Steve Miller Band – Living In The U.S.A. lyrics

Stand back, stand back
Stand back, stand back

Stand back, stand back
Stand back, stand back

Doot do do do do doot doot
Living in the U. S. A.
Doot do do do do doot doot
Living in the U. S. A.

Where are you goin' to
What are you gonna do
Do you think that it will be easy
Do you think that it will be pleasin', hey

Stand back, what'd you say
Stand back, I won't pay
Stand back, I'd rather play
Stand back

It's my freedom
Ah, don't worry 'bout me, babe
I got to be free, babe
Hey

Doot do do do do doot doot
Living in the U. S. A.
Doot do do do do doot doot
Living in the U. S. A.

Stand back, dietician
Stand back, television
Stand back, politician
Stand back, mortician

Oh, we got to get away
Living in the U. S. A.
Come on baby, Owwww

I see a yellow man, a brown man
A white man, a red man
Lookin' for Uncle Sam
To give you a helpin' hand
But everybody's kickin' sand
Even politicians
We're living in a plastic land
Somebody give me a hand, yeah

Oh, we're gonna make it, baby
Oh, we're going to shake it, baby
Oh, don't break it
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Come on baby, hey
Hey, hey
In the U. S. A., babe yeah

Doot do do do do doot doot
Living in the U. S. A.
Don't worry 'bout me, babe
Doot do do do do doot doot
Living in the U. S. A.
Living in the U. S. A.
Doot do do do do doot doot
Living in the U. S. A.
I got to be free
Doot do do do do doot doot
Living in the U. S. A.
Come on try it, you can buy it, you can leave it next week, yeah
Somebody give me a cheeseburger

    This is a song about this country beginning to lose its soul to corporate America. It's basically saying that the only sure things in life are death and politics - not necessarily in that order.
