I'm An American

Music and lyrics by Donovan P. Leitch & Julian Jones


I'm a soldier, I'm a sailor
I'm a wise man, I'm a fool
I'm a farmer, I'm a scholar
Yet I've never been to school
I was born on the Bayou
I worked on Capitol Hill
My skin is multi-coloured
And my hero is a dollar bill

I'm an American
And I live in the promised land
And I'm doin' all I can
To be an American

I'm a bank in Ohio
I'm a killer on the loose
I'm a dead-beat in a diner
And I kinda like the juice
I'm a dreamer, I'm a talk show
I'm a kid in trouble-town
And I wanna be the best I can be
When the bullshit comes down

I'm an American
And I live in the promised land
And I'm doin' all I can
To be an American

I'm a saint, I'm a sinner
I'm a-really just like you
I'm a melting pot of nations
False and sometimes true
I'm looking for the answer
To the TV-Quiz of life
I wanna know the secret
Of eternal youth and strife

I'm an American
And I live in the promised land
And I'm doin' all I can
To be an American

I'm a child of the future
I'm a victim of the past
And I wanna be a part of
The things that never last
I'm a hitman, I'm a Buddha
I'm a Wrigley's Spearment Gum
I'm an MTV, I'm a K-Mart store
I'm an indian shaman's drum

I'm an American
And I live in the promised land
And I'm doin' all I can
To be an American

I'm a father, I'm a mother
I'm a skyscraper on speed
I'm a-only me when I wanna be
When I kinda feel the need
I'm a forest, I'm an ocean
I'm an island in the stream
I'm a king and I'm a beggar
Yeah, I'm a nightmare and a dream

I'm an American
And I live in the promised land
And I'm doin' all I can
To be an American
I'm an American
And I live in the promised land
And I'm doin' all I can
To be an American
