I can survive the rat race honey 
Time is money and money is honey, honey 
My megabucks your symmetrical beauty 
Together we can serve the nationâ??yeah! 

The quality of life filled us all with pride 
America 
And as I watched I just cried and cried 
How I love America 

I will buy you rich perfumes 
And we will eat the finest foods 
A mansion in New England 
A silver dollar for every child 
Where everybody has got their price 
They'll sustain our way of life 
You and I will fly to Rio 
I'll make you feel like a millionaire 

I can survive the rat race honey 
Time is money and money is honey, honey 
My megabucks your symmetrical beauty 
Together we can serve the nation - yeah! 

The quality of life filled us all with pride 
America 
And as I watched I just cried and cried 
How I love America 

West is best and might is right 
And with our allies - fight the good fight 
A first class, five star enterprise 
Now everybody's got to compromise 
My moral code's on overload 
Liberty still takes its toll 
Take a look at the losers wasting in the bars 
Where they cut their losses! 

I can survive the rat race honey 
Time is money, and money is honey, honey 
My megabucks your symmetrical beauty 
Together we can serve the nationâ??yeah! 

The quality of life filled us all with pride 
America 
And as I watched I just cried and cried 
How I love America 

There were fireworks in the Gulf 
There was champagne at home - How I love America 
But showbiz and Hollywood still shouted out - America
