Video: Rick Neuheisel is singing again, a ‘Born in the USA’ cover about the SEC

Coaches Doing Things, Rick Neuheisel, SEC, Singing Or Rapping Football People

Rick Neuheisel captured America’s hearts with his song about Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, and the former UCLA coach is back with an encore on The Dan Patrick Show. He put on his best Weird Al hat for a stirring rendition of “Born In The SEC” and because you’re all friends, I decided to write out the lyrics. Everybody needs a hobby. Neuheisel’s is singing parody songs. Mine is transcribing them.

Born in the SEC, they were born in the SEC
Don’t make ‘em think about it logically
They were born in the SEC
I grew up loving the Crimson Tide
Shed a tear the day Bear died
Sure am loving coach Nicky’s ride
I like my football southern fried
Yeah, Born in the SEC
Born in the SEC
Mike Slive’s like God to me
I was born in the SEC
My daddy’s daddy well he loved his Dawgs
My momma’s family used to call them hogs
My baby sister thinks we all hate her
She thinks it’s great to be a Florida Gator
We were born in the SEC
Born in the SEC
The Manning boys and their dad Archie (I originally heard this as ‘are Gs,’ which I kind of prefer)
They were born in the SEC
The ACC can’t play no D
The Big Ten and 12 are wannabes
The Pac-12 is just late-night TV
We’ve got more crystal than Tiffany’s
Born in the SEC
We’ve got the Grove and the Hotty Toddy
We’ve got the real Death Valley
Can I get a little more cowbell, please?
We were born in the SEC
How ’bout the checkerboards of Tennessee
We’ve even got our own USC
We bought the Aggies and Missouri
Born in the SEC
In Toomer’s Corner, we’ll throw TP
For the smart kids, we have Vandy
When it’s hoops season, we’ve got Kentucky
Born in the SEC
Born in the SEC
We just need more love from our man DP (Dan Patrick)
‘Cuz we’re born in the SEC

Neuheisel finished the song by saying, “Hate ‘em not for what they do, for they know no other way.”
