Stand Up America
Disasters! Disasters! One by one.
We watch and pray as each they come.
Asking why we stop and sigh.
No answer 'till the by and by.
Over stretched and over taxed.
Our country's back will never crack!
Wars, Disasters, Man made,Natural.
Rumors, Lies, Reality, Factual.
When times were tough they knew the remedy.
As leaders they stood in all their might.
Shining like stars in the darkest of night.
Warnings come from far and near.
Prepare to fight! Said Paul Revere.
But no matter, come what may.
America, GOD put here to stay.
Though down we are!
We'll last the longest.
"IN GOD WE TRUST."
We are the strongest.
