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
