wild america lyrics – iggy pop

one night out in l.a.
i met a mexicana
with a butchy girlfriend
who i thought was a man
they took me to the alley
to have a little chat
people lined the corners
doin’ this and that
in wild america

now i’m in a black car
with my mexicana
she’s got methedrine but
i want marijuana
i don’t want to drive home
not in my condition
so i ask my friend matt
to handle the ignition
in wild america
exterminate the brutes

(live interview)

rollins: yeah
iggy: yeah
rollins: yeah
iggy: yeah
iggy: well i mean i like it here.
iggy: do you have anything
you’d like to say to america?
rollins: i’d just like to say at this point
that i’m a 24 hour, 7 day a week, 365 day a
year american

i was glad that debbie
had a sense of humor
this time of the morning
i tend to get gloomy
she laughed and said “iggy,
you have got a biggy!”
i had no reply
so i just closed my eyes
in wild america
exterminate the brutes
they’re goin’ wild
goin’ wild
they’re goin’ wild
they’re goin’ wild baby
they got all kinds of f*ckin’ stuff
they got everything you could imagine
they’re so god dammed spoiled
they’re poisoned inside
they judge a man by what he’s got
and they wanta have more and more
more power
more freedom
taller kids
longer lives
bigger houses
