How did I get there, what did I do
Living on welfare with nothing to lose
The bills were all past due, no reason to try
My dreams were shattered, no hope in sight

These were the questions that troubled me so
'Til I found the courage to stand on my own

Now I'm a born again American living in the land of the free
I'm free to learn, free to earn, free to be all I can be
No more taking from Uncle Sam
Cause I'm a born again American

I turned off the bad news, rolled up my sleeves
I found the answers waiting for me
There's nothing like hard work to strengthen your soul
No looking back now, I'm ready to roll

Nobody said it'd be easy to do
If I can do it, you can too, you can too

Now I'm a born again American living in the land of the free
I'm free to learn, free to earn, free to be all I can be
No more taking from Uncle Sam
Cause I'm a born again American

Whoever you are these words are true
If I can do it, you can too, you can too

Now I'm a born again American living in the land of the free (we're free)
I'm free to learn, free to earn, free to be all I can be (all I can be)
No more taking from Uncle Sam
Cause I'm a born again American
Yeah I'm a born again American
