We're the USA                   

                                                                             See the pyramid there in the aisle;
                                                                             See those naked Arabs in a pile.
                                                                             Just remember, people, all the while,
                                                                             We're the USA.

                                                                             From Indonesia to beyond Algiers,
                                                                             We'll show off our Muslim souvenirs.
                                                                             This reminds me of those Viet Cong ears.
                                                                             We're the USA.

                                                                             Where would you be without us?
                                                                             Maybe we'll invade you, too--and you.

                                                                             We can make the world a better place,
                                                                             Putting evildoers in their place,
                                                                             Or just giving Israel living space.
                                                                             We're the USA.

David Martin

                                                                             To the tune of
Patti Page's "You Belong to Me,"

                                                                             covered by Jo Stafford, The Duprees, Carla Bruni, and many                                                                              others.


                                                                             Hear “We’re the USA” performed in the style of Dean Martin                                                                              by Buelahman.
