Lyrics

 

My grandpa told me when I was a child

Love her or leave her he said as he smiled

Show me another place in this great big old world

Where it doesn’t matter about your race

Or if your hair is straight or curled

‘Cause when you fly the red, white and blue

I get tears in my eyes and I think of me and you as Americans

Well, I’m proud to say I’m an unhyphenated American

It doesn’t matter how I pray or where I come from

Yeah, I love this land of opportunity

There’s freedom here for you and me

I’m proud to say I’m an unhyphenated American

Hey now, you might not look like me

You may dress strange and talk funny

And you just might have a life that’s been hard

And you may have far too many cars

Parked in your front yard

But when you fly the red, white and blue

I get tears in my eyes and I think of me and you as Americans

Well, I’m proud to say I’m an unhyphenated American

It doesn’t matter how I pray or where I come from

Yeah, I love this land of opportunity

There’s freedom here for you and me

I’m proud to say I’m an unhyphenated American

I’m an American, one nation under God

Don’t need a hyphenation, don’t need a wink or a nod

‘Cause I’m an American and that’s good enough for me

Part of the greatest nation that this world has ever seen

Well, I’m proud to say I’m an unhyphenated American

It doesn’t matter how I pray or where I come from

Yeah, I love this land of opportunity

There’s freedom here for you and me

I’m proud to say I’m an unhyphenated American

I’m proud to say I’m an unhyphenated American

I’m proud to say I’m an unhyphenated American
