American Way
Lyrics:
Music:

Beneath the bridge there is a tepee
The occupant lives there today
Pulled through the Chinese restaurant next door
Don't care about him liking it that way
Oh, the principals of power
Throw galas every year
Though while he won't survive to the next event
For whom the crowd will surely cheer

And this is the American way
Yeah this is the American way
Just roll the dice, and we come to play
Give us the American way

I could have come from Sweden
But I would have gotten tired
And the struggle for my family's life or death
It keeps all my art inspired
Yes we like to take a gamble
And we love to make a stand
And we worship in the shopping malls
With lotto tickets in our hand

And this is the American way
Yeah this is the American way
Just roll the dice, and we come to play
Give us the American way

Call it a travesty or an empire
But I prefer to call it home
Nomadic tribes of horseman
Are soon to conquer Rome
I said maybe the rules are broken
But tradition's kept alive
There just isn't one America
But manyy little tribes

Yeah and it's the American way
Yeah, it's the American way
All the players have to play and play and play
Give us the American way
I don't care what you say
It's called the American way
Just roll the dice and we come to play
Give us the American way
