Stephen Colbert – My Kind Of America lyrics

Gather ‘round, everybody, do you feel the feelin’?
There’s a rumblin’ kinda whisper, universally appealin’
It’s steeped in our traditions, but totally brand new
It’s made for you and us and me, and even me and you

My kind of America
It’s my favorite USA
My kind of America
And freedom made it that way

Gonna make this country stronger ’til it’s number one for damned sure
Every state is extra great from Texas to New Hampshire
Blue jeans and rock ’n’ roll, trucks and apple pie
Don’t forget ol' Uncle Sam, why did he have to die?

He died for...
My kind of America
It’s my favorite USA
My kind of America
Put your foot on a bale of hay

Single moms and workin' dads, farmers and their hogs
Pillow fights and hard-hat guys, veterans and dogs
Roll up your shirt sleeves and get your game face on
Just like Betsy Ross when she built the Pentagon

Blue collar, white collar, Doogie Howser, silver dollar
I Love Lucy, I Like Ike, marriage rights and Dick Van Dyke
Quaker Oats, pig roasts, motor boats and root beer floats
Moon shiners, title fights, football spikes, Bagel Bites

Hip hop, mom and pop, Rosa Parks and truck stops
Sunny D, the P.T.A., a honeymoon in Reno
Pop-n-lock, crock pot, flip flops and halter tops
Did I ever mention how much I love Latinos?

My Kind of America
It’s my favorite USA
My kind of America
And that’s all I’ve got to say

Except for...
My kind of America
It’s the ultimate big tent
My kind of America
At the next campaign event
