[Hook]

from Bruce Springsteen – Born in the U.S.A. Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The end of this song features a long coda, but the engineer on that session, Toby Scott, recalled that it was originally even longer:

I’d gotten a good cue mix for everybody, so they all could hear it, and the takes were like 10 minutes long. On the final cut there’s a rather long ride-out, but it was even longer and we cut it down by three or four minutes. The band just kept playing. There were eight takes of the song, take six was the master — thanks to Max perfecting his bass-drum pattern — and when the band members came into the control room after the first couple of takes and heard the track, they too were going, ‘My God, we’ve never heard anything like this before!’ It was totally, revolutionarily different-sounding to anything else at that time
