Simple Minds - The American lyrics

Here comes the shake, the speed-decade wake
I see you wake, shake, fit on those overalls
What do you know about this world anyway

I see a man with an airfield plan
I caught a boy fall out of the sky
What do you know about this world anyway

Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-American
In collective fame
Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-American
Nassau club day
Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-American
Across a curved earth
In collective fame
Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-American
The eventful work-outs
Nassau club days

Here comes the flag
I'm walking in the black

Every time you touch this place it feels like sin
Every time the handshake starts, the face draws thin
What do you know about this world anyway

Here comes the son, the American son
In here the son shines so bright, eyes blind
What do you know about this world anyway

Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-American
In collective fame
Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-American
Nassau club day
Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-American
Across a curved earth
In collective fame
Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-American
The eventful work-outs
Nassau club days

Here comes the flag
Hand-shake
This world
