Original video
She looked at me with dignity, said
"Baby, there's one thing you've gotta see
Even though we're headed for war
This nation's prouder than ever before

Yes, there's a spirit in the air
We're more American than anywhere!"
Well, I just smiled 'cause I could tell
This little girl's going to hell

All the warmth in her heart
Can't keep my blood from running cold
First I fell for her looks
Now I just wanna go for the throat
I tried to tell her a hundred times
Poor little girl didn't understand at all

Pride comes before a fall

This ain't the summer of love
This ain't the summer of love
This ain't the summer of love
This ain't the summer of love

I don't know what you're thinkin' of
This ain't the summer of love

This ain't the garden of Eden
There ain't no angels above
Things ain't what they used to be
This ain't the summer of love

It's the summer of fuck
