I just kind of wrote this, so excuse spellling errors, because I'm a terrible typer and will fix them later. But, ya know, just tell me what you think. Be brutal you won't hurt my feelings

American Dream

Everyone body's chasin it
trying to find that good job
perfect family,perfect life
trying to settle down
and be the perfect husband
or the perfect wife

Ever Since the days of old
when they came from Europe
to this new world to stike it rich
boat after boat
wave after wave
searching for them streets lined with gold

Every young lady
and every young man
searchin for the American Dream
doin whatever they can
to make it in this modern world
that we've created
not even caring if we're loved or hated

some will step over their brother
even cheat his own mother
just to try and get ahead
trying to hoard all you can save
but I hope you all know
you can't take all that money to your grave

Every young lady
and every young man
searchin for the American Dream
doin whatever they can
to make it in this modern world
that we've created
not even caring if we're loved or hated

Nobody even cares
bout all poor people
livin in the streets
sleepin in the cold
eating out of garbage cans
but everythings alright
long as our pockets are lined with gold
When they kick at your front door
how are you gonna come
with your hands on your head
or on the trigger of your gun
