I KNOW THE GAME
Don’t be ashamed of who you are because someone puts you down.
Lift up your head and take control because that’s only part of the game.
To make you think you’re less than a man so they can get into your head.
That’s why they keep their foot on your neck because you don’t know how to play the game.
When they tell you, this is not your country they have gotten into your head.
You never hear them say anything about the Mayflower, from which they came.
Turn and tell them that your ancestors bleed red, white, and blue.
We’ve fought in every war. how about you?
When they say go back home, don’t let them get into your head.
Because this is where you belong, under the Stars and stripes,
And we’ll fight for the red, white and blue.
So, don’t let them get into your head because this is the only country that you know.
So, when they try to put you down – wave the flag and let them know that
We have fought in every war, and I’ll be damned if I’m going to lose to you…
“BECAUSE I KNOW THE GAME”.
