John Fogerty

For those of you who've forgotten, these are the lyrics of the song "Fortunate Son," which John Fogerty just played at the Detroit Lions/Miami Dolphins halftime.
Some folks are born
Made to wave the flag
Ooh that red, white 'n blue
And when the band plays
'Hail to the Chief'
Ooh they point the cannon at you, lord

It ain't me, it ain't me
I ain't no Senator's son
It ain't me, it ain't me
I ain't no fortunate one, no

Some folks are born
Silver spoon in hand
Lord don't they help themselves?
And when the taxman
Comes on their door
Ooh the house looks like a rummage sale, yeah

It ain't me, it ain't me
I ain't no millionaire's son
It ain't me, it ain't me
I ain't no fortunate son, no, no

Some folks inherit
Starspangled eyes
Ooh they send you down to war
And when they ask'em
'How much should we give?'
Ooh they gonna answer 'More and more and more and more and more'...

It ain't me, it ain't me
I ain't no millionaires son, no
It ain't me, it ain't me
I ain't no fortunate one, one, one
It ain't me, it ain't me
I ain't no CIA son, no
It ain't me, it ain't me
I ain't no fortunate son, son, son
