Crawling to the USA

This song is by Elvis Costello and appears on the 2007 Deluxe Edition of My Aim Is True (1977) and on the 1993, 2002 and 2008 reissue of This Year's Model (1978).

I thought I would go to the sea and shrink down very tiny
And slide inside the telephone wire that runs under the briny
Till I found there is a way of crawling to the USA

You had better not go too far
There's one way out, there's only one way
Leave your mother and your father
Crawling to the USA

Saw it late one night on a secret channel
(Crawling to the USA)
It's farther on along the tunnel
(Crawling to the USA)
It's way beyond the final station
That's the one they never mention

You had better not go too far
There's one way out, there's only one way
Leave your mother and your father
Crawling to the USA

You don't have to pay them that much
(Crawling to the USA)
You had better bring your lunch
(Crawling to the USA)
It's undercover, around the houses
Up your skirt and down your trousers

You had better not go too far
There's one way out, there's only one way
Leave your mother and your father
Crawling to the USA

She said, "I catch you taking liberties and they do not impress me
Attach me to your credit card and then you can undress me"
Everybody is on their knees except the Russians and the Chinese

You had better not go too far
There's one way out, there's only one way
Leave your mother and your father
Crawling to the USA

Crawling to the USA, crawling to the USA
Crawling to the USA, crawling to the USA
Crawling to the USA, crawling to the USA
Crawling to the USA, crawling to the USA
Crawling to the USA, crawling to the USA
Crawling to the USA
