Someone check on America
I think she might be sick
I don’t know who brought her here
Gave her pills, filled her with beer
It certainly wasn’t a friend
Someone check on America

Someone check on America
She’s passed out on the bed
A line formed outside so quick
It’s not hard to do the arithmetic
To see she’s in real trouble
Someone check on America

Someone check on America
I think she has been raped
I heard a scream come from upstairs
No one noticed or seemed to care
Their heads were in their phones
Someone check on America

Someone check on America
I think she might be dead
Her body lies within a ditch
Burned in case somebody snitched
What could I have done?
Someone check on America
Someone please check on America
