VP_010988 Verse 1I've spelled a name called mother, 'Twas dearest to my heart; But now I'll spell another, For she and I must part. I'd love to live and love her Beneath her smiling skies, They mean much more than dad or brother, And spell a Yankee's paradise. Chorus 1A means you're anybody's country, M means you're meant for me; E means you're ev'rybody's sweet-heart, And R for the right of liberty. I stands for independence first and all, C for your colors so grand; A-M-E-R-I-C-A, America, Means, I love you, my Yankee Land. Verse 2Our hist'ry tells the story How heroes fought and fell; Our children love "Old Glory" And learn that name to spell. We're proud of all our splendor, And ev'ry heart today Should rise and worship to defend her And learn to spell her name this way.
