Alabama – All American Lyrics

ALABAMA
All American Lyrics

All Americans

There’s a strip mall round the corner, Lease signs in every window.
And fear in almost all my neighbors’ eyes.
There’s a disconnect between the politicians and the people
We know half the time their gonna lie.
Aren’t we all on the same side?

There’s no us and there’s no them were all out there on a limb.
There’s no Kings and there’s no Queens just a pot of melted dreams
What makes us so quick to fight no one wants to compromise
Sometimes its all so hard to understand. Aren’t we all Americans?

We can’t agree on nothing even as our country’s hanging in the balance by a thread.
There’s bonuses for bosses and bankers hiding losses while our leaders
close their eyes and turn their heads,
aren’t we all on the same side.

What if my sons class was closing down, by brothers house the bank sold out, My father’s farm we could not save. My mother lost her job today
My wife just said tuitions more another year we can’t afford so my Daughters dropping out of school if this was me what would I do?

There’s no us and there’s no them were all out there on a limb.
There’s no Kings and there’s no Queens just a pot of melted dreams
What makes us so quick to fight no one wants to compromise for some time its all so hard to understand. Get back to being neighbors and friends, Aren’t we all Americans.
