Give me your hungry, give me your tired
Give me your homeless, give me your wanderers

Statue of Liberty standing in the harbor
This is America we try a little harder
Oh, this is America, ah

We set the standards and everyone will follow
We've got our own values but they're built on the dollar

Statue of Liberty, standing in the harbor
This is America, we try a little harder

Oh, but now it's tumbling, faking, quaking
Trembling on its own foundation
There's been so many warnings
Too late, the old lady's falling
The only thing to do is to get out of the way

Anything can happen in the U. S. of A
Ain't no use anymore in trying harder
Statue of Liberty, sinking in the harbor
You can be a millionaire by stepping on the needy
Words of equality but they're written for the greedy

Statue of Liberty, yeah, yeah, standing in the harbor
This is America, we try a little harder
Oh, this is America, ah

Give me your hungry, give me your tired
Give me your homeless, give me your wanderers
Give me your hungry, give me your tired
Give me your homeless, give me your wanderers
