PREACHER:
I don't care how hard the hardship
No one has the right to steal.
And you cannot buy your soul back
God don't make that kind of deal.

When your prayers all go unanswered
And the dust is getting worse.
And you live near open sewers
With just pennies in your purse.

That is when the good Lord
will become your Savior.
He will lead you to the light.

We are all God's children.
His arms always open.
We must all do what is right!

You may be in debt.
Wake up in a sweat.
But let's not forget
You were made in America!

BREAD LINE FOLKS & PREACHER:
We may be in debt.
Wake up in a sweat.
But let's not forget
We were made in America!
We were made in America!

PARISHONERS:
You can't blame 'em, who could blame 'em?
Ain't their fault they turned to crime.

MALE PARISHONER:
A bar of soap's a luxury.
Don't get much change from a dime.

PARISHONERS & BREAD LINE FOLKS:
You can't blame those kids for wantin' to fill up their shopping bags.
City Hall is low on kindness but it don't run out of flags.

They both grew up hungry.
They were heading nowhere.
Thanks to good old USA.

PREACHER:
All who sin must answer. (All who sin...)
And these two will answer. (We will face...)
They will face a judgement day. (Judgement day)

PARISHONERS & BREAD LINE FOLKS:
Sure they robbed some men.
And they will again.
Poor kids, ah, but then
They were made in America.

They had holes in every shoe.
No dream can come true.

MALE PARISHIONER:
They stole - wouldn't you?

ALL:
We may be in debt.
Wake up in a sweat.
But let's not forget -
We were made in America.

PREACHER:
(With ensemble singing chorus in the background)
Wash away the demons!
Fill your heart with kindness!

BREAD LINE FOLKS:
We were made in America.

PREACHER:
We were...

BREAD LINE FOLKS:
We were made in America.

PREACHER:
We were made in America.

ALL:
We were made in Ameri-
Made in Ameri-
Made in America!
