America Your Head’s Too Big, امریکا ≠ مصر
Steely blue eyes with no love in them, scan the World,
And a humourless smile, with no warmth within, greets the world.
And I, I have got nothing, to offer you
No-no-no-no-no, just this heart deep and true, which you say you don’t need
The Morrissey lyric is completed with the line “Because America, Your belly is too big. And I love you, I just wish you‘d stay where you belong.” Indeed, there is a lesson for the United States in the recent uprisings in the Middle East, but it’s not how those movements can be co-opted for partisan American gains.
