Lyrics and chords: 

Intro: E, E, E, E 

E                  G 
  Sixteen military wives 
             A                               E   
  Thirty-two softly focused brightly colored eyes 
E                        G 
  Staring at the natural tan 
                A                                E 
  Of thirty-two gently clenching wrinkled little hands 
A                   B 
  Seventeen company men 
               C#               D            A 
  Out of which only twelve will make it back again 
E                            G 
  Seargeant sent a letter to five 
           A                                        E 
  Military wives, his tears drip down to ten little eyes 


B 
  Cheer them on to their rivals 
        A       E        A       E         B 
  Cause America can, and America can't say no 
      A       E        A       E         B 
  And America does, if America says it's so 
  B 
  It's so 
  ( D O N T   P L A Y   H E R E )         
  And the anchorperson on TV goes 
  E 
  La de da de da 


E                   G 
  Fifteen celebrity mimes 
                A                                 E 
  Leaving their fifteen sorted wretched checkered lives 
E                                G 
  Will they find the solution in time 
              A                                 E 
  Using their fifteen pristine moderate liberal minds 
A                  B 
  Eighteen academy chairs 
               C#         D           A 
  Out of which only seven really even care 
E                         G 
  Doling out a garment to five 
            A                                 E 
  Celebrity mimes, they're humbly taken by surprise 


B 
  Cheer them on to their rivals 
        A       E        A       E         B 
  Cause America can, and America can't say no 
      A       E        A       E         B 
  And America does, if America says it's so 
  B 
  It's so 
  ( D O N T   P L A Y   H E R E )         
  And the anchorperson on TV goes 
  E 
  La de da de da de di de di de da 
  E 
  La de da de da de di de di de da 


Bridge: E, G, A, E, E, G, A, E 


A                   B 
  Fourteen cannibal kings 
            C#               D                A 
  Wondering blindly what the dinner bell will bring 
E                   G 
  Fifteen celebrity mimes 
              A                             E 
  Served on a leafy bed of sixteen military wives 


B 
  Cheer them on to their rivals 
        A       E        A       E         B 
  Cause America can, and America can't say no 
      A       E        A       E         B 
  And America does, if America says it's so 
  B 
  It's so 
  ( D O N T   P L A Y   H E R E )         
  And the anchorperson on TV goes 
  E 
  La de da de da de di de di de da 
  E 
  La de da de da de di de di de da 
  E 
  La de da de da de di de di de da 
  E 
  De da de da de di de di de da 
  E 
  De da de da de di de di de da
