together confront the job done.

These steps to power
reaped rewards
while the people have borne the cost.

That all changes—
starting right here, right now
because across America

the gangs of much realized potential

We are one glorious
oath of refusing disrepair and decay
disappeared over the horizon.

The wealth of our world
We a new decree a new vision
to benefit every breath

We bridge and tunnel across our nation.

We will America.

We will America
seek friendship and goodwill with the world
shine as the face of the Earth
the bedrock of heart unity honestly.

When America is America is
great men and women striving
for action.

We stand free
our souls black brown white
look up at the same night sky
the same almighty mountain
ocean to ocean, hear these words:

We will ignore you, President fellow you

and along the way

Together, We America

Yes, Together, We Will

Make America again America.
