Welcome 2 America Lyrics - Prince — Paroles de Chansons

PAROLES

[Intro]
Welcome

[Verse 1]
Welcome to America
Where you can fail at your job
Get fired, rehired
And get a seven-hundred billion dollar tip
(Come on in, sit right down, and fill up your pockets, yeah)
Mass media, information overload
Welcome to America
(The following message brought to you by Datacom)
Distracted by the features of the iPhone
(Got an application for each of situation)
In other words, taken by a pretty face
(Somebody’s watching you)
(I see you, I see you) Welcome to America
Hook up later at the iPad
We can meet at my place (Welcome to America)

[Refrain]
Welcome to America (Welcome to America)

[Verse 2]
Where everything and nothing that Google says is hip
(The sales tax for the following items will be raised immediately)
We will not raise your taxes (Cigarettes, soda, gas)
Read our lips

[Chorus]
Welcome to America (America)
Welcome to the big show (To America)
Everybody’s looking for something
When there ain’t no place to go (Welcome to America)
Except inside America (America)
That’s the only place I know (To America)
Transformation happens deep within
Yes or no? (Yes)

[Verse 3]
Welcome to America
One of our greatest exports was a thing called jazz
You think today’s music’ll last?
(Dismantle all monopolies)
(Dismantle all monopolies)
Welcome to America (Welcome)
(Hope and change) Mm, everything takes forever
And truth is a new minority (Truth)
Oh, welcome to America
(Welcome to America)

[Interlude]
Today, we’d like to discuss America’s plan to fix the educational system
The Pledge of Allegiance will now read as follows
“I pledge allegiance to the Earth of the United States of the Universe”
(Welcome to America)

[Verse 4]
There is no arguing with the book
(When am I gonna learn something new?)
There is no arguing with the book
(Who’s gonna teach it to me? You?)
There is no arguing with the book
(What’s that outside my window sill?)
There is no (Could it be?), arguing (Our free will?)
You say yes, I say no, let love flow

[Interlude]
America can provide many opportunities for the young female who wishes to work (For the state)
For her own advancement up from the underclass to become one

[Verse 5]
Welcome to America
Go to school to become a celebrity
But don’t be late (F-A-M-O-U-S)
And everybody and they mama got a sex tape
Welcome to America
We snatch bass players, not purses
Keep playing, it gets worse
(Land of the free, home of the brave)
(Oops, I mean, land of the free, home of the slave)
Get down on your knees, hit me

[Chorus]
Welcome to America
Welcome to the big show
Everybody’s looking for something
When there ain’t no place to go
Except inside America, that’s the only place I know (Or get down)
Transformation happens deep within
Yes (Knees), or no?
