Drivin' down the street today
I saw a sign for lemonade
They were the cutest kids
I'd ever seen in this front yard

As they handed me my glass
Smiled and thinkin' to myself
Man what a picture perfect postcard this would make
Of America

It's a high school prom
It's a springstein song
It's a ride in a cheverlet
It's a man on the moon
And fireflies in June
Kids sellin lemonade
It's cities and farms
It's open arms
One nation under God
It's America

Later on when I got home
I flipped the t.v on
I saw a little town that some big
Twister tore apart
People came from miles around
Just to help their neighbors out
And I was thinkin' to my self
I'm so glad that I live in America

It's a high school prom
It's a springstein song
It's a ride in a cheverlet
It's a man on the moon
And fireflies in June
Kids sellin lemonade
It's cities and farms
It's open arms
One nation under God
It's America

Now we don't always get it all right
But there's no place else I'd rather build my life

Cause it's a kid with a chance
It's a rock n roll band
It's a farmer cuttin' hay

It's a big flag flyin' in the summer wind
Over a fallen hero's grave.

It's a high school prom
It's a springstein song
It's a welcome home parade
It's a man on the moon
And fireflies in June
Kids sellin lemonade
It's cities and farms
It's open arms
One nation under God
It's America

    This song always brought joy to my heart. It means, that no matter how many big humongo crisis's we have, we just have to remember the little things that bring us happiness. It tells us that it's the simple things that need to be enjoyed and remembered. Not the tragic and horrible and potentially traumatizing events that aren't to bright in our history. So, just live happy. Go america!!!

    It's the people and the little things they do that make up a nation,this song here reminds us of all the good we have in us despite our occasional mistakes. But doesn't every nation have those times?
