Welcome to America!
 


Quietly, in a small, repressed village across the ocean's blue
Townspeople meet, thoughts are given life, a word escapes
Seems a greedy ship's captain had said he could take a few
He'd be taking many, the word spreading from place to place

A dream is born while boarding the mighty boat to freedom
All they've wanted for their children has been given a voice
The journey wasn't easy, by far, even much worse for some
In the new land, new laws were written and the pen rejoices

Their new land is known as America!
