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 nationâ??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 nationâ??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
