  • Lyrics
  • In America you'll get food to eat
    Won't have to run through the jungle
    And scuff up your feet
    You'll just sing about Jesus and drink wine all day
    It's great to be an American

    Ain't no lions or tigers ain't no mamba snake
    Just the sweet watermelon and the buckwheat cake
    Everybody is as happy as a man can be
    Climb aboard little wog sail away with me

    Sail away sail away
    We will cross the mighty ocean into Charleston Bay
    Sail away-sail away
    We will cross the mighty ocean into Charleston Bay

    In America every man is free
    To take care of his home and his family
    You'll be as happy as a monkey in a monkey tree
    You're all gonna be an American

    Sail away sail away
    We will cross the mighty ocean into Charleston Bay
    Sail away-sail away
    We will cross the mighty ocean into Charleston BayWriter/s: RANDY NEWMAN
