On a bright autumn morning when out of the distance, a great crash had shattered the day, A foreign assassin had come to our shores, to rain upon us fear and death, But our city's brave forces responded with valor and bravely looked Death in the face, Three hundred and forty three souls who gave all, so that innocent victims might live. I want to thank you for being America, Thanks for all that you've done, For your courage and might and for doing what's right, To protect New York City's sons. Well we cried as we watched and the news was reported, of other events South and West. The Pentagon burning, a jet liner downed, our poor nation was put to the test. And our President, Mayor and the Congress united and called on dear GOD from on high, As united they said we would all come together to defend our dear freedom's bright light. I want to thank them for being America, Thanks for all that you've done, For holding together and guiding our nation, to defend New York City's sons. From Kentucky's green hills, and the fair plains of Georgia, Texas, Colorado and Maine, Came thousands of patriots to lend us a hand, for they shared our great city's deep pain. And they worked through the nights as the winter set in, yet they never stopped to complain. For they knew if their hometowns had come under fire... Our brave heroes would have done just the same. I want to thank you for being America, Thanks for all that you've done, For your courage and might and for doing what's right, To assist New York City's sons. As proud sons of mothers from all over the country, they took to the sea and the sky. Be they serving the Army, Marines or the Navy or off in the Air Force they fly, They search through caverns to root out the cowards who from the firefight, they have fled. But they won't stop this struggle 'til Osama bin Laden and all of his henchmen are DEAD I want to thank you for being America Thanks for all that you've done For your courage and might and for doing what's right To AVENGE New York City's sons!!!!!
