Lyrics:
Can you tell me where I might find my friend and companion
Now he looks a little different from anything you’ve seen
He likes to beat the bass drum for justice and salvation
He’s got the brains of Einstein and the brawn of Mister Clean

He’s a lightnin’ flash who’ll make the dash from one coast to the other
To stop a crime or lend a dime or help his aging mother
Captain America we love you, Captain America you’re grand
Oh Spiro Agnew eat your heart out Captain America’s our man

Now he wears a mask his clothes are weird and some folks call him hokie
But he is hip he just can’t dig the okie from Muskogie

Captain will help anyone a friend or a stranger
Now number one without a gun he’s bypassed the Lone Ranger
He’s a do do good who loves apple pie and kisses little babies
He’ll guard you against everything from atom bombs to rabies

Captain America we love you, Captain America you’re grand
Oh Spiro Agnew eat your heart out Captain America’s our man

Can you tell me where I might find my friend and companion
He looks a little different from anything you’ve seen
He likes to beat the bass drum for justice and salvation
He’s got the brains of Einstein and the bod of Mister Clean

He’s a lightnin’ flash who’ll make the dash from one coast to the other
To stop a crime or lend a dime or help his aging mother

Captain America we love you, Captain America you’re grand

Oh Spiro Agnew eat your heart out Captain America’s our man
Captain America’s our man
