Home On The Range

oh, give me a home <br>where the buffalo roam <br>where the deer and the antelope play <br>where seldom may heard a discouraging word <br>and the skies are not cloudy all day <br><br>america, land of true liberty <br>who “discovered” you, too? <br>the white man invades and stakes his claim <br>"we are all born equal, but not you" <br><br>home, home on the range <br>where the pigs and the senators play <br>where all that is heard a discouraging word <br>and the skies can be cloudy some days<br> the water is black in a michigan town <br>kids playing tag in hospital gowns <br>“clean it up,” they say, “make the pain go away" <br>profiteering off water bottle sales  <br><br>home, home on the range <br>where the pigs and the senators play <br>where all that is heard a discouraging word <br>and the skies can be cloudy some days <br> a nation of equal rights for all <br>ellis island, melting pot <br>sofía wants a way for a better day <br>but a wall now stands in her way <br><br>home, home on the range <br>where the pigs and the senators play <br>where all that is heard a discouraging word <br>and the skies can be cloudy some days <br><br>home, home on the range <br>where the pigs and the senators play <br>where all that is heard a discouraging word <br><br>and the skies can be cloudy some days
