      About "Pink Houses"

      Lyrics for John Mellencamp - "Pink Houses"

      There's a black man with a black cat
      Living in a black neighborhood
      He's got an interstate running' through his front yard
      You know, he thinks, he's got it so good
      And there's a woman in the kitchen cleaning' up evening slop
      And he looks at her and says:
      "Hey darling, I can remember when you could stop a clock"

      Oh but ain't that America, for you and me
      Ain't that America, we're something to see baby
      Ain't that America, home of the free, yeah
      Little pink houses for you and me, oh for you and me

      Well there's a young man in a T-shirt
      Listenin' to a rock 'n' roll station
      He's got a greasy hair, greasy smile
      He says: "Lord, this must be my destination"
      'Cause they told me, when I was younger
      Sayin' "Boy, you're gonna be president"
      But just like everything else, those old crazy dreams
      Just kinda came and went

      Oh but ain't that America, for you and me
      Ain't that America, we're something to see baby
      Ain't that America, home of the free, yeah
      Little pink houses, for you and me, oh baby for you and me

      Well there's people and more people
      What do they know, know, know
      Go to work in some high rise
      And vacation down at the Gulf of Mexico
      Ooo yeah

      And there's winners, and there's losers
      But they ain't no big deal
      'Cause the simple man baby pays the thrills,
      The bills and the pills that kill

      Oh but ain't that America, for you and me
      Ain't that America, we're something to see baby
      Ain't that America, home of the free, yeah
      Little pink houses for you and me, ooo, ooo yeah

      Ain't that America, for you and me
      Ain't that America, hey we're something to see baby
      Ain't that America, oh the home of the free,
      Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
      Little pink houses babe for you and me, ooo yeah ooo yeah
