I Miss America

I Miss America

I think I rather be in New York City
Where at least the cabbies notice you
(Even if it?s only half the time)
I think I rather be in California
Where no one notices anyone
(It?s OK since it?s the norm)

But I miss America

I think I?d rather be in Delhi, India
Maybe I?d look good in a saari
(And the people seem so nice)

I think I?d be Australia
I?d just wear lots of sun-creen
(No ozone? Hey, at least it?s peaceful, but)

I miss America
(I watch the news and think it?s missing me)
I miss America
(I only get what?s ss seen on TV)
I miss America
I miss America

I think I?d rather be in Pensacola
Even in the Florida hurricanes
(You?re safe with the Presbyterians there)
I think I?d rather be in Ponca City
Oklahoma is OK!
(Besides, I know someone from there)

I think I?d rather be in Venice,Italy
They?re cleaning the canals there
(Even though they?re sinking in the lagoon)

I think I?d rather be in South Africa
Maybe join the Green Peace
(And meet Nelson Mandela, but)

I miss America
(I watch the news and think it?s missing me)
I miss America
(I only get what?s As seen on TV)
I miss America
I miss America

I look around and I watch the sun go down
Over Wolfsburg
And still I can?t find one good thing
About Wolfsburg

I miss America
I miss America
(I think I?d rather be in NYC)
I miss America
(I think I?d rather be in CA)

I miss America
(Or, FL, even Flint, MI, Paula,s Bethlehem)
I miss America
(Anywhere but here)
I miss America
I miss America
I miss America
