  • Why weep or slumber America
    Land of brave and true
    With castles and clothing and food for all
    All belongs to you

    Ev'ry man a king ev'ry man a king
    For you can be a millionaire
    But there's something belonging to others
    There's enough for all people to share
    When it's sunny June and December too
    Or in the winter time or spring
    There'll be peace without end
    Ev'ry neighbor a friend
    With ev'ry man a king Writer/s: CASTRO CARAZO, LONG HUEY
    Publisher: BOURNE CO.
