Well, they look to the east, they look to the west
We got freedom, we got soul

It's better in the U.S.A. (It's better in the U.S.A.)
Say what you want to say (It's better in the U.S.A.)
How can I make you understand
I hear the same propaganda, day after day

You oughta check the nightlife in Leningrad
It's better in the U.S.A. (It's better in the U.S.A.)
If you could see behind the curtain
How can I make you understand

It's really up to you which way you want to go
You can stand in the dark, you can stand in the light
Drivin' on the beach on a night in June
We're playin' sweet soul music, got it turned up loud

It's better in the U.S.A. (It's better in the U.S.A.)
If they could only find a way (It's better in the U.S.A.)
How can I make you understand
We got burgers and fries (In the U.S.A.)

They got the beautiful curls (In the U.S.A.)
We're diggin' movie stars (In the U.S.A.)
We get to make romance (In the U.S.A.)
It's better baby. Nice sweater, baby
Come on
