"Only In America" as written by Bob Johnston and Roger F. Cook....
Sun coming' up over New York City
School bus driver in a traffic jam
Staring out at the faces in a rear view mirror
Lookin' at the promise of the Promised Land

One kid dreams of fame and fortune
One kid helps pay the rent
One could end up going to prison
One just might be president

[Chorus]
Only in America
Dreamin' in red white and blue
Only in America
Where we dream as big as we want to

We all get a chance
Everybody gets to dance
Only in America

Sun goin' down on an LA freeway
Newly weds in the back of a limosine
A welder's son and a banker's daughter
All they want is every thing

She came out here to be an actress
He was a singer in a band
They might just go back to Oklahoma
And talk about the stars they could have been

[Chorus]

We all get a chance
Everybody gets to dance
Only in America

[Chorus]

We all get a chance
Everybody gets to dance
Only in America

Yeah Only in America

Only in America

Where we dream in red white and blue
Yeah we dream as big as we want to

Only in America
