Message:  Lyrics of the Bill Callahan song America! from his album Apocalypse:

America! America! America! America!
You are so grand and gold, golden
Oh I wish I was deep in America tonight

America! America!
I watch David Letterman in Australia
Oh America!
You are so grand and gold, golden
I wish I was on the next flight to America

Captain Kristofferson
Buck Sergeant Newbury
Leatherneck Jones
Sergeant Cash
What an army, what an air force, what a marines
America!
I never served for my country
America! America!

Afghanistan, Vietnam, Iran, Native American
America!
Well everyone's allowed a past they don't care to mention
America! America!

Well it's hard to rouse a hog in delta
And it can get tense around the Bible belt
America! America!

All the lucky suckle teat
Others chaw pig knuckle meat
Ain't enough teat, ain't enough teat, ain't enough teat
Ain't enough teat, ain't enough teat, ain't enough to eat
In America
America! America!
In America
