Born in Maldives ( My version of Bruce Springsteen's Born in the USA )

One of the most nicest song for me is Bruce Springsteen's 1984 super hit "Born in the USA"...Now Bruce Springsteen's 60th birthday is 23 September this year of 2009...I want to celebrate his birthday by adapting the above song in my own ways....


BORN IN MALDIVES

I was born in a humble shack
Illegit birth in every way
In Dhidhoo of HA atoll
They call me boanthashi
But I am proud of it

Born in Maldives I was
Born in Maldives I was
Born in Maldives I was
Born in Maldives I was

I studied in Majeedhiyaa
Student of SEC
Trained at NSS boot camp
Square bashing harder by the day

Born in Maldives I was
Born in Maldives I was
Born in Maldives I was
Born in Maldives I was

Got fired by NSS
Dark years came
No company where I didn't work
Years and years went by

Born in Maldives I was
Born in Maldives I was
Born in Maldives I was
Born in Maldives I was

Started to chain smoke
But didn't do dope
Practicing Muslim in moderation
Daddy asked
" Son don't you understand? "

Born in Maldives I was
Born in Maldives I was
Born in Maldives I was
Born in Maldives I was

Got computer savvy in 02
Got crafty in the road
Seven years down the road
Street smart in every way
Striped my jealous friends in a blink
Striped them all

Born in Maldives I was
Born in Maldives I was
Born in Maldives I was
Born in Maldives I was
