He’s a man working to pay the rent
She cleans houses their money is already spent
Yet they have the courage to dream
Cause in their hearts they were born to be free

He’s a painter who works on a Saturday
She stays home with the kids cause there’s no other way
Still they have that gleam in their eyes
Cause they’ve got a piece of American Pie

Well our Mother is freedom our Father is strength
Wrapped in Red White and Blue under God we commence

Watch the world as it falls to its knees
We are singing together with pride we are free

AMERICA AMERICA

Puts his life on the line fire’s out of control
She embraces her patients and nurtures the sole
And we sleep at the end of each day
Cause our soldiers are fighting for banners that wave

They’re my children who play at the beach in the sand
Building castles of love just by holding your hand
And the angels sore through the sky
Freedom reigns on the wings of the heroes that died

Oh say can you see by the dawn early light
Bombs bursting in air we survived through the night

Watch the world as it falls to its knees
We are singing together with pride we are free

AMERICA AMERICA

She’s the land of the free and the home of the brave
Stand beside her5 and guide her through passion and pain

Watch the world as it falls to its knees
We are singing together with pride we are free

AMERICA AMERICA
