Glenn Frey Better In The U.S.A. Lyrics

Well they look to the east

They look to the west

The Third World wonders

Which way’s the best

We got freedom, we got soul

We got blue jeans and rock’n roll

Man, there ain’t no choice

It’s better in the U.S.A.

(It’s better in the U.S.A.)

You can be what you want

Say what you wanna say

(It’s better in the U.S.A.)

Why can’t I make you understand

It’s better in the U.S.A.

(It’s better in the U.S.A.)

I hear the same propaganda

Day after day

It’s gettin’ so hip to knock the U.S.A.

If we’re so awful and we’re so bad

You oughta check the night life

In Leningrad

Man, it ain’t even close

It’s better in the U.S.A.

(It’s better in the U.S.A.)

If you could see behind the curtain

Life is cold and grey

(It’s better in the U.S.A.)

How can I make you understand

It’s better in the U.S.A.

(It’s better, it’s better)

I think I’ll play

Nobody’s perfect and change comes slow

It’s really up to you

Which way you wanna go

You can lean to the left

And lean to the right

You can stand in the dark

You can stand in the light

Drivin’ on the beach

On a night in June

Me and my baby

In the lover’s moon

They’re playin’ sweet soul music

Got it turned up loud

Make me feel so good

Make me feel so proud

Man, there ain’t no choice

It’s better in the U.S.A.

(It’s better in the U.S.A.)

Well they’d be movin’ here from Moscow

If they could only find a way

(It’s better in the U.S.A.)

How can I make you understand

It’s better in the U.S.A., baby baby

(It’s better)

We got the burgers and fries

(In the U.S.A.)

We got the friendly skies

(In the U.S.A.)

We got the beautiful girls

(In the U.S.A.)

Got the beautiful curls

(In the U.S.A.)

We’re drivin’ beautiful cars

(In the U.S.A.)

We’re diggin’ movie stars

(In the U.S.A.)

We get to make romance

(In the U.S.A.)

Let the little girl dance

(In the U.S.A.)

It’s better, baby

Nice sweater, baby

What do you say you and me go for a little drive.

Come on.

It’s better [repeat and fade]
