One of Supertramp's greates hits. Roger Hodgson live in concert with this song, which was released in 1979 as the first single from the album of the same name. The song had been written by Roger Hodgson even before Supertramp was formed, when he was only a teenager.

Watch him much younger, Breakfast in America, in concert with Supertramp.

Take a look at my girlfriend
She's the only one I got
Not much of a girlfriend
I never seemed to get a lot

Take a jumbo across the water
Like to see America
See the girls in California
I'm hopin' it's going to come true
But there's not a lot I can do.
Yeah

Could we have kippers for breakfast
Mummy dear, Mummy dear
They got to have 'em in Texas
'Cos everyone's a millionaire

I'm a winner, I'm a sinner
Do you want my autograph?
I'm a loser, what a joker
I'm playing my jokes upon you
While there's nothin' better to do
Yeah

Babadatam a dabdaban doo-dee-down dee-down
Babadatam a dabdaban doo-dee-down dee-down
Na na na, nana na na na nana

Don't you look at my girlfriend
She's the only one I got
Not much of a girlfriend
I never seem to get a lot

Take a jumbo cross the water
Like to see America
See the girls in California
I'm hoping it's going to come true
But there's not a lot I can do
Sing it!

Pababadow a papada doo-dee-down dee-down
Pababadow a papada doo-dee-down dee-down
Hey aham, hey aham
Hey aham, hey aham
Hey aham, hey aham
Hey aham, hey aham
Na na na, nana na na na nana













The lyrics tell about a person who has never been to America and fantasises about it, and that was really the case for him when he first wrote it. The boy dreams of going to America and becoming famous, and this song helped him achieve just that.
