We know you love your land of liberty
We know you love your U.S.A.
But if you want the world to know it
Now's the time to show it
Your Uncle Sammy needs you one and all
Answer to his call

For your country and my country
With millions of real fighting men

It's your duty and my duty
To speak with the sword, not a pen

If Washington were living today
With sword in hand he'd stand up and say

For your country and my country
I'll do it all over again

America has opened up her heart
To ev'ry nationality
And now she asks of ev'ry nation
Their appreciation
It makes no diff'rence now from where you came
We are all the same
