Hooray for Us Listen

it’s the Man from Glad! check out the latest hero
Mr. Studley Dudley Do-right
a head-to-toe real regular Joe
gone Superman overnight
better step aside, he’s a-truckin’ on through
safe and sound on the company plan
from the way Hard Charger keeps his troops in line
you can tell he’s a family man
higher, higher up the ladder of life he goes
bigger is better buddy, don’t you know?
no no no it don’t get better than this

hooray for the cowboys dressed in white
hooray for the system treats us all just right
hooray for the rules keepin creeps off the bus
but mostly we say Hooray For Us

he’s a little Bill with a big fat wish
he’s gonna own himself a Sears someday
selling washy-dryers to the hoi-polloi
man-with-a-plan is on his way
taking cash up front to deliver your stuff
another taste to pick it back up
then another from the dude who makes it disappear
is this a great system or what
higher, higher up the ladder of life he goes
bigger and better, even lil’ BillyBob knows
no no no it don’t get better than this

hooray for the good guys all dressed in white
and everybody knows when you’re white you’re right
hooray for Yankees, cause we’re the best
from New York City to the wild wild West
hooray, cause the little Bills win sometime
hooray for the system treatin’ us just fine
hooray for the rules keeping creeps off the bus
but mostly we say Hooray For Us

I love to be in America, okay by me in America
everything free in America for a small fee in America…
(just a half a mile from the…mmmmmmmm…
anything you want, at Alice’s Restaurant)

hats off to the wise ones who run us so well
from all the law and order here
you’d never know there’s places gone to hell
and here’s to the experts, no shadows of doubt
they’re happy to tell us we’re winning, we’re in and they’re out
higher, higher faster flyer we go
bigger is better, baby don’t you know?
no no no it doesn’t get better than this

hooray for the cowboys always dressed in white
hooray for the system treats us all just right
hooray for Yankees cause we’re the best
from Atlantic City to the wild wild West
step aside buddy, I got the right-of-way
hooray we’re ok, in God we trust
don’t listen to them hosers sayin this-or-that sucks
what you’d better say is
hooray for US
