This is originally a Toby Keith song called "American Soldier." I changed some of the words around to turn it into "American Firefighter." I hope you guys like it.
I'm just trying to be a lover to my boyfriend. Everything to everyone. Up and at them bright and early. I'm all business in my uniform and turnouts. I'm dressed for success from my helmet down to my boots. I don't do it for the money, there's still bills that I can't pay. I don't do it for the glory. I just do it anyway. Providing a future is my responsibility. I'm real good under pressure, being all that I can be. I can't call in sick on Mondays when the weekend's been too strong. I just work straight through the holidays and sometimes all night long. You can bet that I stand ready when that fire growls at the door. I'm solid, I'm steady, I'm true to the department. I will always do my duty, no matter what the price. I've counted up the cost. I know the sacrifice. I don't want to die for you but if dying is asked of me I'll bear that cross with an honor because living safe doesn't come without sacrifice. I'm an American firefighter, an American. Besides my brothers and my sisters I will proudly take a stand. When life and property is in jeopardy I will always do what is right. I'm out here on the front lines, so sleep in peace tonight. American firefighter. I'm an American, an American, an American firefighter.
