"Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.

And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

But now you've given me, given me
Nothing but shattered dreams

And if I had a dollar bill for all the things I've done
There'd be a mountain of money piled up to my chin . . .
