America, the land of the free, the home of the brave

Thats what I thought before I toured there

You see, Ive got myself being seduced by the sheer americana of it all

And Id seen their images on television

Of lee harvey oswald, john f. kennedys assassination

And I thought "america is a violent place"

And america is keen to trap you

Like you had giant tentacles that wrapped themselves around you

Until you couldnt move and you were trapped

The land of the free, the home of the brave, guns and the wild west

Hey big fat cowboy, wearing your big stetson

Hey big fat cowboy, flashing your big six gun

Hey big fat cowboy, singing country & western

Hey big fat cowboy, is this the way that the west was won? yeah

I found myself in the back of a big ford thunderbird

With a slick-looking dude

He looked like a punk from a b-movie,

The sort of punk that would piss everybody off

Until lee marvin put a bullet through his brain

The punk looked over at me

"kinks? what kind of a motherfuckin name is that? "

Then he reached over and picked up the car telephone

"hey kid, Ive got elvis presleys phone number.

Ive got ann-margrets phone number. Ive fucked ann-margret!"

I knew mick avory would be impressed with this, but I was not

And then the punk looked over at me

"ill dial elvis presley" he dialed a number

"hey, is that you elvis? I wanna speak to the colonel.

Jump to it, you mother!"

And then he looked over at me in a menacing way,

Reached into the glove-compartment and took out a revolver

He waved the six gun around, menacingly

"you see kid, when I deal with people, they have to treat me right,

Otherwise they contend with this! a gun!

Have you ever seen a gun before? "

I hadnt

Then he waved it around, put it back in the glove-compartment

"welcome to peoria, illinois, home of middle america,

Ice-cream and apple pie, guns and the wild west"

All american wise guy, why achieve that gleam in the sun

Hamburger and a milkshake, all american dude

Popcorn and a t-bone, hot dog with a big smile

And a bad attitude, yeah yeah yeah

Flying across america on a twa, flying to california

To appear on television, performing our new record set me free

The kinks were met by a union man with a contract to sign

And the kinks didnt like signing contracts

"hey, are you the kinks? sign this piece of paper guys!

I want you to sign this union-document so you can appear on television"

"no thanks mate, we dont wanna sign a contract"

"you have to sign, otherwise you cannot appear"

"we dont want to sign a piece of paper, alright!"

"listen kid, you sign the piece of paper.

You with your red hunting jackets and your yellow frilly shirts.

Sign the piece of paper!"

"do you wanna sign it? " he looked over at dave

"watcha gonna do kid? " "fuck off!"

Which is a fairly reasonable thing to say in the circumstances,

But not very wise, you see, the man was a union executive

"alright. once I file my report on you guys

Youre never gonna work in america again.

Youre gonna find out just how powerful it is in america!"

The land of ice-cream and apple pie, guns and the wild west

Great american union rules with the fist, a smile and a gun

Great american napalm lights up the sky like the sun

Great american eagle swoops down from the sky up above

And I remember the images of lee harvey oswald

Appearing on tv saying he was a patsy

A union man is a-framin the kinks

While I thought "this is the land of opportunity"

But the cosa nostra are everywhere

Land of ice-cream and apple pie

Hey big fat cowboy, wearing that big six gun

Hey big fat cowboy, singing country & western

Hey big fat cowboy, moving that big six gun

Hey big fat cowboy, is this the way that the west was won? 

Yeah yeah yeah

And 6 weeks later robert and grenville and larry

Were sitting in their office in carnaby street

And the letter came from the american government

It was from the american federation of musicians union

"a band known as the kinks,

The english beat group known as the kinks,

Are banned from america.

Their license to perform has been revoked indefinitely"

Yeah, all the same fuck off

In the land of the ice-cream and apple pie, guns and the wild west
