lyrics

Got up this morning with a smile on my face
I’m going to work to do the best that I can
Sun is shining all over the place
It's shining on my Chevy, my TV, my tan

Living in the USSA
People are happy now
That's what they say
I read it in the USSA Today

Going down the steppes to get a pack of camels
Bottle of Stoli, a steak, and a beer
Come Saturday morning gonna pull those weeds up
Toss the pigskin with Vladimir

Living in the USSA
People are happy now
That's what they say
I read it in the USSA Today

Full color photographs explain it all to me
Happiness is only seeing what you want to see
Pictures of people with movie star smiles
Standing next to new cars
Make it all seem so worthwhile

Lighting the coals for my BBQ dinner
Ice-cream truck is coming down the street
Check your receipt ‘cause you may be a winner
Making a wish on your rabbit's feet

Living in the USSA
People Are happy now
That's what they say
I read it in the USSA Today

Living in the USSA
People Are happy now
That's what they say
I read it in the USSA Today
