The song was written at a time before integration, and the lyrics were originally about racism. It had the following chorus: “Only in America, land of opportunity, can they save a seat in the back of the bus just for me. Only in America, Where they preach the Golden Rule, will they start to march when my kids go to school.” Atlantic Records had a problem with the lyrics, so the songwriters changed them to be a satiric message of patriotism.
