My wish for America is that we will all come to see
That freedom will be our anthem when all are truly free
We are a mighty country, quick to help the other nations;
Yet we keep on passing by the gay rights solicitations
We say we stand for freedom yet still we cannot see
Our citizens crying out to us "I deserve to be free"
We have so much power and money in our hand
Yet allow so much poverty: this I can't understand
So many years ago when America came to be
Our ancestors crossed the oceans to enjoy liberty
They, the immigrants then, helped America grow
Why can't we let others in, this I want to know?
My wish for America is that we will come to see.
America is only America when all are truly free
We celebrate each year our freedom that we won
Lets resolve this year to give freedom to everyone
