Born red, white, and blue
And not much hope
I’m pig tight and bull strong
I love beer for breakfast
And girls from Texas…

Are you?
Are you a Patriot?
A Patriot
Are you a Patriot?

Kick back, surf, and sand…..On Coco Beach
Live in a Russian sub, Moscow’s techno clubs
I live in Detroit, I live in Kandahar
I live in London, at your local pub
I live in ‘Frisco, in someone’s disco
I dig James Dean, and I love the country scene
Call me a Taoist, kids in Vietnam
The sands of Iwo Jima, are you my baby Tina?

I’m a patriot. Are you a patriot?
Are you a Patriot?


I’m a patriot!
But are you a patriot of the World?

My name’s Rodney King, things not what they seem
I wax and park your car, or maybe I’ll mow your yard
I’m in your karaoki bar, or might read the Bard
I live in outer space, or maybe I’m a flying ace
I could be a soccer fan, or live in Chicagoland
I’m a cop in Asia, sell CD’s in Malaysia

Are you a Patriot?


I’m a Patriot!
