[Chorus]
G AWell this is life, this is Prime time
C GThis is livin' in the U. S. A.
G AWell this is life, this is Prime Time
C GThis is livin' the American way
[Verse 1]
G A7I was ridin' on the subway in the afternoon
C GI saw some kids 'a beatin' out a funky tune
G A7The lady right in front of me was old and brown
C GThe kids began to push her, they knocked her down
C GI tried to help her out but there was just no way
C D7A life ain't worth a damn on the street today
G A7I passed the ambulance and the camera crews
C GI saw the instant replay on the evening news
[Chorus]
G AWell this is life, this is Prime time
C GThis is livin' in the U. S. A.
G AWell this is life, this is Prime Time
C GThis is livin' the American way
[Verse 2]
G A7Well will you take the car, or will you take the trip?
C GRemove annoying hair from your upper lip
G A7What's it really worth? Does she really care?
C GWhat's the best shampoo that I can use on my hair?
C GHey what's the real future of democracy?
C D7How're we gonna streamline the bureaucracy?
G A7Hey, hey, the cost of life has gone sky-high
C GDoes the deodorant I'm using really keep me dry?
[Chorus]
G AWell this is life, this is Prime time
C GThis is livin' in the U. S. A.
G AWell this is life, this is Prime Time
C GThis is livin' the American way
[Verse 3]
G A7Well spin the magic wheel and try to break the bank
C GThink about your life when you fill in the blank
G A7Here's a game that's real if you wanna try
C GOne spot on the wheel that says you must die
C GAmerican roulette is the game we play
C D7But no-one wants to have to be the one to pay
G A7You get to pass "GO", you get to pass away
C GBut before we start our show, here's our sponsor to say:
[Chorus]
G AWell this is life, this is Prime time
Bb CThis is livin' in the U. S. A.
D FWell this is life, this is Prime time
G AThis is livin' in the U. S. A.
Bb CWell this is life, this is Prime Time
D F GThis is livin' the American way
[Verse 4]
G A7Well down in Mexico, the laundry's on the line
C GThere's where you can go if you land on the nine
G A7Canada is nice if you're fond of ice
C GIf you land on the two then we'll send you there twice
C GWe interrupt this game for a news release:
C D7A man has gone insane and been killed by police!
G A7Now back to the game, that's a dangerous play
C G'Cause if they see you in C-U-B-A you must pass away
[Chorus]
G AWell this is life, this is Prime time
C GThis is livin' in the U. S. A.
G AWell this is life, this is Prime Time
C GThis is livin' the American way
[Verse 5]
G A7My supper's on the stove, the war is on the screen
C GPass the bread and butter while I watch the Marine
G A7The shot him in the chest--Pass the chicken breast!
C GThe general is saying that he's still unimpressed.
C G"We had to burn the city 'cause they wouldn't agree
C D7That things go better with democracy!"
G A7The weather will be fair, forget the ozone layer,
C GBut strontium showers will be here and there
[Chorus]
G AWell this is life, this is Prime time
C GThis is livin' in the U. S. A.
G AWell this is life, this is Prime Time
C GThis is livin' the American way
[Verse 6]
G A7Well livin' in the country watchin' shadows fall
C GMy reception ain't too good in a power stall
G A7Bombers in the air, missiles in the sea
C GChemicals in everything, including me
C GThey don't keep their promise in the promised land
C D7It's getting mighty hard to find an honest man
G A7But coming very soon, a show you'll die to see
C GIt's called "The End Of The World", on channel "C"
[Chorus]
G AWell this is life, this is Prime time
Bb CThis is livin' in the U. S. A.
D FWell this is life, this is Prime time
G AThis is livin' in the U. S. A.
Bb CWell this is life, this is Prime Time
D F GThis is livin' the American way
