I packed my bags - in the land of rags
Don't want to vote for the left wing - don't want to vote for the right

Got my little green card an' my bulletproof vest
On down the line (down the line) down the line (down the line)
Well I was born (on the line) an' I was raised (on the line)
An' I was used (on the line) an' I was dazed (on the line)

Up and down the M1 in some luminous yo-yo toy
Oh look out Lennon here I come - land ahoy-hoy-hoy
All American Alien Boy All American Alien Boy
Don't walk slow - put on a big show - shove your meat down vegetarians
Shove you under some rug, give you some drug - pull out the plug and then...
And they're telling me this hamburger's cheaper than the other
And they're selling me hotdogs cheaper than the other
And I don't understand all this - I'm just an All American Alien Boy
An' they're telling me rifles are shot in Connecticut
You can get a Saturday Night Special on Flatbush, on the Bowery, or the Bronx
Or on 42nd Street - And I don't understand all this - being an All American Alien Boy
My head's full of ulcers I got lungs full of butts
My logic won't open - my eyes won't shut

They always know so much more
An' the men came outta some store

All American Alien Boy
Ten Bears, Two Bears, Standing Bear, Plenty Bear,
Silver Knife, Spotted Tail, Yellow Hand, Red Cloud,
White Ghost, White Bull, White Thunder, White Hog,
Cochise, Alchise, Roman Nose, Geronimo - hold on a minute - more to go
Low Dog, Red Dog, Yellow Wolf, Low Wolf
My mouth's exploding that's enough of this noise
