When it comes crashing down and it hurts inside
you gotta take a stand it don't help to hide
if you hurt my friends then you hurt my pride
i gotta be a man
i cant let it slide

Chorus
I am a real American
fight for the rights of every man
I am a real American
fight for what's right
fight for your life

I feel strong about right and wrong
and i don't take trouble for very long
Ive got something deep inside of me
courage is the thing that keeps us free

Repeat chorus x 2

If you hurt my friends then you hurt my pride
I gotta be a man i cant let it slide

Repeat chorus x 4 til fade
