AMERICA, I Believe In You
Some say that America's fixing to fall. If we the people don't
There's trouble in our own back yard;
People are living in the streets,
Times aren't just tough, they're really hard.
Yes, I believe in helping all,
But charity begins at home;
Join me, my friends, in this crusade,
I simply can't do it alone.
The next time you go out shopping,
Look at what's hanging on the rack;
If it don't say, "Made in U.S.A."
Then folks, won't you please put it back.
It has to start right here and right now,
Let it begin with you and me;
America's counting on us,
Remember, this is your country.
I've been thinking this whole thing through,
But there's something I just don't know;
How can things be better for us,
By sending our cash to Tokyo?
The sneak attack many years ago,
From the land of the rising sun;
They learned their lesson well from that war,
Now they call us lazy and dumb.
It seems that their words could come true ,
If we refuse to take a stand;
And only buy, "made in U.S.A,"
Let's prove that America can.
We can't leave it up to Washington,
Because they do nothing but talk;
It's up to us to take action,
"We the people" must walk the walk!
Yes, we can, we can do it now!
We hold the power, we know the way;
We hold the future in our hands,
This is the dawning of a new day.
Let me serve notice here and now,
America's still number one;
Pledge right now to buy U.S.A.
Together we'll get the job done.
We've the power and know the way,
The cause of the Red, White and Blue;
Yes, my fellow Americans,
I have faith and believe in you.
