LCD Soundsystem - North American Scum Lyrics

Oh oh oh
oh i don't know, i don't know, oh, where to begin
we are north americans
and for those of you who still think we're from england
we're not, no.
we build our planes and on trains till we think we might die,
far from North America,
where the buildings are old and you might have lots of mimes.
aha, oh, oh.
i hate the feelin' when you're looking at me that way
cause we're north americans
but if we act all shy, it'll make it ok
makes it go away.

oh I don't know, I don't know, oh, where to begin
when we're north american
but in the end-make the same mistakes all over again
come on north americans

ah-ha! we are north american scum
ah-ha! we're from north america (shake shake shake)

and all the kids all the kids don't wanna make a scene
here in north america
when all your kids get to read it in your magazines
we don't have those
so where's the love where's the love where's the love where's the love where's the love tonight?
but there's no love man. there's no love when the kids are uptight
so throw a party till the cops come in and bust it up
let's go north americans
oh you were planning it i didn't mean to interrupt
sorry
i did it once and my parents got pretty upset
freaked out in north america!
but then i said the more i do it the better it gets

that's my north america

ah-ha! we are north american scum
ah-ha! we're from north america
ah-ha! we are north american scum
ah-ha! we are north american

new york's the greatest if you get someone to pay the rent
wahoo north america!
and it's the furthest you can live from the government un huh huh
some fat american christians might disagree
here in north america
but new york's the only place we keep them off the street
boom boom
now- we can't have parties like in Spain where they go all night
shut down in north america
or like berlin where they go another night- alright! un huh un huh

you see i love this place that i have grown to know
alright! north america!
and yeah, I know you wouldn't touch us with a ten-foot pole
cause we're north americans.

ah-ha! we are north american scum
ah-ha! we are north americans
ah-ha! we are north american scum
ah-ha! we love north america

take me back to the states man
north american scum
where we can be in any one of a million new bands!
north america
where the dj gigs aren't as fun!
here in north american scum
don't blame the canadians
look out north america!!
