I've got a telegraph in my hand
Words on paper, written in sand

We've got telegraph (We've got telegraph), right across this land (All across this land)
It doesn't mean a damn thing
We don't understand
But who needs telegraph anyway?

I've got a telegraph (I've got a telegraph) in my hand (In my hand)
Words on paper (Words on paper), written in sand (Written in sand)
We've got telegraph (We've got telegraph), right across this land (All across this land)
It doesn't mean a damn thing (It doesn't mean a damn thing)
We don't understand (Now we understand) (Telegraph)
God's got a telegraph on his side (On his side) (Telegraph)
It makes him powerful, gives him pride (Gives him pride)
Even in America, god bless America
They understand (They understand) the value of the telegraph (The value of the telegraph)
Hand in hand, hand in hand... (Telegraph)

(Telegraph) Even in America (Even in America)
(Telegraph) All across this land
God's got a telegraph
Hand in hand (Telegraph)
(Telegraph)
