Lyrics:

This is an alternative, inclusive, rock 'n' roll anthem. A lot of "patriotic" songs tell you what to think about your country. David wanted to ask questions instead. "What does America mean to you?"

(Chorus:)
Red, white, and blue
What does America mean to you?
Independence Day
How do you feel about the U.S.A.?

I feel happy, 'cause I am free
to be what I want to be
I feel sad, 'cause I can see
people who aren't as lucky as me

(Chorus)

This country was built by many hands
From many far and distant lands
A patchwork quilt of many strands
Divided we fall, united we stand

(Chorus)

Many kinds of people have been left out
Until they had to march and shout
It's enough to make you start to doubt
what this country's all about

(Chorus)

There's lots of other lands around
with pretty sights and pretty sounds
and that's what makes the world go 'round
and round and round and round and round

(Chorus)


This song is available on Two of a Kind's Patchwork Planet
