get on

Everyone there will give big cheer

Everyone there will have moved here
