"United States of Imperialism"

Yeah, yeah I’m out that ‘Merica, now I’m down in the White House
Right next to McKinley, where I’ll be known forever
I’m the new Lili, and since I made it here
I can take Hawaii anywhere
I used to be a lawyer, aloha my ohanas
Right up there on the top
Brought me all the money, stop
Tried my best to annex, need a new amex
Catch me as the leader, fighting for my constitution
Cruisin down Honolulu, July 4th 1894
Then I had to stop, but I was on the top
Cleveland caught me cheatin’, kicked me out with a beatin’
Now I live in prison, and I brought my boys with me
Say wuddup to the queen, and I still got a feen
I was put aside, Cleveland givin’ me no high fives
Man, I must be hated, I can trick the whole city
Tell by my attitude that I’m most definitely like

The States, conquering islands
Philippines, Cuba
There's nothin’ we can’t do
Now this is The States
Influence of us on others
Exceptionalism
Let’s hear it for The States
The States, The States

Catch me fightin’ for the rights of my friends, yeah I said it
How we got Philippines, ignorin’ our own genes
You should know it ain’t right, so I keep fighting though
And I got my gang, none of us making bank so
Welcome to the messed up world, fists are getting mad curled
Let’s form a bomb ass league, home of the free speech
Spanish war, what else more, yeah we swore, no no more
For foreigners it ain’t fair, they come in here makin’ no sh*t man
This ain’t no American affair, we should’ve ran
It’s a pity half of us won’t make it
Me, I got my God, and we all know he ain’t flawed
If He telling me go ahead, I’m gon nod my head
Self government, don’t go lament
The White Man’s Burden, we are all referred in
Statue of Liberty, long live the good stage

Our States, conquering islands
Philippines, Cuba
There's nothin’ we can’t do
Now this is The States
Influence of us on others
Exceptionalism
Let’s hear it for The States
The States, The States

Taft is blinding, men need blinders
So they can pull him out the bath big, that body is
Linin’ up companies so that can sip money
Then gradually become one; don’t bathe again, please!
Caught up with the big crowd, now that’s his way
And using money so bold and gold not thinking wow
Our city of sin is a pity to the kin
Bad men go rogue, the city’s filled with ‘em
Tafty took a huge leap, now he got his mess out
Everybody hate him, just like trumps’ snout
Hail to the Taft, he’s a savior
Jesus really saved us, protectin’ our power pride
Came here for peace, ended with that dumb good good life
Big boys yeah, bad peeps, addicted to the limelight
Dollar diplo. got you feeling like a champion
Our people never sleep, never takin’ a break man

Our States, conquering islands
Philippines, Cuba
There's nothin’ we can’t do
Now this is The States
Influence of us on others
Exceptionalism
Let’s hear it for The States
The States, The States

Hands up for the Chinese industry switch
Cheap price, more money, good looking b*tch
No place in the world we’d rather be
Throw our money in the air
Everybody say: “U.S.A.”
C’mon U.S.A

Our States, conquering islands
Philippines, Cuba
There's nothin’ we can’t do
Now this is The States
Influence of us on others
Exceptionalism
Let’s hear it for The States
The States, The States
