lyrics

Uptight people trying to tell me how to live life
Nobody asked if I was alright
I'm not i'm dying to be someone can work to feed their family
And not at the mercy of frivolity of changing markets

So if you feel left out
If you're feeling overworked and underpaid
Nothing's working out?
Well don't look at me
You can thank the American Dream

Move on down the line so I can use my coupon
A bucket of french fries and a big gun
I ain't taking chances

So if you feel left out
If you're feeling overworked and underpaid
Nothing's working out?
Well don't look at me
You can thank the American Dream

I got no reasons now to weigh me down
I know my rights and you can't have em
Now could someone help me off the couch?

So if you feel left out
If you're feeling overworked and underpaid
Nothing's working out?
Well don't look at me
You can thank the American Dream
