"America's Suitehearts" is a song by American rock band Fall Out Boy and the second single taken from their fourth studio album, Folie à Deux (2008). Initially released to iTunes in promotion before the album's release, "America's Suitehearts" was later serviced to radio on January 20, 2009. A demo/snippet titled "America's Sweethearts" was included on the band's mixtape, Welcome to the New Administration, as part of their viral campaign in promotion of their record. The music video was unveiled at 3PM on January 1, 2009 on The N. Bassist/lyricist Pete Wentz commented that the song was about society's fixation with celebrities. The music was composed by vocalist/guitarist Patrick Stump.

The song has been performed on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, at the MTV Inaugural Celebration and in February 2009 on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

The song debuted at No. 44 in late December 2008 in Australia on the ARIA Singles Chart, and in early 2009 reached its peak of No. 26, becoming the seventh consecutive top 30 single for Fall Out Boy in that region. "America's Suitehearts" also debuted at No. 78 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States, and received minor pop radio airplay to reach No. 30 on Pop Songs but failed to place on Alternative Songs. It peaked at No. 76 on the UK Singles Chart.

LyricsEdit

You could have knocked me out with a feather
I know you've heard this all before but we're just hell's neighbors
Why, why, why won't the world revolve around me?
In my dreams trees grow all over the streets

But I don't know much about classic cars
But I've got of friends stuck on classic coke
Down, set, one, hut, hut, hike, Media Blitz

Let's hear it for America's sweethearts
But I must confess, I'm in love with my own sins
Let's hear it for America's sweethearts
But I must confess, I'm in love with my own sins

You can bow and pretend that
You don't, don't know you're a legend, oh
Time, time, time hasn't told anyone else yet
Let my love loose again

But I don't know much about classic cars
But I've got of friends stuck on classic coke
Down, set, one, hut, hut, hike, Media Blitz

Let's hear it for America's sweethearts
But I must confess, I'm in love with my own sins
Let's hear it for America's sweethearts
But I must confess, I'm in love with my own sins

You could have knocked me out with a feather
I know you've heard this all before

Let's hear it for America's sweethearts
But I must confess, I'm in love with my own sins
Let's hear it for America's sweethearts
But I must confess, I'm in love with my own sins
Sweetie let's hear it, oh let's hear it
Sweetie let's hear it, oh let's hear it
Sweethearts, sweethearts
