"The Greatest Generation" as written by and Philip Labonte Oli Herbert....
If you been wondering
Just what has made us grow
A generation hard as stone
My father’s father, may God rest his soul
He taught me something you should know

You put your shoulder to the wheel
You put your nose to the grindstone
You work your fingers straight to the bone

I won't, won't let ‘em leave us, a generation
I won't, won't let ‘em leave us, don't leave us
Selfless, relentless, don't let their memory fade away
No, I won't, won't let ‘em leave us, don't leave us

Remember what made us great
Now’s the time to
Remember what made us great

They dug and shaped the earth,
And with their hands gave birth
To all the modern wonders that you see
They worked from dawn till dusk
They did it all for us
If we take one thing from them it should be

You put your shoulder to the wheel
You put your nose to the grindstone
You work your fingers straight to the bone

I won't, won't let ‘em leave us, a generation
I won't, won't let ‘em leave us, don't leave us
Selfless, relentless, don't let their memory fade away
No, I won't, won't let ‘em leave us, don't leave us

I am forever grateful
I am the man I am today
I am forever grateful
For your hand in making me this way (don't leave us)

Remember what made us great (now is the time to)
Remember what made us great

Remember what made us great (now is the time to)
Remember what made us great

I won't, won't let ‘em leave us, a generation
I won't, won't let ‘em leave us, don't leave us

I won't, won't let ‘em leave us, a generation
I won't, won't let ‘em leave us, don't leave us
Selfless, relentless, don't let their memory fade away
No, I won't, won't let ‘em leave us, don't leave us

Remember what made us great (now is the time to)
Remember what made us great
