I'm Afraid Of Americans Lyrics

Artist: David Bowie
Album: Earthling

Uh-uh-uh uh, uh, uh-uh uh-uh-uh
Johnny's in America
Low techs at the wheel
Uh-uh-uh uh, uh, uh-uh uh-uh-uh
Nobody needs anyone
They don't even just pretend
Uh-uh-uh uh, uh, uh-uh uh-uh-uh
Johnny's in America

I'm afraid of Americans
I'm afraid of the world
I'm afraid I can't help it
I'm afraid I can't

I'm afraid of Americans

Johnny's in America
Uh-uh-uh uh, uh, uh-uh uh-uh-uh

Johnny wants a brain
Johnny wants to suck on a Coke
Johnny wants a woman
Johnny wants to think of a joke

Uh-uh-uh uh, uh, uh-uh uh-uh-uh
Johnny's in America
Uh-uh-uh uh, uh, uh-uh uh-uh-uh


I'm afraid of Americans

Uh-uh-uh uh, uh, uh-uh uh-uh-uh

Johnny's in America
Johnny looks up at the stars
Johnny combs his hair
And Johnny wants pussy in cars

Johnny's in America, uh-uh-uh uh, uh, uh-uh uh-uh-uh
Johnny's in America, uh-uh-uh uh, uh, uh-uh uh-uh-uh


I'm afraid of Americans

God is an American
God is an American


Yeah, I'm afraid of Americans
I'm afraid of the words
I'm afraid I can't help it
I'm afraid I can't

I'm afraid of Americans

Johnny's an American
Johnny's an American

Johnny's an American, uh-uh-uh uh, uh, uh-uh uh-uh-uh (repeat)

in this video David Bowie's stalker is Trent Reznor from Nine inch nails
by Brendan on 6/14/2008 2:11pm
Reznor was the producer of this song and helped do much of the music.
by american on 6/24/2008 8:34am
we are all scared of americans
by S. O. Mebody on 7/19/2008 10:55am
I'm afraid of Americans too. They are all agressive and unintelligent. Except David Lynch, but the "Lynch" is an Irish name, so...
by jess on 8/30/2008 4:46pm
Us americans can be pretty scarey.
by Amer I Can on 10/31/2008 1:45pm
Thats Right. Be Afraid.
by johnny on 12/6/2008 2:07pm

by Alan on 1/14/2009 3:33pm
Trent Reznor looks so overweight in the music video its weird
by Yo on 3/16/2009 3:22pm
trent was overweight because he was recovering at the time so STFU
but really he was. I ove this song! BOWIE IS GAWD!
by George W Bush on 4/9/2009 10:10pm
I think those crazy british soccer fans r scary. the ones who r buff n COMPLETELY devoted to their team. like the ones in Euro Trip
by jane on 6/4/2009 10:53pm
hes afraid of americans because they are all stupid and cannot see what they do to rest of the world. open your eyes bro.
by Lena on 6/7/2009 9:02am
Trent Reznor did an amazing job with this song! Fabulous! Bowie is the king!
by joe on 6/12/2009 5:52pm
They are afraid of Americans because they are ignorant and listen to whatever the government tells them. and some of them go crazy out of anger and kill or torture.
by Ari on 6/24/2009 4:28pm
Trent Reznor was NOT the original producer of this song. It was performed firstly by Bowie long before Trent Reznor was even born.
by Bob Saget on 7/20/2009 11:59pm
Trent Reznor co-wrote and produced THIS version with Bowie... Before that it was a rough mix that appeared on the Showgirls soundtrack co-written with Brian Eno. In that version the chorus went "I'm afraid of the animals" instead. Great tune, I seen NIN perform it live it was awesome!
by heya on 8/16/2009 10:04pm
you guys are retards...saying the bad stuff about americans. yeah, there are HELLA idiots here. but HELLA everywhere. its very ignorant for you to think like that....what an easy way to think
by I<3Hoopties on 8/25/2009 8:39pm
Americans are amazing :D we are practically the smartest people in the world and everyone else is just jealous! hahahahaha GO US!
by saturnq on 11/28/2009 9:44pm
Looking at the comments for this, it blows my mind to see so many bigots and racists on here. How nicely and easily you judge and sum up millions of different people just because they come from a particualr country. Ignorant.
by Jacques Dc on 1/24/2010 3:57pm
I'm afraid how americans calls theirself americans. When America its too much bigger.

I'm american too, southamerican. I'm afraid of North hemisphere xD.
by lyla on 4/29/2010 1:39pm
YEAH BABY!!! i love americans
by clayton on 7/9/2010 2:23pm
all you dumb asses and no one has see that lyrics are wrong. there is a bunch missing like "god is an American" maybe thats why he is scared
by Alysha on 3/2/2011 11:46pm
I am american but i live in england. Everyone there loves me. I can see america has its faults but to be honest everywhere has its own faults. And sometimes to be honest im not proud to be american cause i see the way (not all) but many do act. I think people everywhere have degraded moraly but it seems that the overall populace of america is going down much faster than other parts of the world. People make me sick sometimes =/
by Kristi H on 3/8/2011 10:45am
Well my sister is an American ( well and myself ofcourse) and she is afraid of Bowie sooooo idk what to think of that lol. But David Bowie has such an amazing voice, we all love him ^_^
by an American on 4/2/2011 9:42pm
This song is horrable, a piece of garbage.
by ya on 6/3/2011 11:08am
"I am american but i live in england. Everyone there loves me."

problem found

Seriously? Okay, let's get one thing straight, people. One, you have no right to trash America unless you've either lived there for a decent amount of time or you actually do live there. It's quite short-sighted of those who make judgements about a country that they've never even been to. Also, America has its faults, but so does the UK and everywhere else in the world. We just have to deal because humans aren't perfect and there will always be some problems. Plus, I think everyone is taking this way too seriously. This is a song. A piece of ART, for goodness sakes! It's not meant to 'hate' on another country. It's meant to express that certain person's point of view. America has the most stable economy in the world, it is also the most free, and while there are some definite flaws, they should not become the definition of the word 'American'. That is placing people in one catagory based one a single aspect of who they happen to be and it is wrong.

I'm American and I hate beig one so I 'm moving to England and becomeing a citizen
by Messa on 1/10/2013 4:07am
Yes, us Americans are scary. Look at our history; Hitler, Mussolini, Nero, Pol Pot, Gaddafi, bin Laden, Edward the 1st of England, Richard the 1st of England, Mary of England.....oh, wait.
by sesshomaru sama on 1/12/2013 1:35pm

by BMAHO on 4/24/2013 2:22pm
