Dead Yankee Drawl - Manic Street Preachers

Bill and Ted and Wayne's World drawl
Just another dull f_cking bore
Vietnam's cool now even Superman's believed
Hussein still in power as the media war retreats
S_ck your honey until you choke
You are a mechanism of social control
Multi-national aim of a one world culture
Turning one dollar into another and another

Dead Yankee Drawl hey we got your beat
Dead Yankee Drawl hey we love Oscar

Smothering injustice seen through starving eyes
Tearing down forests just to earn a buck
Killed off literature for sex and violence
Feed a generation the equivalent of silence
Dragged Jack down to self same bigotry
Passive acceptance of a consumer society
Fake sentiments tying up contracts
Making idols of guitars and haircuts
Multi-national aim of a one world culture
Turning one dollar into another and another

Dead Yankee Drawl hey we got your beat
Dead Yankee Drawl hey we love Oscar

Smothering injustice seen through Red Indian Eyes
Silent race war of Hollywood lies
Lets go down to Greenwich Village and desecrate
The Noraid slogans that justify 6 counties hate
Lets go down Redondo beach and wax body company
Cos reality for T.V. is Disney not King, Rodney
Lets go down to Indiana Youth Centre quickly
Tyson's money ain't as free as Junior Kennedy's
