    M People and Bruce Springs****

    'T*een' is in the FootyMad naughty word database.

    M People (Tory Party Conference) and Bruce Springst*een (numerous political events) have complained about selected parts of their music being used as 'walk on' sound for key people at political events. 'Born In The USA' is played in full at the Superbowl Final. Musically it is a fanfare, thought to be about being proud of being American, but it actually is the complete opposite.

    Just the jolly chorus part of the song was used. The lyrics in total would be dreadful to be heard in the context that just the chorus was played in.

    You've done me wrong, your time is up
    You took a sip from the devil's cup
    You broke my heart, there's no way back
    Move right out of here, baby, go on pack your bags
    Just who do you think you are?
    Stop actin' like some kind of star
    Just who do you think you are?
    Take it like a man, baby, if that's what you are
    'Cause I'm movin' on up, you're movin' on out
    Movin' on up, nothin' can stop me
    Movin' on up, you're movin' on out
    Time to break free, nothin' can stop me, yeah

    They brag a man has walked in space
    But you can't even find my place
    There ain't nothin' you can do
    'Cause I've had enough of me, baby, bein' part of you
    Just who do you think you are?
    This time you've gone too far
    Just who do you think you are?
    Take it like a man, baby, if that's what you are
    'Cause I'm movin' on up, you're movin' on out
    Movin' on up, nothin' can stop me
    Movin' on up, you're movin' on out
    Time to break free, nothin' can stop me
    Movin' on up, movin' on up, movin' on up
    Movin' on up, movin' on up, movin' on up
    Movin' on up, movin' on up, movin' on up
    Movin' on up, movin' on up, movin' on up
    Movin' on up, you're movin' on out
    Movin' on up, nothin' can stop me
    Movin' on up, you're movin' on out
    Time to break free, nothing can stop me
    Movin', movin', movin', nothin' can stop me
    Movin', movin', time to break free, nothin' can stop me

    Bruce Springst*een, Born In The USA
    The whole song is about a Vietnam veteran who nobody respects, cannot get a job and is rapidly experiencing bad times with no help from the state. Musically it is a fanfare, especially with the chorus of "Born In The USA" but this is in deliberate contrast to the bloke's circumstances.

    Born down in a dead man's town
    And the first kick I took was when I hit the ground
    You end up like a dog that's been beat too much
    'Til you spend half your life just to cover up

    Born in the U.S.A.
    I was born in the U.S.A.
    I was born in the U.S.A.
    Born in the U.S.A.

    Got in a little hometown jam
    So they put a rifle in my hand
    Sent me off to a foreign land
    To go and kill the yellow man

    Born in the U.S.A.
    I was born in the U.S.A.
    I was born in the U.S.A.
    Born in the U.S.A.

    Come back home to the refinery
    Hiring man says, "Son, if it was up to me"
    I go down to see the V.A. man
    He said, "Son, don't you understand?"

    Had a brother at Khe Sahn
    Fighting off the Viet Cong
    They're still there, he's all gone
    He had a little girl in Saigon
    I got a picture of him in her arms

    Down in the shadow of the penitentiary
    Out by the gas fires of the refinery
    I'm ten years burning down the road
    I've got nowhere to run and nowhere to go

    Born in the U.S.A.
    I was born in the U.S.A.
    I was born in the U.S.A.
    I'm a long time daddy in the U.S.A.
    I was born in the U.S.A.
    I'm a cool rocking daddy in the U.S.A.
    I was born in the U.S.A.
    I was born in the U.S.A.
    Born in the U.S.A.
    Born in the U.S.A.

    I'm a long gone daddy in the U.S.A.
    Born in the U.S.A.
