"Joe" as written by and Jude Anthony/green Cole....
I go to church on Sunday morning
Come home and beat my wife
My name is Joe, and you know me
I've lived here all of my life
What a life

I've got this pain I cannot speak of
I'm not so bad as people say
Got two kids who look like angels
But sometimes, sometimes I wish they'd fly away

[Chorus]
Life is good, you know we're lucky
Living in the U.S.A.
We've got everything we ever dreamed of
Darlin' I don't know why
I don't know why I act this way

My next door neighbor's got a problem
He works hard, it don't seem fair
His wife's a teacher at the grade school
And we've been having this affair

I've been a son, I've been a soldier
I've thrown the football in the rain
The blood of murderers and millionaires is pounding
Pounding through my veins

[Chorus]
But life is good, you know we're lucky
Living in the U.S. of A.
And we got everything we ever dreamed of
Baby I don't know why
I don't know why I act this way

When Kennedy was in the white house
We were children in the sun
Smokin' candy cigarettes
Cowboys and Indians with wooden guns

Some nights I go down to the basement
With thoughts I do not understand
A purple heart and a loaded pistol
And I just hold 'em
Hold 'em in my hands

[Chorus]
Life is good, you know we're lucky
Cause baby this is the U.S.A.
And we got everything we ever dreamed of
Darlin' I don't know why
No, I don't know why I act this way
I don't know why I act this way
