“¡Let Freedom Ring!”

American Man (LYRICS)

American Man

Up on the mound

With the Orange Alert

And the New Wave sounds

American Man

In the laundry pile

With the rain-check claims

And the skateboard child

Like a shadow in the darkness

In a plot full of holes

I'm a hometown guy

And a foreign spy

Back on the street

Up for parole

Torn like a page

From the book of the damned

I'm your American man

American Man

Three times your size

With blood on my lips and

Milk in my eyes

American Man

With a gun in his brain

On a blood-stained sheet

In the Macy's parade

Like a king with a kingdom

In a room without a view

We're gonna bang a gong

Let's get it on

But you're dry as a bone

And I'm all over you

Folded like a page

From the book of the damned

I'm your American Man

American Man

American Man

In the Georgetown Bars

With the Prozac kids

And the Oliver Stones

And the tabloid smiles
