Miss America
David Byrne Lyrics


I love America
Her secret's safe with me
I know her wicked ways
The parts you never see

Oh Super girl
You'll be my Supermodel
Although you have a reputation
Can I afford?
Are you above my station?
I'm not the only heart you've conquered.

I love America
But boy can she be cruel
I know how tall she is
Without her platform shoes

Oh Super girl
You'll be my Supermodel
Although at time it might seem awkward
Don't run away
Oh don't you recognize me?
I'm not the only heart you've conquered.

I kissed America
When she was fleecing me
And she know I understand
That she needs to be free

I miss America
And sometimes she does too
And sometimes I think of her
When she is fucking you

I love America
Siempre Confiado en ti
I love America
Porque me trates asi?

Oh Super girl
You'll be my Supermodel
Although you pants are 'round your ankles
And when you're down
I'll be your Dirty Harry
It will be just like in the movies.

Oh Super girl
You'll be my Supermodel
Although at time it might seem awkward
Don't look away
I'll be your teenage fanclub
I'm not the only heart you've conquered.

Nameless Goon

David Byrne with frosted tips is truly a sight to behold.

Joseph Stassup

He looks like Malcom with wrinkles.

Will Mistretta

At least he was taking the piss. I bet a lot of other artists from the period wish they could claim the same now.

Dan Nordquist

And a labret!

Rob Field

The satire was a little ham-fisted here.

Bryan Kuiper

agreed

Elegia

Ok, I can't get pop punk David Byrne out of my head.

D Snelson Alexander Rex

I’ve always loved this song and had no idea it had a video. Couldn’t be a more profound message this day in age.

Alex Orozco

Watching his videos confirms me everytime that I did a wise expense in paying for watching him play live. My god, this man should be a considered for some higher human achievement or anything in the sort. We don't know how much we'll have this entity in this very plane.

I remember a show of his, too. He played solo on stage with an acoustic guitar probably🎙. As he went through a few songs, accompaniment joined from out of nowhere. And then there was a full band sound. And then the curtain dropped and he was backed by a huge band with big horn section. 🎷🎷🎺🎺

That was when i thought i wanted to marry David Byrne.
