It's over here behind me
All American received
The simple life of leisure
And if you do as you're asked
You'll have only more to see
Believe us

Because I can do anything I want
Only when they tell me that they want me to
And that's hard to do

I can't trust anyone who would only support us
A little while

That's why it's strange to see
That the all-american is me
I got the all-american disease

I'll be going to San Francisco in a couple of days
Do you wanna go?

We'll be free of the shackles that bind us
Quit your job
I quit mine
But don't say nothing about
What we're leaving behind

We're gonna dance on all night at the disco
Arthur Murray would be appalled

Climbing to the top we'll get out on a dock
Take out a loaner
Sail around

But don't say nothing about us
What I'm on

And don't say maybe
Cause I gotta know, baby
If you wanna go
I wanna see you
I wanna see you living in another world

And I'll be wrong
Just to give you a song
And to keep sure you stay young

We're gonna float
Be a part of the ocean
Forget it all
Because we gave it all
Gonna bathe our face in the salty lotion
Lose our place in the plan of man

But don't say nothing about us
I'm bringing my band

And I'll be wrong just to give you a song

Don't say maybe
I gotta know, baby
If you wanna go
I wanna see you
Gotta see you dance in another world

Don't say maybe
