I. The tall buildings
Peaking over the skyline

II. Streets filled with trash
Dirty allies peeking through
No care in the dirty city

III. Busy men running
Building to building
Trying to get to work on time

IV. No home in the city
Finding food and blankets
Sleeping on benches
Begging for necessities 
V. Visiting a great city
Shopping, Sightseeing
Busy streets ahead

VI. The tops of buildings
Filled with people eating
Gardens, rushing cars

VII. Night lights shining
Bright stars illuminating

VIII. New land, new me
Trying to start
The American dream

IX. Families see the
Beautiful busy city
That they call home
