Welcome

Welcome 2 America
Where U can fail at ur job
Get fired, rehired
& get a 7 hundred billion dollar tip
Come on N, sit right down
& fill up ur pockets, yeah
Mass media
In4mation overload

Welcome 2 America
(The following message is brought 2 U by Diacom)
Distracted by the features of the iPhone
(Got an application 2 fix ur situation)
N other words
Taken by a pretty face
(Somebody's watching U)
Welcome 2 America ( C U...)
Hook up later at the iPad
Or we can meet at my place
Welcome 2 America...

Where everything & nothing
That Google says is hip
(The sales tax 4 the following items
Will B raised immediately:
Cigarettes, soda, gas, liquor & medicinal weed...)
We will not raise ur taxes
Read our lips

Welcome 2 America (Welcome)
Welcome 2 the big show (2 America)
Everybody's lookin' 4 something
When there ain't no place 2 go
Welcome 2 America
Except inside America (Welcome)
That's the only place know (2 America)
Trans4mation happens deep within
Yes or no?
Yes

Welcome 2 America
1 of our greatest exports
Was a thing called jazz
{scatting}
U think 2day's music will last?
(Dismantle all monopolies...)
Welcome 2 America
Welcome

Hope & change
Mm, everything takes 4ever
& truth is a new minority
Truth
Awww, welcome 2 America
Welcome 2 America

2day, we'd like 2 discuss America's plan
2 fix the educational system
The Pledge of Allegiance
Will now read as follows:
pledge allegiance 2 the earth
Of the United States of the Universe
Welcome 2 America (About time)

There is no arguing with the book
(When am gonna learn something new?)
There is no arguing with the book
(Who's gonna teach it 2 me? U?)
There is no arguing with the book
(What's that outside my windowsill?)
There is no arguing
(Could it B our free will?)
U say yes
say no
Yet love flows

America can provide many opportunities
4 the young female who wishes 2 work
(4 the State)
4 her own advancement
Up from the underclass 2 become 1

Welcome 2 America
Go 2 school 2 become a celebrity
But don't B late (F A M O U S)
Everybody & their mama got a sex tape

Welcome 2 America
We snatch bass players
Not purses
Keep playin'
It gets worse

Land of the free
Home of the brave
Oops, mean...
Land of the free
Home of the slave
Get down on ur knees
Hit me!

Welcome 2 America
Welcome 2 the big show
Everybody's lookin' 4 something
When there ain't no place 2 go
(That's it, y'all)
Except inside America
(U can either learn Chinese)
That's the only place know
(Or get down...)
Trans4mation happens deep within
(On ur knees)
Yes or no?
