I was raised in a small town,
Just a little Germanboy.
I did'nt care about history,
I just cared about my doors.
And I never felt responsable for what happend in any war.
They made me feel guilty even tough I was'nt born.

(Left town! )

Remember I was 18 when I heard the other call.
And I learned allot about killing men and drinking alcohol.
It was like a game for Cowboys - the good against the bad.
The others were the good guys, I was German - I was bad.

Ain't nothing wrong, to loving home.
Like anybody, in the world.
Yesterday's gone and we were wrong
To a new generation, singing the song!

I said Hey, I wanna be proud of my country.
Proud of theese poeple, proud to be free.
I said Hey, I wanna be proud of my country,
Proud I was born here, proud of Germany.

Well, I made this trip to Vegas,
With a friend of mine.
Some poeple heard we're German
And they called us nasty twie lines.
Do you think it's fear to blaim me,
For the things I've have'nt done?
So, tell how long, will this be going on?

I wanna know! This you will know,
That you are hurting me and my country.
Yesterday's gone and we were wrong,
To a new generation, witch founding it's home.

I said Hey, I wanna be proud of my country.
Proud of theese poeple, proud to be free.
I said Hey, I wanna be proud of my country,
Proud I was born here, proud of Germany.

Freedom of mine, freedom to speech,
Freedom to everyone, in the world.
Freedom today, freedom to teach.
Freedom of religion, and freedom to eat.
(Yes! )

(C'mon)

(Huah! )

I said Hey, I wanna be proud of my country.
Proud of theese poeple, proud to be free.
I said Hey, I wanna be proud of my country,
Proud I was born here, proud of Germany.

I said Hey, I wanna be proud of my country.
Proud of theese poeple, proud to be free.
I said Hey, I wanna be proud of my country,
Proud I was born here, proud of Germany.
