We came like babies
From our home across the sea to see America
An' the people opened up their arms
To welcome us to America

We came like children
From a far and distant land to see America
And the golden sun of freedom
Filtered down to us in America

And the people stood and stared
Loved us more than we had dared to, in America

Super highways here and there
Pretty womens everywhere
Brady Bunch an' Smokey Bear

Buildings reachin' to the sky
Afro-sheen and apple pie
PTA an' FBI

Jumbo jet begins to rise
A joyful nation waves its bye-byes

Each religion, race and creed
Gets exactly what they need
God bless Johnny Appleseed

Hey
