Livin' In America
An Improvisation by the Big Jerks

 

Start on a dime, though, you guys.

 

I'm gonna sit right down and write myself a letter

I'm gonna sit right down and write myself a letter oh yeah

everything gonna be alright

 

I'm gonna sit right down and write myself a letter

I'm gonna sit right down and write myself a letter

to whom it may concern, things aren't they're not that bad

I'm gonna sit right down and write myself a letter

I'm gonna sit right down and write myself a letter

to whom it may concern, things aren't that bad

 

yeah they wanna tell ya, oh things are gonna get worse

y'know STFU hey pal we're still livin in the greatest

country in the gosh darn world, i tell ya

[i dont like your cheery sunny attitude and your optimism Karl

excuse me, I've been trained in post modern pessimism myself

a deep cynical cynicism]

things aren't that bad

[oh no they're way worse than you think

do you know that we're killing the planet at this very moment?

killing the planet, there's only, i heard there's only 2 years left

before we all just use the whole thing up]

yeah 2012 isn't that the date?

[That's it!]

that's the prohecy, it's not that bad

[oh it's way worse than that Karl

way way way way way

oh no, we're in a recession, no maybe it's a depression

the economy's never been worse, nobody has a job

gasoline costs 17 dollars a gallon

Bush has been in the White House and

everything is exxon and enron, don't you see?

it's hopeless hopeless so hopeless

we're choking the planet to death, doncha just feel it

why do you, uh, it just aches to think about it]

livin' in America, yes we live in America

to whom it may concern we all live in America

and that's not too awfully bad

I for one I'm glad I don't live in China

I hear they got traffic cameras on every street corner

watching pedestrians, I don't think I'd really like that

 

to whom it may concern we're livin' in America

livin' in America America

to whom it may concern livin' in America

in America, America, America, America

to whom it may concern I'm OK livin' in America
