The Lyrics

To live the American Dream
To dwell where it's peaceful and calm
To walk down a street with no worry
No fear of a suicide bomb..

To own our own home, our own car
To drive anyplace that we please
To feel just as free as the sunshine,
And bask in these great liberties..

To be so blessed..
In the way that we are..
No challenge is hopeless
Beneath any star..
To be grateful and proud
Of the soldiers who give.
And are willing to die..
So, that this is the way we can live..

To believe what our forefathers forged
When they fought for the cause..
To do right in our everyday lives
And obey all the laws...

There's no land that is greater than this,
Anywhere, that's a part of God's scheme,
Or planet in space...this side of Heaven..
That beats...the American Dream..

Nothing beats...the American Dream..

Sir L'Air de Farce, this dream is fast becoming a nightmare, as more immigrants are dumped here, and drag along their beliefs & problems with them!

What alvin said. Lest we forget... or lest we lose it, by taking it for granted and/or not adhering to its principles. Superb.
