(Lardie, Niven, Russell)

Well I used to work the graveyard
Used to have to paint the stones
Now I clean the farmyard
Have to lick it clean alone

I got a wife and kid
Sharin' an econoline
We keep the sucker hid
Underneath the Hollywood sign

You know I do all right
Oh yea and it's ok
I'd like to kill the light
I'd love to sleep all day

Livin' in a dream
Livin' in the U.S.A.
Livin' in a dream
Livin' in the U.S.A.

Then I used to have a penthouse
Used to have a wife like you
Now I keep the door locked
Her attorney's tryin' to break in too

Everyone's aboard
It's quite the social set
They leave me polaroids
Of everyone I never met

You know they do all right
It's the All-American way
They like to stay all night
The love to drink all day

Livin' in a dream
Livin' in the U.S.A.
Livin' in a dream
Livin' in the U.S.A.

Purple mountain majesty
Crumble into the sea
Spirit of the spacious skies
Shine your grace on me

Livin' in a dream
Livin' in the U.S.A.
Livin' in a dream
Livin' in the U.S.A.
