about

We're all tryna Make It in America!

lyrics

© 2022 Olex Music

Wake up to the siren at the breaking of dawn
Got a funny feeling that something’s going wrong
Pay it no attention get my sugar coffee down
Eat a cold burrito grab my phone and go to town

Hey now say what na na na
Tryna Make it in America
Hey now say what na na na
Gotta Make it in America

Pushing and shoving on the Metro my ride
Some guy fell onto the rail and baby now he’s fried
Local talking head reporting news of a crime
Brother count your blessings cause life ain’t worth a dime

Hey now say what na na na
Tryna Make it in America
Hey now say what na na na
Let’s Make it in America

Got to climb that ladder right up to the top
Baby keep on running running till you drop
Ain’t nobody wants to be no loser
When the lucky lady calls you don’t refuse her

Drove out to the country for a breath of fresh air
Feel the warm sun and see the old county fair
Guy with a gun says why you out here
Pardon me sir just getting my share

Went to the river see the boats on parade
Red, white, and blue all the flags were raised
Saw the money changing hands left to the right
Everybody’s got a hustle keep it out of sight

Hey now say what na na na
Tryna Make it in America
Hey now say what na na na
Let’s Make it in America

Guy up on the stage says he wants my vote
Telling me baby he’s my only hope
Ooh yeah let freedom ring
First you are a pauper then you’re a king

Oh yeah
Gotta go
The boss is calling
Gotta sell some more

Hey now say what na na na
Tryna Make it in America
Hey now say what na na na
Let’s Make it in America
