My father woud shower for work every day
He'd shave by the old radio
We'd listen in bed to thet rhythm every day
Wonderin' how one man could sink down so low

Then my cousin brought money
from worlds faraway
With colours and strange soundin' names
And I'd search like a sailor
to find where they lay
Promisin' myself I would go there someday

My grandfather gave me an old radio
It played foreign stations
from crystals that glowed
And just like a comet ready to appear
I knew I'd shine much brighter
in that new atmosphere
When morning comes to America

A mother awakens somewhere in the west
the child's content from her breast
The husband soon joins her
and walks down the stairs
finding her a ribbon to pull back her hair
When morning comes to America
