"Once Upon a Time in America" as written by and Crispian Mills....
Sometimes its hard to be there,
Sometimes its hard to lie,
'Cause I've seen right through the country,
And through the all-seein' eye,
And through the all-seein' eye.

Oh there was a man he sang so pretty,
He loved me for two thousand years,
Why'd he come to New York City?
Once upon a time in America,
Once upon a time in America.

He said, "you all come back again",
He said "Its hard to see",
We belong to all God's countries,
Once upon a time in America,
Once upon a time in America.

They found a piece of paradise,
And built a city there,
Didn't want to see the future,
Once upon a time in America,
Once upon a time in America.

He said you'd all come back again,
This is the land of the free!
We longed to walk God's countries,
Once upon a time in America,
Once upon a time in America.

[Repeat: x3]
Once upon a time in America

He said you'd all come back again,
This is the land of the free!
We longed to walk God's countries

Once upon a time in America
Once upon a time in America
Once upon a time in America
Once upon a time in America
