  • I heard you sold the Amazon
    To show the country that you're from
    Is where the world should want to be
    For fine something all people need

    I'm faithless now though we win
    Every time and I don't know how
    'Cause I haven't bought you
    And I haven't sold me
    But the people are dying to, to get on TV

    I heard he lives down a river somewhere
    With six cars and a grizzly bear
    He got eyes, but he can't see
    Well, he talks like an angel but he looks like me

    Oh Lord, what have I become?
    I'm the face of God, I'm my father's son
    I'm not what you think you see
    I know you can't eat leather, but you can't stop me

    Why would you lie, why would you lie about how you feel?
    I've got a mission and my mission is real
    Because you've had your chances, yeah, you've had enough
    I'm gonna burn your house down to spread peace and love
    And it gets me down
    Oh, Lord, how it gets me down

    I heard he lives down a river somewhere
    With six cars and a grizzly bear
    He got eyes, but he can't see
    Well, he talks like an angel but he looks like me
    Oh Lord
    Oh Lord

    I wanna play the beautiful game while I'm in Brazil
    'Cause everybody plays the beautiful game while I'm in Brazil
    'Cause it's all you've ever wanted and it's all that you want still
    Don't you wanna play the beautiful game out in Brazil?
    I wanna play the beautiful game while I'm in Brazil
    'Cause everybody plays the beautiful game out in Brazil
    And it's all you've ever wanted and it's all that you want still
    Don't you wanna play the beautiful game out in Brazil?
    (Oh yeah)

    I heard he lives down a river somewhere
    With six cars and a grizzly bear
    He's got eyes, but he can't see
    Well, he talks like an angel but he looks like me
    I heard he lives down a river somewhere
    With six cars and a grizzly bear
    He got eyes, but he can't see
    Well, he talks like an angel but he looks like me
