Proud of the business you built? This song is for you. Tell your friends.

lyrics

I BUILT THAT

This used to be a vacant lot.
I built my business on this spot.
Everything my employees make
Says “Made In The USA.”
The assembly line to the loading dock,
The boiler room, bottom to top,
Nobody’s telling me, I didn’t build that.

I built that,
With my sweat and blood and the grace of God.
I built that,
Without any help from Uncle Sam.
I built that with two strong hands,
A pickup truck, and a few good friends.
Look me in the eye.
You’ll see you can’t deny
I built that.

My taxes built the bridges and roads.
Working folks paid for it all, ya know.
‘Cause Uncle Sam ain’t got a dollar
If he don’t take mine.
If you could ask John Deere or
Smith and Wesson,
Old Jack Daniels now I’m just guessing
I bet you’d hear them say
See the name on that sign
Yeah I built that.


This used to be a vacant lot.
I built my business on this spot.
Everything my employees make
Says “Made In The USA.”

I busted my butt to get where I am.
I got no help from Uncle Sam.
Worked all night, worked all day
Worked Sundays and holidays.
The warehouse and the storage racks,
The tool house and the garage out back.
I built that.
I built that.
