I was sitting'
Safe inside my bedroom walls
it wasn't 1990 at all
but the future scene to be
just floatin' and everyday seem like the last
I think I'm livin' in the past
The other half move too fast

Gimme thin girl, thin TV
Ice watch, ice coffee
Malt liquor, malt ice cream
I need a condo in the country
White fence 'round the city
Don't it pay to be so free?

'Cause I'm a Son of an American
Thats no lie
Sun's brighter than its ever been
Why Ain't I?
'Cause Im a Son of an American
That's Why

Don't wanna hear about it ever again.

Take me out to the ball game
I want to sit in the stands and scream
I wanna root for the losing team
Like that day
The stadium was Shea
And I lived in a rally cap
And the underdog would say

I'm a Son of an American

I tried and tried but I can't hide
What I am as an American
And all the kids overseas
Can't never know freedom like me

'Cause I'm a Son of an American
