lyrics

Chorus:
Let the American Boy live
I was born American
Let the American Boy live
I was born American
Let the American Boy live
I was born American
Let the American Boy live
I was born American

Verse 1:
One nation under god is what they tell us
Yet they claim that we all have freedom of religion
During tragedy is the only time god is referenced
But they hide him well while they’re cheating on their wives just sexin

Hook:
That doesn’t make any sense to me
The US just can’t seem to think straight
The US won’t ever accept gays
Because god is their hiding-place

Chorus:
Let the American Boy live
I was born American
Let the American Boy live
I was born American
Let the American Boy live
I was born American
Let the American Boy live
I was born American

Verse 2:
What a bunch of hypocrisy
Man how this country isn’t democracy
It might as well be a dictatorship
I’m so fuckin sick of this god damn shit

Hook:
That doesn’t make any sense to me
The US just can’t seem to think straight
The US won’t ever accept gays
Because god is their hiding-place

Chorus:
Let the American Boy live
I was born American
Let the American Boy live
I was born American
Let the American Boy live
I was born American
Let the American Boy live
I was born American

Bridge:
How will the US ever be able to free gays
When they warship a book that bans homosexuality
The US can’t think straight
They’re full of major hate
The US wont accept gays
Just as much as god fits their taste

Chorus:
Let the American Boy live
I was born American
Let the American Boy live
I was born American
Let the American Boy live
I was born American
Let the American Boy live
I was born American

Link:
How will the US ever free gays
When they warship a book that bans homo-sodomy
How will the US ever free gays
God is the cure for all of their shame
How will the US ever free gays
When they warship a book that bans homo-sodomy
How will the US ever free gays
God is the cure for all of their shame
