they have another song called 4th of July but this one’s more patriotic

There are men lost in jail

Crowded fifty to a room

There’s too many rats in this cage of the world

And the women know their place

They sit home and write letters

Then they visit once a year

Well they both just sit there and stare

See how we are

Gotta keep bars in between us

See how we are

We only sing about it once in every twenty years

See how we are

Oh, see how we are


Now there are seven kinds of Coke

500 kinds of cigarettes

This freedom of choice in the USA drives everybody crazy

Down in Acapulco

Well they don’t give a damn

About kids selling chiclets with no shoes on their feet


See how we are

Hey man, what’s in it for me?

See how we are

We only sing about it once in every twenty years

See how we are

Oh, see how we are


Well this morning the alarm rang at noon

And I’m trying to write this letter to you

About how much I care and why I just can’t be there

To draw your bath and comb your hair

Last night in a nightspot

Where things ain’t so hot

My friend said, “I met a boy and I’m in love"

I said, “Oh really, what’s this one’s name?"

She said, “His first name is Homeboy"

I said, “Could his last name be Trouble?"


See how we are

Hey girl, I wouldn’t trust you as far as I can throw you

See how we are

We only sing about it once in every twenty years

See how we are

Oh, see how we are

Yeah, see how we are


Now that highway’s coming through

So you all gotta move

This bottom rung ain’t no fun at all

Fires and rock houses and grape-flavored rat poison

Are the new trinity

For this so-called community


See how we are

Gotta keep bars on all our windows

See how we are

We only sing about it once in every twenty years

See how we are

Oh, see how we are


See how we are

Yeah, see how we are

Oh, see how we are
