Lyrics

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.
