  • Winter gettin' colder, summer gettin' warmer
    Tidal wave comin' cross the Mexican border
    Why buy a gallon, it's cheaper by the barrel
    Just don't get busted singin' Christmas carols

    That's us, that's right
    Gotta love this American ride
    Both ends of the ozone burnin'
    Funny how the world keeps turning
    Look ma, no hands
    I love, this American ride
    Gotta love this American ride

    Momma gets her rocks off watchin' Desperate Housewives
    Daddy works his ass off payin' for the good life
    Kids on the YouTube learnin' how to be cool
    Livin' in a cruel world, it pays to be a mean girl

    That's us, that's right
    Gotta love this American ride
    Both ends of the ozone burnin'
    Funny how the world keeps turning
    Look ma, no hands
    I love, this American ride
    Gotta love this American ride

    Poor little infa-Miss America's down
    She gained five pounds and lost her crown
    Quick fix plastic surgical antidote
    Got herself a record deal, can't even sing a note

    Plasma gettin' bigger, Jesus gettin' smaller
    Spill a cup of coffee make a million dollars
    Customs got a thug with an aerosol can
    If the shoe don't fit, the fits gonna hit the shan

    That's us
    That's right
    Gotta love this American ride
    Both ends of the ozone burnin'
    Funny how the world keeps turning
    Hot dog, hot damn
    I love, this American ride
    Gotta love this American ride, oh yeah Writer/s: DAVE PAHANISH, JOE WEST

  • Garrett from Pittsburgh, PaBelieve it or not Dave Pahanish is my cousin. He wrote this song with Joe West, another country singer that he and Dave wrote song together. Dave als wrote "I Will" and "So Do You Believe Me now" that Jimmy Wayne sings. He Moved to Nashville from Pittsburgh a few years ago and it is absolutely rediculous he isnt huge yet but I think he just wants to reamin a singer folk song writer. check out some of his stuff on Youtube just search dave pahanish
