One of the entries in our A SONG FOR BRAZIL 2014 feels extremely poignant after last night’s John Brooks “Header of historic destiny.” Below, behold the lyrics to “Born on a US Base” by #GFOP Peter Backof. 

Born down near a deutsche land town

The first kick I took was on the foosball ground

Never eating hot dogs or that apple pie

It was weisswurst and strudel that got me by

Born on a US base

I was born on US base

I was born on a US base

Born on a US base

Got signed to a hometown team

So they put a jersey in my hand

Beckenbauer was in my dreams

Instead of Kyle Beckerman

Born on a US base

I was born on US base

I was born on a US base

Born on a US base

Tried out for die mannschaft team

Coaching man says “son if it was up to me”

Went down to see Coach Klinsmann

He said “son, don’t you understand now”

He said “we’re your brothers in LA”

“You’ll get every chance to play”

I stayed there I’m USA

Now I’m cherunning down the left hand side

Getting crosses in to Jozy’s head now

Down South in the humid Amazon

We’ll prove every single doubter wrong

It’s the US coming down the road

Germany’s ahead ain’t got nowhere to go

Born on a US base

I was born on US base

I was born on a US base

Born on a US base

One more soldier daddy on a US base
