lyrics

I was born an American I think about it a lot
I wonder how and why and when
To be born and American
I wonder what it means
Who am I and who are we and is this really alright?
To be born an American
Born an American
Born an American

But I was born an American
A place to call my home
A microcosm of the world
And this place called America
Well you hear about it a lot
Politicians with big ambitions
For that we've fought
fought and fought

Born an American
I was born an American
Born an American

Oh say can you see if nation might be wrong
Oh tis of thee that I've wondered far too long
Is it a dream that's just a dream thats just a dream
In a world we don't belong
Do we belong?
Do we belong?
Do we belong?

Born an American
Born an American
Born an American
