The Great American Dream

Oh, say, can you see

What you believe, you may achieve

By the dawn's early light

Every morning, an opportunity

What so proudly we hailed

Together, a prideful nation

At the twilights last gleaming?

Tears streaming

Whose broad stripes and bright stars,

Whose men and women

Through the perilous fight


O'er the ramparts we watched

O'er the violence and hate

Were so gallantly streaming?

Oh, were so gallantly streaming

And the rockets red glare

The nation as one, we truly do care

The bombs bursting in air,

Economy, climbing stair by stair

Gave proof through the night

Shows evidence of our nation

That our flag was still there

That is still great

O say, does that star spangled banner yet wave

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
