Fortunate Son Submit Correct Lyrics

Some folks are born made to wave that flag
Ooh that red, white an' blue
And when they ask him, How I must shut up
Ooh they only ask for more an' more an' more an' more an'

It ain't me, it ain't me
I'm no fortunate one, yeah
It ain't me, it ain't me
I'm no fortunate son, no

Some folks are born silver spoon in hand
Lord don't they help themselves?
And when the tax man comes knockin' on the door
Ooh the house looks like a rummage sale, yeah

It ain't me, it ain't me
I'm no millionaires son, no
It ain't me, it ain't me
I'm no fortunate one, no no

Some folks are born star spangled eyes
Ooh they send you out to war
And when you ask him, 'How much should we give?'
Ooh they only ask for more an' more an' more an' more an' more

It ain't me, it ain't me
I'm no fortunate one, no
It ain't me, it ain't me
I'm no fortunate son, no

It ain't me, it ain't me
I'm no CIA son, no no
It ain't me, it ain't me
I'm no fortunate son
