Song Lyrics

In this troubled world today

We`re asked to lend a hand

Which I will, but first with me

Comes my own native land

Gladly will I help this world

And give all that I can

It isn`t selfishness but first

Comes my own native land

Is it right that we should give

And give until it hurts

To a foreign land that treats us

Just like so much dirt

Those who lead us have forgotten

Love is in the soul

Love cannot be purchased with

The promise of more gold

Giving brings a lot of joy

And this I do believe

But aren`t the ones who give so much

Entitled to recieve

Why do we keep on giving

Is it right that we should please

The very ones who`d like to see

Our country on her knees

If we must give then we should use

A different policy

And give to only those who treat us

Fair and honestly

We give to those who quickly take it

Posing as a friend

Then just as quickly turn and bite

The hand that`s feeding them

I`ll be accused but I don`t feel

I`m acting selfishly

`Cause I believe the country that

Remains strong will stay free

To give is great but are we giving

More than we can stand

I question this, cause first with me

Comes my own native land

I question this, cause first with me

Comes my own native land
