Wiki

By happy hearts, so broken
We stuck by you, and you know
Your bold swagger made us forget
the dagger at our throat

You're always in a hurry and a rage
I call it defiance of coming of age
But you've cast your last spell on us
You've bombed your last bridge to us, oh

We used to love America

You would have won the world by letting go,
But then you lost your way
Your glory days are gone, so smile and roll over
We've got so much more in common today
All hail the stumbling child-king,
Calling for the vanishing light
Now stay with us, as brothers,
through this darkest of nights, oh

We used to love America

And I remember how you said, we shall all sing again
Screw the rest;
The west knows best

Yeah, I remember how you sang, we shall all just sing it
Screw the rest;
The west knows best

Oh, screw the rest;
The west knows best

We used to love America
