Description

Album: American Pie Text: One, two, three, four! Fortune has me well in hand, armies 'wait my command My gold lies in a foreign land buried deep beneath the sand The angels guide my ev'ry prayer, my enemies are sick or dead But all the victories I've led haven't brought you to my bed CHORUS: You see, everybody loves me, baby, what's the matter with you? Won'tcha tell me what did I do to offend you? Now the purest race I've bred to be to live in my democracy And the highest human pedigree awaits the first-born boy baby And my face on ev'ry coin engraved, the anarchists are all enslaved My own flag is forever waved by the grateful people I have saved CHORUS: You see, everybody loves me, baby, what's the matter with you? Won'tcha tell me what did I do to offend you? Now, no man is beyond my claim when land is seized in the people's name By evil men who rob and maim, if war is hell, I'm not to blame! Why, you can't blame me, I'm Heaven's child, I'm the second son of Mary mild And I'm twice removed from Oscar Wilde, but he didn't mind, why, he just smiled Yes, and the ocean parts when I walk through, and the clouds dissolve and the sky turns blue I'm held in very great value by everyone I meet but you 'cause I've used my talents as I could, I've done some bad, I've done some good I did a whole lot better than they thought I would so, c'mon and treat me like you should! Because everybody loves me, baby, what's the matter with you? Won'tcha tell me what did I do to offend you? Everybody loves me, baby, what's the matter with you? Won'tcha tell me what did I do to offend you? Yeah, everybody loves me, baby, what's the matter with you? Won'tcha tell me what did I do to offend you?
