I don't drive a Mercedes Benz, and I
Don't desire to own one
I'd sooner watch a flower grow than the latest from
Sylvester Stallone

I don't have me a country club membership
I ride the Greyhound bus
I don't have a cabin two hours north of here
I don't celebrate Christmas

But it's my country too
Sometimes I gotta remind myself
It's my country too
I pay my taxes
Vote on election day
I stop at stop signs just like you

I have never burned an American flag
If I did it was an accident
I have never dropped a bomb or defaced the
Washington Monument

But you won't find a flag on my doorstep
On the Fourth of July
Too many criminals try to wrap themselves inside of it
It stands for too many lies

But it's my country too
Sometimes I gotta remind myself
It's my country too
I pay my taxes
Vote on election day
I stop at stop signs just like you

My country 'tis of thee
Sweet land of liberty
My country 'tis of thee
Sweet land of liberty
My country 'tis of thee
Sweet land of liberty

If I say it enough times
Maybe I'll remember what it means
If I say it enough times
Maybe I'll remember what it means

Don't try to tell me
For once listen to me
Don't try to tell me
For once listen to me

'Cause it's my country too
Sometimes I gotta remind myself
It's my country too
I pay my taxes
Vote on election day
I stop at stop signs just like you

It's my country too
Sometimes I gotta remind myself
It's my country too
I pay my taxes
Vote on election day
I stop at stop signs just like you
