Well, I used to work the graveyard
Used to have to paint the stones
Now I clean the farmyard
Have to lick it clean alone

I got a wife and kid
Sharin' an econoline
We keep the sucker hid
Underneath the Hollywood sign

You know I do alright
Oh yeah, and it's okay
I'd like to kill the light
I'd love to sleep all day

Livin' in a dream
Livin' in the U.S.A.
Livin' in a dream
Livin' in the U.S.A.

And I used to have a penthouse
I used to have a wife like you
Now I keep the door locked
Her attorney's tryin' to break in to

Everyone's aboard
It's quite the social set
And they leave me Polaroids
Of everyone I never met

You know they do alright
It's the all American way
They like to stay all night
Oh, they love to drink all day

Livin' in a dream
Livin' in the U.S.A.
Livin' in a dream
Livin' in the U.S.A.

Purple mountain majesty
Crumble into the sea
Spirit of the spacious skies
Shine your grace on me

Livin' in a dream
Livin' in the U.S.A.
Livin' in a dream
Livin' in the U.S.A.

Livin' in a dream
Livin' in the U.S.A.
Livin' in a dream
I'm livin' in the U.S.of A.
