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

[Chorus]
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
Cause so few live in the U.S.A
At least the foreigners can copy our morality
They can visit but they cannot stay
Only precious few can garner the prosperity
It makes us walk with renewed confidence
We’ve got a place to go when we die
And the architect resides right here

[Chorus]
We’ve got the American Jesus
Bolstering national faith
We’ve got the American Jesus
Overwhelming millions every day

[Instrumental]

He’s the farmer’s barren fields
(In God)
The force the army wields
(We trust)
The expression on the faces of the starving millions
(Because he’s one of us)

The power of the man
(Breakdown)
He’s the fuel that drives the Klan
(Cave in)
He’s the motive and conscience of the murderer
(He can redeem your sin)

He’s the preacher on T.V
(Strong heart)
The false sincerity
(Clear mind)
The form letter that’s written by the big computers
(And infinitely kind)

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)

[Chorus]
Yeah, 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
Overwhelming millions every day

[Outro]
(One nation under God)
(One nation under God)
(One nation under God)
(One nation under God)
(One nation under God)
(One nation under God)
(One nation under God)
(One nation under God)
(One nation under God)
(One nation under God)
