Sun coming up over New York City
School bus driver in a traffic jam
Starin' at the faces in her rear view mirror
Looking at the promise of the promised land

One kid dreams of fame and fortune
One kid helps pay the rent
One could end up going to prison
One just might be president

Only in America
Dreaming in red, white and blue
Only in America
Where we dream as big as we want to
We all get a chance
Everybody gets to dance
Only in America

Sun going down on an L.A. freeway
Newly weds in the back of a limousine
A welders son and a bankers daughter
All they want is everything

She came out here to be an actress
He was a singer in a band
They just might go back to Oklahoma
And talk about the stars they could have been

Only in America
Dreaming in red, white and blue
Only in America
Where we dream as big as we want to
And we all get a chance
Everybody gets to dance
Only in America

Only in America
Dreaming in red, white and blue
Only in America
Where we dream as big as we want to
We all get a chance
Everybody gets to dance
Only in America

Yeah only in America
Where we dream in red, white and blue
Yeah we dream as big as we want to
America
