 The American

Deed for deed shall I return,
Justice here does rule the day.
Seek from me but what you earn -
Shop here sir? Then you must pay.

For I, like you, do dream and strive.
I, too, rejoice when I sail the sea.
�Tis not for your sake that I'm alive -
Though it benefits you, I work for me.

For I've a life as good as yours,
And equal rights before the law!
I am the pilgrim to these shores
Who fled the slaver fascist's jaw -
The Nazi camp, the five-year plan,
The "will of all", the king's decree.
But here the chains �round the workingman
Were removed for the first time in history.

Then naught must you demand of me,
For I live in the land of liberty,
With property safe and rights secure -
These United States shall forever endure.
