    This country’s sure got problems
    Corruption, crime, and drugs.
    And though we try to fix the world
    The world just hates our guts.
    But for all our woes and troubles
    I still love the US
    ‘Cause compared to the rest of the world
    America sucks less

    They call us all polluters
    With our Hummer SUV’s
    But in China you can taste the air
    And it taste like iPhone 3’s
    You may hate our politicians
    And protest what they say
    But think about how much it sucks
    To be Russian and gay

    Our congress can’t do anything
    Our senators are goons
    But at least they were elected
    And their name’s not Kim Jong–un
    Japan makes better cars than us
    Games and cartoon shows
    But I saw The Cove on Netflix huh
    And that was pretty …, bros

    America, I love you, out of necessity
    You’re not too hot and not too cold
    And mostly not diseased
    Compared to the alternative
    You’re probably the best
    ‘Cause the whole world sucks
    But America sure sucks less

    Our economy is tanking
    But we’re not as … Greece
    Our fast food is disgusting
    But Italians eat maggot cheese
    The NSA is spying on
    Our emails and phone calls
    But good luck finding WiFi
    In some village in Nepal

    Brazil is full of riots
    Australia’s full of snakes
    Mexico’s got cartels
    And their water makes you …for days
    Dubai is just Las Vegas
    Without alcohol or fun
    And Africa’s in a post-colonial tailspin
    Of genocide and oppression

    I am so sorry you for everything you guys have to deal with! Movin’ on.

    America, I love you
    Though you’re run by old white men
    Republicans are …
    But at least they’re not the French
    We’d probably get a solid B
    If they gave the world a test
    ‘Cause the whole world blows
    But America sure blows less

    America, I love you
    For your lack of murder squads (lack of murder squads)
    Your working indoor plumbing
    And your mostly valid laws (your mostly valid laws)
    In a world of mostly …
    America stinks the best
    Except for maybe Canada
    You guys have a pretty good thing going

    ‘Cause the whole world sucks
    But America sure sucks less
