lyrics

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooooh
Ooh ooh ooh oooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh

I'm taking a fall for the bigger man
I'm taking a fall for the bigger man
I'm taking a fall for him, so
1, 2, 1 2 3 and
I'm taking a fall for the bigger man
I'm taking a fall for the bigger man
1, 2, 1 2 3 and

American exceptionalism is justified
And I can prove it, they didn't choose it
But don't confuse it, the last users died
So fast that those they left behind
Couldn't guard the ruins, trees grew back
So vast they seemed to last forever
No past, no future just the present
Grow back, grow into something special
I feel special like

Only those who've never had it bad can feel
I never had to deal with pain worse than braces
How would you play this hand of aces?
Balls back, respect that, twos before we play
Not my fault, we are following the rules of the game
Rule makers make the best rule breakers
But very poor saviours

I'm taking a fall for the bigger man
I'm taking a fall for the bigger man
I'm taking a fall for him, so
1, 2, 1 2 3 and
I'm taking a fall for the bigger man
I'm taking a fall for the bigger man
1, 2, 1 2 3 and

Any time a lucky guy does decent
He starts believing that he knows a little secret
When people ask him how he did it, can he teach it
He'll tell them, do as I have done and you'll repeat it
More of me would make the world a better place to be in
For me, he goes blind to other ways to be as he
Applies what worked for him to everybody universally

America's a terrible accident
What worked for it won't work for anybody after it
It's not a model, don't follow it
Take its money, cut the strings
Make it work for you where you live
Celebrate the fact that it exists
But know you don't want to be like it

A round of applause for the bigger man
A round of applause for the bigger man
A round of applause for him, so
1, 2, 1 2 3 and
A round of applause for the bigger man
A round of applause for the bigger man
1, 2, 1 2 3 and

A round of applause for the bigger man
A round of applause for the bigger man
A round of applause for him, so
1, 2, 1 2 3 and
A round of applause for the bigger man
A round of applause for the bigger man
1, 2, 1 2 3 and

1, 2, 1 2 3 and
1, 2, 1 2 3 and
1, 2, 1 2 3 and
1, 2, 1 2 3 and
1, 2, 1 2 3 and
1, 2, 1 2 3 and
