"Breakfast in America" is the title track from Supertramp's 1979 album "Breakfast in America". The song was a minor hit on the singles charts in the US but is a staple of classic rock radio. The song's lyrics tell about a person who has never been to America.

Gym Class Heroes version

In 2004 and 2006, Gym Class Heroes remade this song with Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy and entitled it "Cupid's Chokehold/Breakfast In America", borrowing heavily from Roger Hodgson’s famous chorus “"Take a look at my girlfriend, She's the only one I got. Not much of a girlfriend, Never seem to get a lot" & “"ba ba da da".In April 2008 ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers) honoured Hodgson for the song.
