Young America
We’re the future of our land
Young America
I don’t understand
Why do you all refuse
To stand and pledge each morning
You always have some excuse
You’re tired, atheist, we’re warring


Young America
Why are you so uninspired
Young America
What happened to that fire
We watch them spend our future
Choose handouts over rights
We’ve lost that American way to
Stand up and fight

Young America
Don’t you see

It’s not our leaders or their policies
Not Fox or the New York Times or MSNBC
It’s our freedom and the people of this land
That’s the reason you don’t have to stand

Young America
Can’t you see we’ve reached the line
Young America
We’re running out of time
We don’t know our anthem
And we won’t say the pledge
Don’t respect the military
Because of what some politician said

Young America
Don’t you see

It’s not our leaders or their policies
Not Fox or the New York Times or MSNBC
It’s our freedom and the people of this land
That’s the reason you don’t have to stand

It doesn't matter if you don’t love the president
Or if you’re ashamed of things we’ve done
But just respect that American soul
In the end it’s people that make us a nation

Young America
Hope you can see

It’s not our leaders or their policies
Not Fox or the New York Times or MSNBC
It’s our freedom and the people of this land
That’s the reason you don’t have to stand
That’s the reason I choose to stand
