Lyrics:

Pack your bags now
Don’t you feel a bit insecure?
It’s natural
Now sell your past
You don’t need it anymore
It’s called Americanization
So if you’ve come here for salvatoin
Please wait in line
We take our time
We take no reservations
Give us a break
We’re heaven in the making

America dear
Religion’s a fast food restaurant here
America dear
God works via satellite here
And we wish you were here
We wish you were here
One more for the numbers dear
We wish you were here
We wish you were here
One more for the numbers dear
How do you like your nation?
You’ve paid full price
Quite an exotic sensation
To be a lonely awkward nation

So pack your bags now
Don’t you feel a bit peculiar?
It’s natural
Now sell your past
You don’t need it anymore
We call it Americanization
So if you’ve come here for salvation
Please wait in line
We take our time
And make no accusation
Give us a break
We’re heaven in the making

America dear
Religion’s a fast food restaurant here
America dear
God works via satellite here

We wish you were here
We wish you were here
One more for the numbers dear
We wish you were here
We wish you were here
One more for the numbers dear
How do you like your nation?
You’ve paid full price
Quite an exotic sensation
To be a lonely awkward nation

And it’s a fucked up situation
A kingdom of bastards, mixed procreation
And our freedom is a masturbation
Feel free to cry
We’ve sold a lie
But if you’ve come here for salvation
Please wait in line
We take our time
And save your aggrevation
Give us a break
We’re heaven in the making

America dear
Religion’s a fast food restaurant here
America dear
God works via satellite here

And we wish you were here
We wish you were here
One more for the numbers dear
We wish you were here
We wish you were here
One more for the numbers here
We wish you were here, oh
One more for the numbers here
We wish you were here, oh
One more for the numbers here

How do you like your nation?
You’ve paid full price
Quite an exotic sensation
To be a lonely awkward nation
