Straight outta school but still just a fool
Thought the streets were paved with gold
He moved off the block and found he was lost
In a world hed never known

He had to hustle so he could pay the rent
Played all the aces and wound up president
You see, its okay, got to find your own way, keep on trying all day
And you know your time will come, youll get your chance to run

Youre livin in America
Youre livin in the home of the dream
Youre livin in America
Just make it what you want it to be

Soap opera child with hope in her eyes lookin for a starrin role
She came into town and acted the clown, had a long, long way to go
Waitin on tables and pumpin gasoline, [unverified]
Now shes a movie queen

You see its okay, got to find your own way
Keep on tryin all day
And you know the time will come
For each and everyone

Youre livin in America
Youre livin in the home of the dream
Youre livin in America
Just make it what you want it to be

Youll stand alone on a long hard road
With a crowd that you cant see
Just start by steppin out
Then let your mind run free

Youre livin in America
Youre livin in the home of the dream
Youre livin in America
Just make it what you want it to be

Its okay, youre livin in the U.S.A
Find your dream, you know that dream can set you free
Its okay, were part of the United States
You and me can be just what we wanna be

Hes okay, he left the block and reached the top
Shes all right, the agent put her name in lights
Hes okay, hes paid his rent, hes president
Shes all right, shes on your TV screen tonight
