Lyrics

There's a black man with a black cat Living in a black neighborhood He's got an interstate running through his front yard You know he thinks he's got it so good And there's a woman in the kitchen Cleaning up the evening slop And he looks at her and says, hey, darling I can remember when you could stop a clock Aw, but ain't that America for you and me Ain't that America something to see, baby Ain't that America, home of the free, yeah Little pink houses for you and me Oh, yeah, for you and me

There's a young man in a t-shirt Listening to a rocking, rolling station He's got greasy hair greasy smile He says, Lord, this must be my destination Cause they told me when I was younger Saying, boy, you're gonna be President But just like everything else those old crazy dreams Just kinda came and went Aw, but ain't that America for you and me Ain't that America something to see, baby Ain't that America home of the free, yeah Little pink houses for you and me Oh, built, baby for you and me Well, there's people and more people What do they know, know, know Go to work in some high rise And vacation down at the Gulf of Mexico Ooh, yeah, and there's winners and there's losers But they ain't no big deal Cause the simple man, baby pays the thrills, the bills The pills that kill Aw, but ain't that America for you and me Ain't that America something to see, baby Ain't that America home of the free, yeah Little pink houses for you and me, ooh Ooh, yeah, ain't that America for you and me Ain't that America, hey something to see, baby Ain't that America, oh, the home of the free Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah Little pink houses baby, for you and me Ooh, yeah, ooh, yeah
