lyrics

I was born at 6AM to a lovely lady and a hopeful man
I grew up in this promised land
A privilege they taught me to understand
And when bands marched by on the Fourth of July
We'd salute the flag with a gleam in our eyes
Hands full of candy, heart full of pride
The world belonged to me
And everything I hoped for as I became a man
was Everything American

CHORUS
Everything American
I am strong, I belong to this great land
Everything American
Cause it's more than a flag that makes her grand
I can live my life, chase my dreams
Find me a wife and make a family
Do anything, I believe I can
And be Everything American

Now I'm grown and on my own
Got the girl of my dreams and a place to call home
We fell in love back in '93
When she came to the States with her family
And our children can live in peace
Don't need to live in fear
We're free to speak what we believe
A freedom we hold dear
We cast our vote with passion
We work and dream and plan
We're Everything American

CHORUS
Everything American
We are strong, we belong to this great land
Everything American
Cause it's more than a flag that makes her grand
We'll live our lives and chase our dreams
Show the whole world what American means
We'll wear it proud like our Uncle Sam
For Everything American

(Instrument solo)

And I'll give my life to keep her free
Show the whole world what American means
And I'll stand proud because I give a damn
For Everything American
