  • American queen is the American dream
    American queen is the American dream

    She is a Polish girl in America
    Tall, tanned hot blonde called Anya
    I asked her 'Why would you wanna be a Hollywood wife?'
    'Because I don't want to end up living in a dive on Vine'
    I'll do anything for a dime
    Looking for the golden lie

    Hollywood infected your brain
    You wanted kissing in the rain
    Oh oh, Living in a movie scene
    Puking American dreams
    Oh oh, I'm obsessed with the mess that's America
    I'm obsessed with the mess that's America

    I fight security making plays for me
    As soon as I touch down in old LA, he said,

    Oh my god, you look just like Shakira
    No no, you're Catherine Zeta
    Actually, my name's Marina

    Your mind is just like mine
    All filled up with things benign
    You're looking for the golden lie

    Hollywood infected your brain
    You wanted kissing in the rain
    Oh oh, I've been living in a movie scene
    Puking American dreams
    Oh oh, I'm obsessed with the mess that's America
    I'm obsessed with the mess that's America

    American dream is the American queen
    American queen is the American dream
    Is the American dream
    Hollywood infected your brain
    You wanted kissing in the rain
    Oh oh, I'm living in a movie scene
    Puking American dreams
    Hollywood infected your brain
    You wanna kissing in the rain
    Oh oh, I'm living in a movie scene
    Puking American dreams
    Oh oh, I'm obsessed with the mess that's America
    I'm obsessed with the mess that's America Writer/s: Marina Lambrini Diamandis
