new american man

I am the new American man
Met my wife in Japan
Adopted three kids from New Zealand
And made my home in Switzerland

Well we are all Americans
And we are all international
We all come from different places
But share the same distinct lineage

Well it may be surprising
That I was born in India
I grew up Russian Orthodox
On the coast lands of South Africa

Well I’m the new American man
And my life’s far from bland
The melting pot don’t seem to melt
It just gets richer as it stands

I am the new American man
And I know where I stand
No two cars, one point five kids, pet in the yard
or boring American plan
