Lyrics

Reporter: `Excuse me mam, what do you think about all the protests in America today?` Lady: `Well, my advice to all the a demonstraters would be either love it or leave it.` Reporter: `Pardon me sir, what do you think of America and all the protest that`s going on?` Man: `Protest huh, well, I think they may have a valid point. I mean, like, something`s got to be done in Ameica, either we change it or lose it.` I`m tired of all your protests They`re getting out of hand And all you politicians You`re too vague to understand And somewhere in the middle of two extremes without a plan I`m just the average man Just trying to do the best I can And I`ve had it with the preacher I don`t walk to him no more Everybody`s spreading doubts with shouts Of politics and war And from where I stand It don`t make sense to be against or for Seams like now-a-days There is no call to reason anymore But the answers aren`t all yes or no To or fro, stop or go Everything`s not left or right Black or white, day or night

America, my country `tis of thee America, communicate with me Three small bullets took the leaders That could help us all unite And the people split asunder In their search for truth and right And the rabble-rousers preached distorted veiws from left and right And the rockets red glare Searches for the dawn`s early light But dispite your flaming headlines I`ll still keep my faith in you And you`re still the same great country That I pledge allegiance to Call me a sentimental patriot Well I guess that could be true Well I can`t help but think A lot of people feel the way I do `Cause the answers aren`t all yes or no To or fro, stop or go And everything`s not left or right Black or white, day or night America, my country `tis of thee America, communicate with me
