Sail Away

Randy Newman - Political Science

An appropriate song for today.


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 
Lets 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 
And there’ll be Italian shoes for me  

They all hate us anyhow  
So lets drop the big one now 
Let’s drop the big one now
