Welcome 2 America, welcome 2 the big show
Everybody's lookin' 4 something when there ain't no place 2 go
Except inside America is the only life know
Trans4mation happens deep within: yes or no?

Welcome 2 America
Where U can get hired, fired (Come on N, sit right down)
Rehired & get a 7 hundred billion dollar tip (N2 ur pockets, yeah)
ain't tryin' 2 B mean (Somebody's watching U)
Face 2 face contact now got a screen N between
Welcome 2 America

There's still a lot 2 learn about race relations
If ur N the mood 4 drama
Between 9-11, Hurricane Katrina & the election of Barack Obama
(Got an education of any situation)
Welcome 2 America

(Somebody's watching U)
Big Brother's N full effect
If U still get molested at the airport (It's up 2 me & U)
Just remember who U elected
Welcome 2 America

Watching U, watching me
Where the teachers tell U half of everything they know
Just 2 keep U not free
Now they want U 2 drink some tea (Who, me?)
Tell us the names of the past 7 Presidents b4 George Washington
Then we'll C
We about 2 make history
Welcome 2 America

Everybody ain't a star
don't care what Sly said
(Really don't care who U R)
Ain't nobody on the cover of the Rolling Stone
& the biggest star is dead

Welcome 2 America, welcome 2 the big show (Waitin' 4 Superman)
Everybody's lookin' 4 something when there ain't no place 2 go
Except inside America is the only life know
Trans4mation happens deep within: yes or no?
