born and raised from immigrant blood made a hardworking man out of me the code i live by is the honor and honesty what i learned was passed down from the ghosts of my family lessons learned long before they came from accross the sea (chorus) friendship in struggle, courage in battle, wisdom in rage ardor in labor, piety in love, knowledge is sage (x2) sacrafice don't always have a reward courage is something you can't afford pittsburgh steel in my fathers eye gave me the will to win and the guts to try he showed no weakness not even a trace 'til he broke his fist on my face he went from us steel to mit i cherish what my parents taught to me: (chorus) when im older ill raise a family i'll give them the substance that tempered me they taught me the meaning of being the best i can they raised me to be a true american (chorus)
