"Harley"

[Verse]
Harley didn't have no education, he could hardly read and write
He was locked into a dead-end occupation, his future didn't look too bright
He worked eighteen years on the assembly line
Just getting by with a little bit of overtime
And that could be the end of this story of mine but it's just the beginning
Late one night when he was working on the graveyard, Harley got himself this big idea
All he'd have to do is change one little screw, save millions of dollars a year
So he worked and he saved until he could open his own shop
Money started rolling in like it wasn't going to stop
So Harley bought a mountain, built a mansion on top
So the losers could see whom was winning
Only in America with nothing but a dream, only in America where every man's king
First Harley's daughter, Janet, found a guru she gave him everything she owned
Then Harley junior joined some kind of rock band
And walked around all day about half stoned
His wife watched TV all the time because she got bored
Then one day she found a TV preacher she adored
And she gave all of Harley's hard earned money to the Lord
Harley started drinking, wound up in Betty Ford to see if he could buy a happy ending
Then some kid who worked in Harley's factory, he got himself this big idea
Figured out how to do it with computers, drove Harley out of business in a year
Now Harley's back working the assembly line
Just getting by with a little bit of overtime
But don't count Harley out because he isn't the quitting kind
He stares at that computer with one thing on his mind
How to make them more user-friendly
Only in America
Only in America
