Ball of fire in the sky,
The sound of solid steel.
A flash of lightning,
Sounds so frightening,
When the power's all you feel.
From the leather of the fifties,
Murray The K and Alan Freed.
Monroe and James Dean,
Died for the silver screen,
And Elvis made them bleed.
Born in America.
Born in America.
You wanna see a movie star?
Hollywood or D.C.?
Politicians greed,
Money's all you need,
The power's guaranteed.
Vegas got the casinos,
And Texas, oil wells.
Got your Boston beans,
Got your Frisco Queens,
Anything that sells.
Born in America.
Born in America.
Land of the free.
Born in America.
Born in America.
Born in America.
Born in America.
Motor city, motown,
Chili-dogs and baseball.
Bluejeans and Coca-Cola,
Rock 'n' roll,
All born in America.
