ONCE UPON A TIME

Once upon a time -- [little towns]

I knew you -- [neighborhoods]

Once upon a time; --[trickle down]

Once upon a time-- [Robin hoods]

I believed in you

Once upon a time.   

 

Stars and Stripes -- [Baltimore]

I used to know you – [Albany]

Once upon a time; -- [Detroit, Michigan]

Land of the free -- [sea to shining sea]

I believed in you

Once upon a time.

 

Stacking shelves/Teaching kids

Fixing cars/Going to the gym

Cooking meals/ Planting wheat

Running day care centers

Pouring new concrete 

 

My country tis of thee

Sweet land of dignity

I know you – do you know me

We need everybody 

 

Stars and stripes -- [Black and white]

I used to know you -- […PTSD]

Once upon a time; -- [we need everybody]

Land of the free ---[And …Dignity]

I believed in you

Once upon a time

 

My country tis of thee

Sweet land of dignity

I know you – do you know me

We need everybody   

 

Stars and stripes -- [Rich and poor]

I used to know you – [Elderly]

Once upon a time; -- [We need everybody]

Land of the free ---

I believed in you

Once upon a time

 

Land of the free ---

I believed in you

Once upon a time

Once upon a time.
