  • Driving 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, smiling thinking to myself
    Man, what a picture-perfect postcard this would make of America

    It's a high school prom, it's a Springsteen song, it's a ride in a Chevrolet
    It's a man on the moon and fireflies in June and kids selling 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 TV on
    I saw a little town that some big twister tore apart
    And people came from miles around just to help their neighbours out
    And I was thinking to myself I'm so glad that I live in America

    It's a high school prom, it's a Springsteen song, it's a ride in a Chevrolet
    It's a man on the moon and fireflies in June and kids selling lemonade
    It's cities and farms, it's open arms, one nation under God
    It's America

    Now we might not always get it all right
    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 a summer wind
    Over a fallen hero's grave

    It's a high school prom, it's a Springsteen song
    It's a welcome home parade, yeah
    It's a man on the moon and fireflies in June and kids sellin' lemonade
    It's cities and farms, it's open arms, one nation under God
    It's America! It's America! Oh, oh yeah, woo! Writer/s: ANGELO PETRAGLIA, BRETT JAMES
