Living in the USA We’re living in the USA We’re living in the USA We’re living in the USA Skipping stones with Huckleberry Finn And were singing in the church with Martin Luther King Let’s hit the road and never look back Let’s ride with Chuck Berry in his coffee coloured Cadillac We’re living in the USA Can we say what we want to say We’re living in the USA Stars and stripes and eagles flying When I close my eyes I can hear you crying I see lovers on a giant screen Now we’re streaming The American dream. We’re living in the USA Can I pray to who I wanna pray We’re living in the USA I see a man salute the flag I see a man he’s dressed in drag She believes in equality for me and you and me you I don’t want to be alone I want somewhere where I belong We’re living in the USA We’re living in the US of A Can we stay where we want to stay? We’re living in the US of A We’re living in the US of A

You may be an ambassador to England or France You may like to gamble, you might like to dance You may be the heavyweight champion of the world You may be a boy who wants to be a girl You got to serve somebody, yes Indeed you're gonna have to serve somebody Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord But you gotta serve somebody You might be a rockstar dancing on the stage You might have drugs at your command, women in a cage You might own guns and you might even own tanks You might be somebody's landlord, you might even own banks You gotta serve somebody, yes Indeed you're gonna have to serve somebody Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord But you gotta serve somebody Might like to wear cotton, might like to wear silk Might like to drink whiskey, might like to drink milk You might like to eat caviar, you might like to eat bread You may be sleeping on the floor, sleeping in a king-sized bed You gotta serve somebody, yes Indeed you're gonna have to serve somebody Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord But you gotta serve somebody
