Born in the U.S.A.
Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band Lyrics


Born down in a dead man's town
The first kick I took was when I hit the ground
End up like a dog that's been beat too much
'Til you spend half your life just to cover it up now

Born in the USA
I was born in the USA
I was born in the USA
Born in the USA now

Got in a little hometown jam
So they put a rifle in my hands
Sent me off to a foreign land
To go and kill the yellow man

Born in the USA
I was born in the USA
I was born in the USA
I was born in the USA

Come back home to the refinery
Hiring man said, "Son if it was up to me"
Went down to see my VA man
He said, "Son, don't you understand now?"
(Ok)
(No, no)
(No, no, no)

I had a brother at Khe Sanh
Fighting off all the Viet Cong
They're still there, he's all gone

He had a woman he loved in Saigon
I got a picture of him in her arms now

Down in the shadow of the penitentiary
Out by the gas fires of the refinery
I'm ten years burning down the road
Nowhere to run ain't got nowhere to go

Born in the USA
I was born in the USA now
Born in the USA
I'm a long gone Daddy in the USA now
Born in the USA
Born in the USA
Born in the USA
I'm a cool rocking Daddy in the USA now

(Oh, no)
(Oh, no, no, no)
(Oh, no, no)
(Oh, no, no, no)
Hey
(Oh, no, no)
Woo

@Ryan George Jacobs fine.

1700s = nobody is born in countries. everybody is free.

1800s = amendment says people are born in countries. freedom is limited.

1900s = birth certificates assign people to countries. alienation, imprisonment, or relocation according to bloodlines and birth certificates.

2000s = reject the 1900 birth certificates. reject the 1800s amendment.



Julia Couto

🇧🇷 Nascido nos E.U.A.

Nasci em uma cidade pequena
Comecei a apanhar da vida desde pequeno
Você acaba como um cachorro que apanhou muito
Até que gasta metade da sua vida apenas limpando a sua barra

Nascido nos E.U.A
Eu nasci nos E.U.A
Eu nasci nos E.U.A
Nascido nos E.U.A

Me meti numa pequena confusão em minha cidade natal
Então eles colocaram um fuzil na minha mão
Me enviaram para uma terra estrangeira
Para ir e matar o homem amarelo

Nascido nos E.U.A
Eu nasci nos E.U.A
Nascido nos E.U.A
Eu nasci nos E.U.A

Volto para casa, para a refinaria
O homem que contrata diz: Filho, se dependesse de mim
Mostrei para ele minha carteira de veterano de guerra
Ele disse: Filho, você não entende agora

Eu tinha um irmão em Khe Sahn, combatendo o Viet Cong
Eles continuam lá, ele morreu
Ele tinha uma mulher que amava em Saigon
Eu tenho uma foto dele nos braços dela agora

Debaixo da sombra da prisão
Ou perto das chamas de gás da refinaria
Estou há 10 anos sem rumo
Nada para fazer, nenhum lugar para ir

Nascido nos E.U.A
Eu nasci nos E.U.A
Nascido nos E.U.A
Eu sou um cara das antigas agora nos E.U.A

Nascido nos E.U.A
Nascido nos E.U.A
Nascido nos E.U.A

Eu sou um cara muito maneiro nos E.U.A agora

@eb kennedy the declaration of independence said that nobody is born in the usa: we're born in nature to nature's god, with equal station. every time people say "born in the usa," they are saying that the united states declaration of independence is meaningless.

birth certificates were introduced from abroad in the 1920s, pushing for inequality according to birth, through bloodline and territorial birthright discrimination.

now so many people are used to hearing "born in the usa," that they aren't even aware that they're destroying the very definition of the united states.

it's the very first thing that was said in the definition of our country! THE VERY FIRST PARAGRAPH! birth certificate holders need to stop harming natural born citizens and stop screaming "born in the usa."

it's not cool being refused to ride an interstate bus because of your natural birth or lack of artificial certification. it's not ok to be accepted to work, but then suddenly terminated because your natural birth status is discovered.

This is a protest about how poorly the Vietnam vets were treated upon their return to the States. And my brother's name is one of the 58,000 on the black granite wall in D.C.
