America the Beautiful

Oh, beautiful, for spacious skies
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountains majesties
Above the fruited plains.
America, America
God shed thy grace on thee!|
And crown thy good,
With brotherhood
from sea to shining sea.

Oh, beautiful, for pilgrims feet,
Whose stem impassioned stress,
A thoroughfare for freedom beat
Across the wilderness
America, America
God mend thine ev’ry flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control
Thy liberty and law.

Blowin’ In the Wind

How many roads must a man walk down,
Before they call him a man?

How many times must a white dove sail,
Before she sleeps in the sand?

How many times must the cannonballs fly,
Before they’re forever banned?

The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind.

How many years must some mountains exist,
Before they are swept to the sea?

And how many years must some people exist,
Before they’re allowed to be free?

Yes, and how many times can a man turn his head
And pretend that he just doesn’t see?

Oh, the answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind.

Cheers

Makin’ your way in the world today
takes everything you’ve got.
Takin’ a break from all your worries
sure would help a lot.
Wouldn’t you like to get away?

Sometimes you wanna go
where everybody knows your name.
And they’re always glad you came.
You wanna be where you can see
our troubles are all the same.
You wanna go where people know
people are all the same.
You wanna go where
everybody knows your name.

Duke of York

(stand on the word “up” and sit on the word “down”)

The grand old Duke of York,
He had 10,000 men.
First, he marched them up the hill.
Then, he marched them down again.

And when you’re up, you’re up.
And when you’re down, you’re down.
And when you’re only half way up,
You’re neither up nor down.
