Fellow Americans

It’s lonely there
It’s lonely there
I know I’m not supposed to care
About breaking the rules
Swimming in pools
But I can’t get them out of my mind

No I’m not scared
I’m not scared
To say I’m proud of my fellow Americans
Everybody needs a little love some of the time

Rita was a singer in a band
Had about a half a dozen fans
She took a summer trip to LA

Now Rita got a couple tattoos
A couple hundred thousand hits on YouTube
In the nude
She got a California senator screwed

It’s lonely there
It’s lonely there
I know I’m not supposed to care
About Hollywood news
Silicone boobs
But I can’t get them out of my mind

No I’m not scared
I’m not scared
To say I’m proud of my fellow Americans
Everybody needs a little love some of the time

Well let me tell you about Bernie
See Bernie was a kid on the block
He went from plumbing to king of the stocks
A hardworking honest respectable self-made family man

Now Bernie’s kids are crying the tears
‘Cause Bernie’s doing a hundred fifty years
With a bunk bed husband
Teaching him his first career

It’s lonely there
It’s lonely there
I know I’m not supposed to care
About pimpin’ the jewels
Prison life rules
But I can’t get em out of my mind

No I’m not scared
I’m not scared
To say I’m proud of my fellow Americans
Everybody needs a little love some of the time

Why are they so afraid
Afraid we’re gonna invade
Don’t they know Americans are all alone
Why don’t they understand
We just want to be friends
It’s so obvious, don’t they know

It’s lonely there
It’s lonely there
I know I’m not supposed to care
About breaking the rules
Swimming in pools
But I can’t get them out of my mind

No I’m not scared
I’m not scared
To say I’m proud of my fellow Americans
Everybody needs a little love some of the time

It’s lonely here it’s lonely there
It’s lonely just about everywhere
For people like me and people like you
I can’t get em out of my mind

No I’m not scared
I’m not scared
To say I’m proud of my fellow Americans
Everybody needs a little love some of the time
Some of the time
