James Brown

James Brown's, "Living in America"
Better Lyrics:
Livin' in Hysteria-people die, across the nation
Livin' in Hysteria-man to man, psycho obsessions
Livin in Hysteria-talk of more gun legislation!
Original Lyrics:
Livin' in America-eye to eye, station to station
Livin' in America-hand to hand, across the nation
Livin in America-got to have a celebration
