Randy Newman – How To Be Politically Incorrect

Sail Away

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 Bay

Political Science

No one likes us-I don’t know why

We may not be perfect, but heaven knows we try

But all around, even our old friends put us down

Let’s drop the big one and see what happens

We give them money-but are they grateful?

No, they’re spiteful and they’re hateful

They don’t respect us-so let’s surprise them

We’ll drop the big one and pulverize them

Asia’s crowded and Europe’s too old

Africa is far too hot

And Canada’s too cold

And South America stole our name

Let’s drop the big one

There’ll be no one left to blame us

We’ll save Australia

Don’t wanna hurt no kangaroo

We’ll build an All American amusement park there

They got surfin’, too

Boom goes London and boom Paris

More room for you and more room for me

And every city the whole world round

Will just be another American town

Oh, how peaceful it will be

We’ll set everybody free

You’ll wear a Japanese kimono babe

And there’ll be Italian shoes for me

They all hate us anyhow

So let’s drop the big one now

Let’s drop the big one now

Yes we’re morons – it’s plain to see

When there’s nothing left for you

But  it’s the whole Ukraine for me

We get it all because we say so

If you don’t like it, you just have to go

So Boom goes Qaddafi, and boom Bashar,

It’s down with Saddam, and we’re taking out the Czar

Turkey and Saudi, well they’re our friends

We’ll turn Iran into a swimming pool – set up a Shah again,

Don’t know why they’re complainin’ –

Don’t know why no one likes us

When we didn’t do it, it was our best friend ISIS

But when China’s gone there’ll be no one left to fight us

Don’t know why they can’t you see

We’re just tryin’ to set them free –

And make a big happy world for our best democracy…

But they all hate us anyhow – so lets drop the big one now.

Lets drop the big one now.
