lyrics

Superman:
Truth and liberty and justice all are in jeopardy tonight.
All we cherish here, and all the values that we hold dear
Are in the balance tonight.

But we’re American, and it’s America, and in America
We do what’s right.

The firetruck’s here for the kitty in the tree,

Superman and Citizens
Oh the American way!

Superman:
And if the cops can’t come, you can always call on me.

Superman and Citizens:
That’s the American way!

Superman:
Because I can, therefore I will.

Batman:
Tonight it’s personal, I’m unleashing my arsenal
To rain blood tonight.
Tonight I’m gonna save my bro
And if all of Gotham has got to go
Then so be it.
Cause it’s America, and I’m American, and in America
I do what I like.
If money can’t fix it than I haven’t found it yet.

Citizens:
Oh the American way!

Batman:
Be a born billionaire and have your butler build a jet.

Citizens:
That’s the American way!

Batman:
Because I can, save my friend, I have no parents,
I’m my own boss man.

Sweet Tooth:
Tonight we’re taking back the town
We’ve got a bat trap set we’re gonna catch the clown
In Gotham tonight.
We’ve got a warhead ready in the water supply
Tonight The Bat and his bull won’t fly
So Gotham goodnight!
Cause it’s America, and we’re American, and in America
We fight!
Never gonna win ‘til your enemies are dead

Sweet Tooth and Rogues:
Oh the American way!

Sweet Tooth:
Spreading dread and blowing up their heads.

Sweet Tooth and Rogues:
That’s the American way!

Sweet Tooth:
Because I candy do as I please, I’m spreading chocolate
On Gotham’s cheese.

Superman:
The letter of the law is a capital “S.”

Citizens:
Oh the American way!

Citizen:
We’re all just pawns in a fuckin’ game of chess.

Citizens:
That’s the American way!

Two Face:
A briefcase filled with two dollar bills.

Citizens:
Oh the American way!

Batman:
Inheritance trust funds, million dollar bills.

Citizens:
Oh the American
Not quite Canadian
Most of us are Mexican
American way!
