Sunday Singalong: “Woke in the USA!”

Well, it’s the Sunday of the biggest game in the NFL Football season, and while there won’t be tailgate parties, stadium concessions, very many people in the stands, office betting pools, crowded bars with bucket of wings, nachos, and beers, college dorm parties teeming with reckless youth, and flashy, expensive TV ads there will, thankfully, still be a “halftime“.

And, after watching one of America’s music icons and Jersey Shore native, Bruce Springsteen, narrate a commercial for the Jeep Division of the Fiat-Peugeot-Chrysler car company talking about how America should “meet in the middle” (and unify, I presume, under Joe Biden*), what better time for everyone to “unify” and sing one of Springsteen’s most iconic songs

…politically correctly, of course:

Woke in the USA.
(sung to the tune of ““Born in the USA”)
Lyrics copyright claimed 2021 by The MUSEman as a derivative work.

Born in a White man’s town
And I saw their fancy possessions all around
I thought “White people always have too much
‘Cuz they’re hard-working, God-fearing familes and such.”


Born in the U.S.A.
I was born where the White folk stay
I was born in the U.S.A.
Born in the U.S.A.

Got caught in an illegal deal
When a White man’s car I tried to steal
In the jail I had to go and stay
‘Cuz a mean White judge said “You have to pay!”


Born in the U.S.A.
I was born in the U.S.A.
I was gonna make White people pay
They’ll be “equity” someday!

Got released and had to make money
White man says, “Son, why don’t you see”
I won’t hire you with your felony.”
I said, “Nope, it’s ‘cuz you don’t like me!”

Told my brothers at the break of dawn
“Let’s put whitey back where they belong!”
We’re gonna break their towns ’till they’re all gone.
All march together and everyone say
“Better get “woke” or we’ll send you all away!”

Out of the shadow of the penitentiary
Causing riots in the community
I’m ten years burning down their road
They’ve got nowhere to run and nowhere to go

Chorus: (to fade)

Born in the U.S.A.
I was born where the White folk stay
Here to tell the Whites today
I’m a left-wing member of the U.S.A.

I was born in the U.S.A.
I’m a woke organizer in the U.S.A.
I was born in the U.S.A.
I was born in the U.S.A.

Woke in the U.S.A.
Woke in the U.S.A.
I’m getting reparations from the U.S.A.
Woke in the U.S.A.

I was…

Oh, and if you don’t want to wait for the ad to show up during Sunday’s big game, just watch it now:

UPDATE: Just in case Fiat-Chrysler makes this video private click here to view the ad on an alternate website (although, I’m not sure how long that link will last).

…and, while you’re watching, notice at the 1:44 mark the star in the geographic center of the United States is not white – like the fifty stars in the union of America’s flag – but rather red – like the Red Star of Communist China and the former Soviet Union and now oligarchical Russia.

Thanks for Reading! (and, enjoy your Sunday!)
