May God Bless America

 

Matt Meighan

 

May God bless America, the land of the once free

The country I was born in, conceived in Liberty

Now she sends her children off to keep her profits free

And if they come home in a box she won't show it on TV

 

May God bless America and all her daughters and sons

There're no jobs for them anyway; better give them guns

Make them chase the boogey man just to watch him run

In the name of peace and freedom when they've got neither one

 

May God bless America, where things are getting worse

They'll shred the Constitution just to fatten up her purse

I guess war costs money - or is it the reverse?

They're driving her straight to the bank riding in a hearse

 

May God bless America and what she once stood for

You'd better keep your homeless, your tired and your poor

She's busy making profit off never-ending war

Unless her people rise and say, We ain't fighting anymore

 

May God bless America, the land of the once free

The country I was born in, conceived in Liberty

Now she sends her children off to keep Haliburton free

And if they come home in a box she won't show it on TV

 

May God bless America
