Lyrics and chords:

Intro: E, E, E, E

 EG
   Sixteen military wives
 AE
  Thirty-two softly focused brightly colored eyes
 EG
   Staring at the natural tan
 AE
  Of thirty-two gently clenching wrinkled little hands
 AB
   Seventeen company men
 C#DA
  Out of which only twelve will make it back again
 EG
   Seargeant sent a letter to five
 AE
  Military wives, his tears drip down to ten little eyes

 B
   Cheer them on to their rivals
 AEAEB
  Cause America can, and America can't say no
 AEAEB
  And America does, if America says it's so
 B
  It's so
( D O N T P L A Y H E R E )
And the anchorperson on TV goes
 E
  La de da de da

 EG
   Fifteen celebrity mimes
 AE
  Leaving their fifteen sorted wretched checkered lives
 EG
   Will they find the solution in time
 AE
  Using their fifteen pristine moderate liberal minds
 AB
   Eighteen academy chairs
 C#DA
  Out of which only seven really even care
 EG
   Doling out a garment to five
 AE
  Celebrity mimes, they're humbly taken by surprise

 B
   Cheer them on to their rivals
 AEAEB
  Cause America can, and America can't say no
 AEAEB
  And America does, if America says it's so
 B
  It's so
( D O N T P L A Y H E R E )
And the anchorperson on TV goes
 E
  La de da de da de di de di de da
 E
  La de da de da de di de di de da

Bridge: E, G, A, E, E, G, A, E

 AB
   Fourteen cannibal kings
 C#DA
  Wondering blindly what the dinner bell will bring
 EG
   Fifteen celebrity mimes
 AE
  Served on a leafy bed of sixteen military wives

 B
   Cheer them on to their rivals
 AEAEB
  Cause America can, and America can't say no
 AEAEB
  And America does, if America says it's so
 B
  It's so
( D O N T P L A Y H E R E )
And the anchorperson on TV goes
 E
  La de da de da de di de di de da
 E
  La de da de da de di de di de da
 E
  La de da de da de di de di de da
 E
  De da de da de di de di de da
 E
  De da de da de di de di de da

Outro: E, G, A, E, E, G, A, E, E, G, A, E
