AMERICA, I Believe In You

Some say that America's fixing to fall. If we the people don't
take a stand here and now, they may just be right. Still, I  
refuse to believe that. We hold the future in our hands, folks.

          Things are bad in America,
          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.
