"Real American" as written by Rick Derringer and Bernard Kenny....
I am a real American fight for the rights of every man
I'm a real American
Fight for what's right fight for your life

When it comes crashing down and it hurts inside
You gotta take a stand
It don't hurt to hide
If you hurt my friends then you hurt my pride I gotta be a man I can't let it slide

I am a real American fight for the rights of every man
I'm a real American
Fight for what's right fight for your life

I feel strong about right and wrong
I don't take trouble for very long
I've got something deep inside of me courage is the thing that sets us free

I am a real American fight for the rights of every man
I'm a real American
Fight for what's right fight for your life

I am a real American fight for the rights of every man
I'm a real American
Fight for what's right fight for your life

If you hurt my friends then you hurt my pride I gotta be a man I can't let
It slide

I am a real American fight for the rights of every man
I'm a real American
Fight for what's right fight for your life

I am a real American fight for the rights of every man
I'm a real American
Fight for what's right fight for your life

I am a real American fight for the rights of every man
I'm a real American
Fight for what's right fight for your life

I am a real American fight for the rights of every man
I'm a real American
Fight for what's right fight for your life

    General CommentHulk hogan was and is going to be the best wrestler ever... and HBK is going to die at summer slam... sorry about that lol... love wrestling. I remember growing up watching the cartoons he made and i had almost every product made for Hulk Hogan i remember having his back pack in grade 1 and 2 and having his bandana, and having a little stuffed thing that i always used to fight with and i still got like 20 differant toys of him... hes a god... but this song to me means... dont be ashamed of what you are stand up for what you are... and if you stand down your making us look bad... the song seems too countryish to me till the chours.

    Lyric CorrectionLove this song. But you have some of the lyrics down incorrectly. Below are the correct lyrics.


    "Real American" - Rick Derringer

    When it comes crashing down it hurts inside
    You gotta take a stand it don't help to hide
    If you hurt my friends then you hurt my pride
    I gotta be a man I can't let it slide

    I am a Real American
    Fight the rights of everyman
    I am a Real American
    Fight for what's right
    Fight for your life

    I feel strong about right and wrong
    And I don't take trouble for very long
    I got something deep inside of me
    Courage is the thing that keeps us free

    Chorus x2
    (music break)

    If you hurt my friends then you hurt my pride
    I gotta be a man I can't let it slide

    Chorus x3
    (to music fade out)
