Morrissey - America Is Not The World
Lyrics for the first track on Morrissey's forthcoming You Are The Quarry. No official lyrics with my copy, so these are just cribbed from my initial listens. Question marks mean I haven't a freakin' clue what he's saying.

America
your head's too big
Because America
your belly's too big
And I love ya
I just wish ya'd stay where you piss
Oh, oh, oh, oh....

In America
The land of the free they said
Land of opportunity
In a just and a truthful way
But where the president is never black, female, or gay
And until that day
You've got nothing to say to me
To help me believe
Oh, oh, oh, oh...

In America
They brought you the hamburger
Oh well America
You know where you can shove your hamburger
And don't you wonder why in Estonia they say
'Hey you (hey you) big fat pig (big fat pig)'
'You fat pig (you fat pig)'
'You fat pig (you fat pig)'

Steely blue eyes with no love in them
Scan the world
And a humourless smile with no warmth within
Greets the world
And I, I have got nothing to offer you
No, no, no, no...

Just this heart beat ??? and true ???
Which you say you don't need

See with your eyes
Touched with your hands
Please

Hear through your ears
Know in your soul
Please

For haven't you ??? with your mouth ???

And I love you
I love you
I love you

And I love you
I love you
I love you
I love you
