outnumbered 2 to 1
they gave those invaders
a nasty surprise

yes we love to celebrate
the courage of our underdogs
let’s have a martini

the borders are secure
no Frenchman or Russian
would dare tread on us

one hemisphere under God
and the free flow of capital
in spite of civil wars

we have made our doctrine
clear to all the world
this is our special place

so thank you Juarez & Seguin
we’re sending your children home
they must have got lost

out there in the night
outnumbered and unnamed
looking for that special place

we drink to you all
amigos allies loyal sidekicks
this party is for you

just don’t let the door
hit you in the ass
on your way out
