Long hair, jeans, handmade guitar
That Goddamn day in JFK I thought,
I'll soon become a star
And things will be OK
Car-wash, gas-station, supermarket
There is no better job
For tough, ambitious Russianjerk
On his way to the top.
So slow and hard this fuck'n way
But I don't really care.
America, you're eating me alive
Any fool can be a millionare
So I will try
Pretty chicks who don't exactly care
Will weap & cry
I could be king of nightclubs
If doorman let me in
You just need to speak some Russian
To know what I mean.
But they are gambling, drinking, smoking
But I don'y really care.
America, you're eating me alive!
Cheapest beer in Brooklin bars - my only pleasure
The stolen tape recorder is my only pleasure
Black streep-girl from the go-go club - my only friend
I'm Slavic hero drunk & lost in promised land
America, you're eating me alive! Well,
I could be doing better,
But I don't give a shit.
