AMERICAN DREAM  (C) Marla and Mitch Cantor

 

They said that we could get ahead

Build our future with a little nest egg

Work real hard and follow the rules

We could build a life that looks like paradise

 

            We could live the "American Dream"

 

So we worked and saved and we made a good life

Full of happiness as husband and wife

We raised two babies and we made good careers

We followed all the rules throughout most of the years

 

            We are living the "American Dream"

            We love living in this land of great opportunity

            We are living the "American Dream"

            The "American Dream"

            The "American Dream"

 

The kids are grown now and they're all out on their own

They're looking for success in their pursuit of happiness

They're working harder just trying to get farther

They're willing to sacrifice to build their paradise

 

            They want to live the "American Dream"

            They want to live in a land of great opportunity

            They want to live the "American Dream"

            The "American Dream"

            The "American Dream"

 

                        Once upon a time our forefathers dreamed

                        of equal opportunity all across the land

                        Let's become one nation under God

                        The land of the free and prosperity

 

            We want to live the "American Dream"

            We want to live in a land of great opportunity

            We want to live the "American Dream"

            The "American Dream"

            The "American Dream"

            "American Dream"
