"America" as written by Keinan Warsame, Charles Stewart, Dante Smith and Mark Richardson....
We came like babies
From our home across the sea
to see America.
And the people opened up their arms
To welcome us.. to America.
We came like children
From a far and distant land
To see America, and the golden
sun of freedom filtered down to us,
in America.

And the people stood and stared
Loved us more than we had dared to
in America.

Super Highways here and there
Pretty women everywhere.
Brady Bunch and Smokey Bear.
Buildings reaching to the sky
Afro-sheen and apple pie,
P.T.A. and F.B.I.

The jumbo jet begins to rise
A joyful nation waves its bye-byes

Each religion race and creed
Gets exactly what they need
God bless Johnny Appleseed

    General CommentFrankly, I am AMAZED that no one else has commented on this...interesting...song.

    This song is a stereotype of what much of the rest of the world percieves America as. Similar songs (in content) include David Bowie's "I'm Afraid of Americans".
