Look outa your windows, watch the skies
Read all the instructions with bright blue eyes
We’re W.A.S.P.’s, yeah proud American sons
We know how da clean our teeth
And how da strip down a gun

‘Cause we’re the 51st state of America
Yeah we’re the 51st state of America
This is the 51st state of America

Our star-spangled Union Jack flutters so proud
Over the dancin’ heads of the merry patriotic crowd
Yeah, tip your hat to the Yankee conquerors
We got no reds under the bed with guns under our pillows

We’re the 51st state of America
Yeah we’re the 51st state of America
This is the 51st state of America

Wo-ho-ho-ho-ho
Wo-ho-ho-ho-ho

Here in the land of opportunities
Hah!
I watch us revel in our liberty
Well, you can say what you like but it doesn’t change anything
‘Cause the corridors of power they’re an ocean away
