It Was a Saturday Night in America, and I Felt Like a Native Son

I know I’ve done the worst, I can’t even sleep at night
I try to find my peace, but the god I don’t believe in is right
So take me to the chair and let justice be finally served
I know that’s what you think, that we all get what we deserve

I wasn’t born this way, my mama treated me like a prince
She said to be polite and have manners because that’s the way my father had lived
But I never knew that man, so what was I supposed to do?
I know this isn’t what you wanted, but now I’m coming home to you

So goodbye, it was nice to know the few who showed me how to live and do things that all don’t do
Goodbye, goodbye, and maybe we’ll meet again soon
It’s been fun but I have to get going, so goodbye to you

The moment the gavel hit, I could hear nothing else at all
I knew that all was over and that I was the one to fall
Now leave me be in this cell, and let me watch as it turns to dawn
Cause come this time tomorrow, I’ll be dead and gone

So goodbye.
