THE 2 LIVE CREW - Living in America

rate me

[Verse 1: Fresh Kid Ice]

There's 8 million stories in every city

And Americans love to watch it on TV

There's gays, lesbians, stripper nymphos

Teenage prostitutes, husbands gone psycho

The haters hate it 'cause it's too hot for TV

But America rules, nasty as we wanna be

Always #1 across the land

So don't hate Jerry 'cause he's the man!

With more fight time than HBO

And even Don King should promote talk shows

It't the best thing in years to hit the TV

'Cause America's rowdy-rowdy like Master P

Players everywhere love a good talk show

'Cause the hoochies get naked like a 2 Live show

So always represent the American way:

Freedom of speech and always gettin' paid!


Living in America!

Living in America! (All the time, station to station)

Living in America! (Here to here, across the nation)

Living in America! (Got to have a celebration)

[Verse 2: Brother Marquis]

The ghetto got me caught up in some talk show shhhhh

Now I'm on TV to find that my girl was a trick

She did my main man, plus my own band

I had to take a stand and beat the trick bad

Two sisters, that were doin' the two brothers

Now they fight 'cause they was doin' each other

The girl posin' nude used to be a dude

Outcasted from the family, now they startin' a feud

The man cheatin' on his wife got caught last night

'Cause the girl he was kissin' was a transvestite

Got caught on TV where it's too late to fight

Now the whole world knows about his secret life

50-year-old mom, dressed him like a hoochie

The hoodrat pulls a gat on the groupie

Too hot for TV, too much for the movies

Some lady smacked Jerry, say what? Sue me!



(Miami! Atlanta G.A.! Chicago! And L.A.!

Houston! And New York City! And don't forget - Cincinnatti!)

I live in America!

I live in America!

[Verse 3]

[Kid Ice]

No matter how you feel, the stories are real

Showin' the world how Americans feel

With home-grown topics and a final thought

They even got hoochies without their bras

Of all the talk shows he's the best by far ...

[Instrumental where there should be a verse]

So set your VCR's if you got to go,

'Cause you're living in America with the Springer show!


At the sound of the bell that goes Aw Hell!,

Another knock down, another video sale

All problems solved, all matters scarred

A girl got knocked out her chair upside the wall

More hair-pullin', nail-bitin' and people fightin'

I love this show because it's so excitin'

The people believe what they really see

On tabloid TV, even me!
