"Breakfast in America" is the title track from Supertramp's 1979 album of the same name. It was a minor hit on the singles charts in the US but was a Top 10 hit in the UK.
The song was written by Roger Hodgson before Supertramp were formed, during his late teens, but is jointly credited to him and his bandmate/songwriting partner Rick Davies. Davies wanted Hodgson to re-write the by-then over a decade old lyrics, but Hodgson refused, feeling that they were too intrinsic to the song and captured the innocence of his adolescence. The lyrics tell about a person who has never been to America and fantasises about it.
