"American Dream" as written by and Monty C/neuhauser Byrom....
Standing on the island of liberty
There alone she towers over the sea
Passing eyes and city lights surround her heart
All seeking the mystique that holds the key
To the land of the free

[Chorus]
In pursuit of the American dream
With credit cards and some cable TV
You can even end up out on the street
Win or lose it all
Living the American dream

Farmers tell their story like the Indian
In his own forgotten land
All across the country people are joining hands
While the government is selling off our dignity
Doing all this business overseas

[Chorus]

It takes fortitude just to see it through
But it's the price you pay when you rally to
The glory of the red, white and blue

Calling all the heroes who know the score
We should be taking care of our own
Uncle Sam, he'll put you in the welfare line
And pay a thousand dollars just to buy a hammer or two
We the people - where are you?
