Bonnie & Clyde - Made in America Lyrics

The Broadway Musical Lyrics
Bonnie & Clyde
the Musical - Made in America Lyrics

PREACHER:
I don\'t care how hard the hardship. 
No one has the right to steal, and you cannot buy your soul back. 
God don\'t make that kind of deal. 
When your prayers all go unanswered, and the dust is getting worse,
and you live near open sewers with just pennies in your purse...
that is when the good Lord will become your Savior. 
He will lead you to the light. 
We are all God\'s children,
His arms always open, we must all do what is right!

CHORUS (PREACHER):
You may be in debt!  Wake up in a sweat! 
But let\'s not forget, you were made in America!

(Now with congregation):
We may be in debt!  Wake up in a sweat! 
But let\'s not forget, we were made in America! We were made in America!

SOME PARISHIONERS:
You can\'t blame them!  Who could blame them?! 
Ain\'t their fault they turned to crime!

MALE PARISHIONER:
A bar of soap\'s a luxury.  Don\'t get much change from a dime!

COUPLE:
You can\'t blame those kids for wantin\' to fill up their shopping bags!

SOME PARISHIONERS:
City Hall is low on kindness, but it don\'t run out of flags!

ALL:
They both grew up hungry!  They were heading over! 
That\'s too good, oh you would say!

PREACHER:
All who sin must answer.

(Ensemble in background): All who sin.

PREACHER:
And these two will answer!

(Ensemble in background): 
They will face.

PREACHER: 
They will face a...

ALL: 
Judgement day!  Sure they robbed some men! 
And they will again!  Poor kids; all of them!  They were made in America! 
They had holes in every shoe!  No dream can come true!

MALE PARISHIONER:
They stole!  Wouldn\'t you?!

CHORUS (ALL): 
We may be in debt!  Wake up in a sweat! 
But let\'s not forget, we were made in America!

(With ensemble singing chorus in the background.)

PREACHER: 
Wash away the demons!  Fill your heart with kindness!

PARISHIONERS: 
We were made in America!

PREACHER: 
We were!

PARISHIONERS: 
We were made in America!

PREACHER:
We were made in America!

ALL:
We were made in Ameri- We were made in Ameri- We were made in America!
