Treasure Island

America


There are so many whys
Asked of America today
'til the governing officials
Hardly know what to say
The hustle and bustle
Have become wear and tear
Many, many are struggling
But, not getting anywhere.
The prices are soaring
Many people are very said
so many are wondering
If they've really been had
The beauty of America seem
To fade out of sight
If you don't know your destiny
And your job as taken flight
America, land of the free?
Sound kind of like a fairytale
When your house and belongings
Have been put up for sale
Who can you blame if America
Changes form flowers to weeds?
For many, many people took
part in sowing the bad seed
Don't think of America
No, no as being demolished
Just some of it's principles
Of late have been abolished
An don't think of America
As a lost cause, no not yet
For, sometime what you ask for
Is exactly what you get
America is still beautiful
And America is still free
But, her complete restoration
Depend on people like You & Me
Along the way some Americans
Might have missed their "AIM"
But of late struggle for survival
Is the name of the game
America may have problems
That's bigger than she
But people, America is still
A good and safe place to be
And, now is the time for
America to strive to stand tall
But, she will need strong support
Which should come from us all
