Oh well, oh well, I feel real good today,
You see We touched ground on an international runway
Jet propelled back home, to the usa

New York, Los Angeles, you know that I yearned for you
And Detroit, Chicago, and Chattanooga, Baton Rouge
Not to mention me at home in Boston Massastu-sus

(I'll tell you somethin)

Now Did I miss the skyscrapers, and the long freeway?
From the coast of California to the shores of the Delaware Bay
Oh yes I did, till I got back to the usa

(rock a while, let's go)

Well take me to a drive-in, take me to a corner cafe
Where hamburgers sizzle on an open griddle night and day
I wanna see a juke-box jump with records in the usa

(let's talk about it)

You see, I'm so glad I was brought up in the usa, oh yea
I'm so glad I'm livin' in the usa, its true
What you want, we got right back in the usa

??? look out

Just take me to a drive-in, any little corner cafe
I wanna hear hamburgers sizzle on an open griddle night and day
I wanna see a juke-box jump with records in the usa

Let's go

Well, I'm so glad I'm livin' in the usa, oh yea
Well. I'm so glad I was brought up in the usa, I am
'Cause what you want, what you want, it's here in the usa

Back In The U.S.A. Lyrics

Jonathan Richman – Back In The U.S.A. Lyrics

Oh well, oh well, I feel real good today,
You see We touched ground on an international runway
Jet propelled back home, to the usa

New York, Los Angeles, you know that I yearned for you
And Detroit, Chicago, and Chattanooga, Baton Rouge
Not to mention me at home in Boston Massastu-sus

(I'll tell you somethin)

Now Did I miss the skyscrapers, and the long freeway?
From the coast of California to the shores of the Delaware Bay
Oh yes I did, till I got back to the usa

(rock a while, let's go)

Well take me to a drive-in, take me to a corner cafe
Where hamburgers sizzle on an open griddle night and day
I wanna see a juke-box jump with records in the usa

(let's talk about it)

You see, I'm so glad I was brought up in the usa, oh yea
I'm so glad I'm livin' in the usa, its true
What you want, we got right back in the usa

??? look out

Just take me to a drive-in, any little corner cafe
I wanna hear hamburgers sizzle on an open griddle night and day
I wanna see a juke-box jump with records in the usa

Let's go

Well, I'm so glad I'm livin' in the usa, oh yea
Well. I'm so glad I was brought up in the usa, I am
'Cause what you want, what you want, it's here in the usa
