(Back in the USA by Chuck Berry, as done by the Modern Lovers, 1, 2, 1, 2, 3)

Oh well, oh well, I feel real good today,
You see we touched ground on an international runway
Jet propelled back home, to the USA

New York, Los Angeles, you know that I yearned for you
And Detroit, Chicago, and Chattanooga, Baton Rouge
Not to mention me at home in Boston Massachussets

(I'll tell you somethin)

Now Did I miss the skyscrapers, and the long freeway?
From the coast of California to the shores of the Delaware Bay
Oh yes I did, till I got back to the USA

(Rock a while, let's go)

Well take me to a drive-in, take me to a corner café
Where hamburgers sizzle on an open griddle night and day
I wanna see a juke-box jump with records in the USA

(Let's talk about it)

You see, I'm so glad I was brought up in the USA, oh yea
I'm so glad I'm livin' in the USA, its true
What you want, we got right back in the USA

(Look out )

Just take me to a drive-in, any little corner café
I wanna hear hamburgers sizzle on an open griddle night and day
I wanna see a juke-box jump with records in the USA

Let's go
Well, I'm so glad I'm livin' in the USA, oh yea
well. I'm so glad I was brought up in the USA, I am
cause what you want, what you want, it's here in the USA
