lyrics

Bobby wanted a twinkie
But he didn’t have a penny
So he took a gun to the quickie-mart
And walked out with many

Sayin’ hey, alright, come on
See if you can dance with these shoes on
Ain’t life grand, being an American

Bobby walked over to Betty
Betty thought he was pretty
Bobby’s baby she did carry
She wanted them to get married

Sayin’ hey, alright, come on
See if you can dance with these shoes on
Ain’t life grand, being an American

Well there’s an angel in some broken shoes
She dropped a heel on a manhole on the avenue
And the homeless laugh and the rich folk cry
Ain’t it good to be alive

I was born near the city
But I’d rather live in the country
Some day I’ll drive a Ferrari
But right now a dented Chevy

Sayin’ hey, alright, come on
See if you can dance with these shoes on
Ain’t life grand, being an American

And Bobby spend the rest of his days
At peace in San Diego singing
Ain’t life grand, being an American
Ain’t life grand, being an American
