The Star Spangled Man With A Plan lyrics

“The Star Spangled Man With A Plan” is the USO song featured in the new Captain America movie.  I can’t be the only one wanting to know what the lyrics are, and, maddeningly, they are nowhere to be found via google.  Here’s my attempt to decipher them.  I’m including the youtube video that I’ve watched multiple times in the process.  Lines in (parenthesis) mean they are sung at the same time as the lines above them, lines in [brackets] or question marks in brackets means either I’m not sure or have no idea what they’re saying.  If you figure out any of the lines I can’t hear, let me know in the comments.*

(Music by Alan Menken, Lyrics by David Zippel):

Who’s strong and brave, here to save the American Way?

Who vows to fight like a man for what’s right night and day?

Who will campaign door-to-door for America,

Carry the flag shore to shore for America,

From Hoboken to Spokane,

The Star Spangled Man with a Plan!

We can’t ignore there’s a threat and a war we must win,

Who’ll hang a noose on the goose-stepping goons from Berlin?

Who will redeem, head the call for America,

Who’ll rise or fall,  give his all for America,

Who’s here to prove that we can?

The Star Spangled Man with a Plan!


Stalwart and steady and true,

(see how this guy can shoot, we tell ya, there’s no substitute!)

Forceful and ready to defend the

Red, White, and Blue!

Who’ll give the Axis the sack, and is smart as a fox?

(far as an eagle will soar)

Who’s making Adolph afraid to step out of his box?

(He knows what we’re fighting for!)

Who waked the giant that napped in America?

We know it’s no-one but Captain America,

Who’ll finish what they began?

Who’ll kick the Krauts to Japan?

The Star Spangled Man with a Plan!

(Who’s strong and brave, here to save the American way?!)
