Original version

I found a new religion yesterday
I'd just cleared immigration JFK
A priest got in a cadillac
The shoe shine boy sang gospel
As God and his accountants drove away

You'll see him coast to coast on live TV
In a stadium rocked by Satan just the night before
The collection from the faithful is tax free
It'll pay for
His presidential campaign and his yacht

And we all bow down
We bow down to the big wedge
And we'll buy ourselves some heaven here on earth
We sell our souls
We sell our souls for big wedge
Are we selling out tomorrow for today?

A surgeon checks your plastic on the phone
A casio concerto entertains you while you hold
Your credit rating's good for a Madonna or a Bardot
A Dali or a Picasso for his wall

You're looking good
You're looking good with big wedge
Are you holding back tomorrow for today?
They're driving in
They're driving in the big wedge
Are we selling out tomorrow for today?

You'll sell the ground beneath your feet
You'll sell your oil
You'll sell your trees
Your ideals and integrity
Your culture and your history
Your children into slavery
To labour in their factories
Your mother and your family
You'll sell the world eventually

The IMF and CIA
There's just no difference
They're all the same
It just depends on what's your point of view

America
America the big wedge
And they're buying your tomorrow for today
The promises
The promises of big wedge
And they'll break them ike your hearts another day
When you find out that you've left it just too late
And you'll find that you're the only one to blame
That you sold out your tomorrow yesterday

For big wedge (big wedge)
You sold out for the big wedge (big wedge big wedge)
For the big wedge
For the big wedge (big wedge)
They're driving in
They're driving in the big wedge
They're driving in
They're driving in the big wedge (big wedge)
I'm talking about the big wedge
I'm talking about the big wedge
Talking about the big wedge
They're driving in
They're driving in the ...
