Blue Collar Fighter

As all of our readers (family members) know, I'm not a big fan of the Kid Rock song "Warrior" used by the National Guard. I saw this gem of a video last week prior to watching the delighful Zack and Miri.



Instead of breaking this video down like I did with "Warrior," I decided to become a songwriter instead. If the National Guard can use Kid Rock and 3 Doors Down for their videos, I think this song is right up their alley. If anyone out there has musical talents, I'm willing to sing lead on this song when we decide to lay it down. Without further ado, Rocking the Suburbs presents to you, "Blue Collar Fighter."

Blue Collar Fighter

They call on me to save the world from time to time
I do my duty proudly crossing enemy lines
When it’s all over I go back to work at the mill
Spend time with my wife, drink a beer and just chill

I’m a blue collar fighter, husband, provider
I watch the game on Sundays, kill insurgents on Mondays
Don’t ever mess with my family or nation
Cause I’ll be bringing the pain sensation

My boys and me are just regular guys
Who punch the clock and work the ole’ 9-5
But when Uncle Sam has a war to fight
We don’t bother asking whether it’s wrong or right

I’m a blue collar fighter, husband, provider
I watch the game on Sundays, kill insurgents on Mondays
Don’t ever mess with my family or nation
Cause I’ll be bringing the pain sensation

My DNA was installed with the Patriotic gene
Along with Skynnard, NASCAR and Jim Beam
If you don’t agree with me then it’s time you go
Back to Canada with all the draft-dodging hoes

I’m a blue collar fighter, husband, provider
I watch the game on Sundays, kill insurgents on Mondays
Don’t ever mess with my family or nation
Cause I’ll be bringing the pain sensation
