In this land of wealth and plenty there is one thing that I know
You see smiling faces 'round you wherever you may go
We do right by our neighbor and we love our native sons
We're a God fearing people, yes we keep our faith in God
It's the Great American Eagle that always flies from shore to shore
It watches day and night and it teaches wrong from right
It will watch o'er our land forever more

Spoken:
You know there is one thing to be thankful for in this troubled world today, that we are privileged to live in the good old USA, were freedom is a byword on everybody's tongue, and has been since the day that the Liberty Bell first rung, where hope remains undying and conciseness is a _____.
There's always a chance for little guys like you and me. When somebody says "You can't do this", we utter forth our answer back "I can't huh? This is a free country, ain't it Mac?"
Where truth and faith and justice have made the greatest land on earth.


We never feared and never ____ and never lost a war
And on this road of destiny we know where we're heading for
We keep our faith in God and we keep our powder dry
And for our God and country each soul would gladly die

It's that Great American Eagle that always flies from shore to shore
It watches day and night and it teaches wrong from right
It will watch o'er our land forever more
