lyrics

This is going out to my brothers in the new school
All the white boys with the dreads and the Korn tattoos
Because youth and friendship and Korn are forever

This is going out to my brothers in the old school
Rockin in their ratty denim jackets with the Kiss backpatches
Still drunk behind the bleachers nine years after the fact

God bless America.

God, God, God bless America
God, God, God bless America
God, God, God bless America now right now right NOW!

This is going out to my brothers in the small towns
Faces painted up for the big game, cheering in the pouring rain
This is for the kids mowing lawns and selling lemonade

This is going out to my brothers in the big, big city
Sipping tea at Barnes & Noble over deep conversation
Hoping all the hippie chicks don't notice that they're looking around

That's amore!

God, God, God bless America
God, God, God bless America
God, God, God bless America now right now right NOW!

This is for the single mothers sitting on their front porches
Chatting in the twilight, watching all the street lamps brighten
Over five little girls playing Double Dutch out in the street

This is for the waitresses slaving on the night shift at Denny's
And the off-duty cops sipping coffee at the counter
Next to the college freshman trying coffee for the very first time

Lots of milk and sugar, kid.

God, God, God bless America
God, God, God bless America
God, God, God bless America now right now right NOW!

This is for the big-haired ladies in the sports bars
Hitting on the Wall Street kids pimping like they've got expensive cars
Get her drunk enough and she won't notice it's a Nova

This is for the comic book girl that I once knew
Even though I never met another woman like you
I know it's a great big country and the odds are in my favor

This is going out to my brothers in the new school
All the white boys with the dreads and the Korn tattoos
Because youth is temporary, but the memory is forever

This is going out to my brothers in the old school
Rockin in their ratty denim jackets with the Kiss backpatches
Still drunk behind the bleachers nine years after the fact

God bless us anyway.

God, God, God bless us anyway
God, God, God bless us anyway
God, God, God bless us anyway now right now right now
That's an order!
God, God, God bless us anyway
God, God, God bless us anyway
God, God, God bless us anyway now right now right NOW NOW NOW NOW!

God bless America
God bless us, everyone
God bless us, anyone
God bless us anyway.
