THE STATUE OF LIBERTY

A GIFT FROM ANOTHER NATION
SHE CAME HERE AND CAUSED A SENSATION
SHE STANDS FOR RIGHT, SHE STANDS FOR MIGHT
SHE STANDS FOR FREEDOM IN ALL IT'S APPLICATIONS.

RIGHT IN NEW YORK HARBOR
FOR ALL NEWCOMERS TO SEE
HER NAME IS, OF COURSE,
THE STATUE OF LIBERTY

WHY DOES SHE STAND SO TALL?
WHY DOES SHE STAND SO PROUD?
BECAUSE SHE IS FOR LIBERTY
AND THAT'S WHAT OUR COUNTRY IS ALL ABOUT.

WHEN PEOPLE ARRIVE
NOW AND OVER PAST YEARS
THEY SEE HER FIRST
AND KNOW THAT THEY CAN LET GO OF THEIR FEARS.

THEIR YEARS OF HARDSHIP
COMING TO AN END
JUSTICE FOR ALL
JUST AROUND THE BEND.

THIS IS THE LAND OF OPPORTUNITY
THE LAND OF THE FREE
ALL NEW ARRIVALS KNOW THIS AS SOON AS THEY SEE,
IN NEW YORK HARBOR---THE STATUE OF LIBERTY.
