lyrics

MAKE AMERICA GREATER

It ain’t about who’s right or wrong
S’about all of us just getting along
Sure hope it don’t take too long
‘Fore everyone is singing this song

Let’s make America greater than before
Just a little bit more
Open up the door
Let’s make America greater than it is
It’s everybody’s business
That’s just the way it is

Come sing the blues with Koko in Chicago
Where blacks and whites swing-dance to the tunes
Come jam with Jimmy Buffet in Key Largo
Where sandal-wearing slackers sleep ‘til noon

Let’s make America greater than before
Just a little bit more
Open up the door
Let’s make America greater than it is
It’s everybody’s business
That’s just the way it is

Even though we’ve come so far
We gotta keep on, keep on raising the bar
Til every stripe becomes a star

Charlie showed us how to blow some bebop
Patsy taught us how to sing a song
Tupac shot the whole world through with hip hop
Pete Seeger got us all to sing along

Let’s make America greater than before
Just a little bit more
Open up the door
Let’s make America greater than it is
It’s everybody’s business
That’s just the way it is

Even though we’ve come so far
We gotta keep on, keep on raising the bar
Til every stripe becomes a star
