I don’t need to be a global citizen Because I’m blessed by nationality I’m a member of a growing populace We enforce our popularity There are things that seem to pull us under And there are things that drag us down But there’s a power and a vital presence That’s lurking all around
We’ve got the American Jesus See him on the interstate We’ve got the American Jesus He helped build the president’s estate
I feel sorry for the earth’s population ‘cuz so few live in the USA At least the foreigners can copy our morality They can visit but they cannot stay Only precious few can garner our prosperity It makes us walk with renewed confidence We’ve got a place to go when we die And the architect resides right here
We’ve got the American Jesus Bolstering national faith We’ve got the American Jesus Overwhelming millions every day
He’s the farmer’s barren fields (in God) The force the army wields (we trust) The expressions in the faces of the starving millions (because he’s one of us) The power up above (break down) He’s the fuel that drives the clan (cave in) He’s the motive and the conscience of the murderer (he can redeem your sins) He’s the preacher on TV (strong heart) The false sincerity (clear mind) The form letters that’s written by the big computers (and infinitely kind) He’s the nuclear bombs (you lose) The kids with no moms (we win) And I’m fearful that he’s inside me (he is our champion!)
We’ve got the American Jesus See him on the interstate. (We’ve got the American Jesus) We’ve got the American Jesus Exercising his authority!
We’ve got the American Jesus Bolstering national faith, (We’ve got the American Jesus) We’ve got the American Jesus Overwhelming millions every day
