Bebe Rexha - American Citizen Lyrics


[Verse 1]
If you were born here, it’s automatic
You got your membership right out of the gate
But if that ain’t you, yeah, it’s not too late
If you were born somewhere else and wanna make a life here
Gotta spend a few years and pass a test
Take an oath sayin’ you love this country the best

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh, I can see a day when we
Will celebrate, we’ll celebrate, we’ll celebrate as wе say

[Chorus]
I am, I am an American citizen
This ain’t just the placе I’m livin’ in
I got rights like electin’ the president
I am, I am an American citizen
Our foundation’s a nation of immigrants
I am an American citizen

[Post-Chorus]
Oh, oh
Oh, oh

[Verse 2]
We the, the people, come from all over the world
We believe that there’s nowhere better
We are strong when we stand together
And right now in a small-town courthouse, history is bein’ made
There’s freedom wellin’ up in someone’s eyes
‘Cause their dream is bein’ realized

[Pre-Chorus]
Today could be the day that we
We celebrate, we celebrate, we celebrate as we say

[Chorus]
I am, I am an American citizen
This ain’t just the place I’m livin’ in
I got rights like electin’ the president
I am, I am an American citizen
Our foundation’s a nation of immigrants
I am an American citizen

[Post-Chorus]
Oh, oh
Oh, oh
I am an American citizen
Oh, oh
Oh, oh (Ah yeah, yeah, yeah)

[Verse 3]
When you’re a citizen, you get the right to vote
And you can speak your mind, whatever floats your boat
You can petition for close family members
To come and live here and be together
You can run for office and lead your crew
But you got some responsibilities, too
Defend this country if there’s ever a need
Serve on a jury, front row seat
Support and defend the constitution
Taxes you pay are a contribution
For the freedom and liberty
My country, ’tis of thee

[Chorus]
I am (I am), I am (I am) an American citizen
This ain’t just the place I’m livin’ in
I got rights like electin’ the president
I am (I am), I am (I am) an American citizen
Our foundation’s a nation of immigrants
I am (I am) an American citizen

[Post-Chorus]
Oh (I am), oh (I am)
Oh, oh
I am an American citizen (I am)
Oh (I am), oh (I am)
Oh, oh
