I can survive the rat race honey
Time is money and money is honey, honey
My megabucks your symmetrical beauty
Together we can serve the nationĂ¢??yeah!

The quality of life filled us all with pride
America
And as I watched I just cried and cried
How I love America

I will buy you rich perfumes
And we will eat the finest foods
A mansion in New England
A silver dollar for every child
Where everybody has got their price
They'll sustain our way of life
You and I will fly to Rio
I'll make you feel like a millionaire

I can survive the rat race honey
Time is money and money is honey, honey
My megabucks your symmetrical beauty
Together we can serve the nation - yeah!

The quality of life filled us all with pride
America
And as I watched I just cried and cried
How I love America

West is best and might is right
And with our allies - fight the good fight
A first class, five star enterprise
Now everybody's got to compromise
My moral code's on overload
Liberty still takes its toll
Take a look at the losers wasting in the bars
Where they cut their losses!

I can survive the rat race honey
Time is money, and money is honey, honey
My megabucks your symmetrical beauty
Together we can serve the nationĂ¢??yeah!

The quality of life filled us all with pride
America
And as I watched I just cried and cried
How I love America

There were fireworks in the Gulf
There was champagne at home - How I love America
But showbiz and Hollywood still shouted out - America
