America The Beautiful
Ray Charles Lyrics

Oh beautiful for heroes proved
In liberating strife
Who more than self, their country loved
And mercy more than life

America, America may God thy gold refine
'Til all success be nobleness
And every gain divined

And you know when I was in school
We used to sing it something like this, listen here

Oh beautiful, for spacious skies
For amber waves of grain
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain

But now wait a minute, I'm talking about
America, sweet America
You know, God done shed his grace on thee
He crowned thy good, yes he did, in brotherhood
From sea to shining sea

You know, I wish I had somebody to help me sing this
(America, America, God shed his grace on thee)
America, I love you America, you see
My God he done shed his grace on thee
And you oughta love him for it
'Cause he, he, he, he crowned thy good
He told me he would, with brotherhood
(From sea to shining Sea)
Oh Lord, oh Lord, I thank you Lord
(Shining sea)

Pilipino American immigrants


@Keyth Danielsen Oh, bullshit, grandpa. My guess is you've never even met an actual immigrant and get all your ~information about them from Fox News.

Keyth Danielsen

@Azy Not pointless at all. Unlike previous immigrants, the present ones aren't interested in assimilating. Hence they resist learning the language of their new country and expect they should be accommodated. Too many coming here with their hands out seeking what they can get from America and not what they can contribute.
