  • Rubber on my tires making contact with the road
    Sign on the street post tells me which way I should go
    Riding down America Street funny that it's one way
    Riding down from uptown to where the buildings are broken down in decay
    America Street it's right nearby
    Land of the free and the brave
    If we can't work and make some change
    There won't be much of this land left to save
    It's a classic case of misdirection and slight of hand
    We watch while our deficit grows
    What a shame that we can't teach our kids to read
    Makes you wonder where all the tax money goes
    Well America Street it's right nearby
    Land of the free and the brave
    And if we can't work and make some change
    There won't be much of this land left to save
    Won't be much to save
    Excuse me sir pardon me can you spare some change
    Because it's cold and I live outside
    A thoughtful search into my pockets finds enough so he can rocket
    Right up to the bar and enjoy his lie
    America Street it's right nearby
    Land of the free and the brave
    And if we can't work and make some change
    There won't be much of this land left to save
    Won't be much to save
