Amazing song about Amazing America – In the 1980’s

Holly Johnson, EX Frankie Goes to Hollywood lead singer, released this song in 1989 when I was 16 years old, this was not my kind of song back then, I was more into underground rave turnouts, my Partner on the other hand loved this and today I think it’s an amazing song. This song is what my 16 year old mind thought the USA was and I guess back in 1989 this song was true, America was land of the free, home of the brave and did amazing things. Today I think many with a brain and a mind of their own and who can also think and research will know the sad reality of the 2nd video below sent to me by an American friend called Anne, it is from the US Hit TV series the Newsroom. But this America, is how I grew up loving and knowing you, so please understand how my young mind went from the below video (Video 1) to today’s reality (Video 2). I am only ever asking questions America. Anyway, that aside, this is a SUPERB song I want to share with my American friends. Also I start singing lessons FOR REAL!!! Tomorrow, and this is one song I am learning to sing. 😀 Enjoy (I will be blogging my 1st singing session on Tuesday) Lyrics for this unreal good song below the 1st video

Lyrics:

There's a place where a kid without a cent
He can grow up to be president (to be president)
A magic kingdom filled with Barbie dolls
If you've got the time we can make it a good time.

Ah yeah.

Americanos - Blue Jeans and Chinos
Coke, Pepsi and Oreos - Americanos.
Movies and heroes in the land of the free
You can be what you wanna be.

They know how to advertise
Sell you anything at any price
Need it or not, that's what you got, yeah.
Take no bull from anyone
we just wanna have some fun
We got the Queen of Soul
created to Rock'n Roll
(Queen of soul)
Ah yeah!

Americanos - Blue Jeans and Chinos
Coke, Pepsi and Oreos - Americanos.
Low riding Chicanos in the land of the free
You can be what you wanna be.

Satellite stations across the nation
That's cable TV for you and me.
Cleaning kitchens, washing pots and pans
Everything's organized from crime to leisure time.
High schools and swimming pools, king sharks and fools.

Americanos - Blue Jeans and Chinos
Coke, Pepsi and Oreos - Americanos.
Movies and heroes in the land of the free
You can be what you wanna be.
(Be what you wanna be)

Americanos - Blue Jeans and Chinos
Coke, Pepsi and Oreos - Americanos.
Movies and heroes in the land of the free
You can be what you wanna be.
